Saint Martin's coed residential village offers both privacy and community. The Residence Life Program is dedicated to a safe and secure environment. We strive to make your university home a comfortable place to build relationships, develop social responsibility, and achieve academic success.

Residence halls

Students have several housing options available, including:

  • Baran Hall (traditional residence hall)
  • Burton Hall (furnished apartments)
  • Spangler Hall (suites and furnished apartments)
  • Parsons Hall includes our first-year student residence hall featuring a large common area on the first floor in the center. Parsons Hall has two styles of rooms for students. First-year students are assigned a double room.

All four halls are the site for activities ranging from movie nights and billiards competitions to craft nights and other social activities. Residents have in-room access to the campus network, e-mail and Internet services.

The residence halls have been fitted with outside lighting and card proximity systems. Saint Martin’s provides 24-hour security services and escorts at night, in addition to actively promoting awareness and crime prevention.

Special interest communities

Students may also choose to live in one of our special interest communities, the Norcia Leadership Community or our Oikos Residential Learning Community with special emphases on leadership and stewardship.

Because Saint Martin's is committed to building a strong sense of community in the Benedictine tradition, all single undergraduate students younger than 21 and who have fewer than 60 semester hours of college credit (running start credits do not apply) are required to live on campus. Exceptions are covered in the University's Housing Exemption Policy. Please call 360-486-8856 or email your questions to Housing and Residence Life.
