2005-2007 Academic Catalog
Choosing to live in a St. Catherine’s residence hall or apartment is a good decision. Here you will enjoy easy access to all of the College’s facilities, services and programs on both campuses. You’ll also find many opportunities to meet people and get involved in campus activities such as the Residence Hall Association. The friendships you make and the experiences you share while living on campus will be among the most memorable events of your college career.
There are academic benefits to living on campus as well. Resident students tend to have better study habits, higher grade point averages
and more interaction with faculty members.
The Residence Life Guidebook is an introduction to your responsibilities as a resident student. The guidebook is an extension of your Housing and Dining Agreement; you are responsible for the information contained within it.
ST. MARY HALL
St. Mary Hall is the home to resident first-year students. Living in a residence hall with other first-year women allows you to build your own community and find the special support you need in your first year of college.
St. Mary Hall has all the St. Catherine’s amenities, including computers, TV and study lounges, laundry facilities and a kitchen. It is the largest residence hall on campus, with approximately 24 double rooms on each floor. The student center, campus library and dining services are conveniently located next door, and the workout facilities of the Aimee and Patrick Butler Center for Sports and Fitness are just a 10-second dash across the street.
STANTON AND CRANDALL HALLS
These two buildings are identical and are attached by a walkway on the first floor. Stanton and Crandall Halls are also reserved for our new and first year students. Stanton and Crandall provide a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. With fewer students per floor than most of our residence halls, students who live here find it is very easy to build community throughout the entire building. Each floor of double and single rooms provides housing for 25 students. Located near the library, student center, dining services, and directly across from the Aimee and Patrick Butler Center for Sports and Fitness, residents are able to exercise their bodies as well as their minds. Rooms are carpeted and the furniture is built-in.
A quaint 1920s building, Whitby Hall is more than just a residence hall — it also houses the English, Spanish, French, nursing, history and theology departments, as well as faculty offices. The top two floors of the building are the residence hall. Each room has large windows with great views of the campus and the Minneapolis skyline, beautiful woodwork and high ceilings.
More than 100 students live in Whitby’s single and double rooms. Each floor has a full kitchen, laundry facilities and lounges with computers and televisions.
Graced with large windows, elegant woodwork, wide hallways and spacious interiors, this 1930s building is a favorite choice for many students. You may choose from single, double, triple or quad rooms. With newly decorated lounges on every floor, plus the popular Sky Lounge off the fourth floor, Caecilian Hall has numerous places for studying, relaxing, and watching TV. A kitchen is located on the main floor and laundry facilities are in the building.
ALBERTA APARTMENTS AND GEORGIA APARTMENTS
Upperclass students and nontraditional students (transfers, older students and/or those with spouses and dependent children) may reside in these apartment buildings located on the southeast corner of campus. Each building has 36 one and two bedroom apartments that are furnished and have air conditioning. Each apartment also features a full kitchen. Rent includes utilities, and there is no requirement to sign up for the College’s meal plan. Sorry, pets are not allowed. Availability is limited because of the apartments’ popularity among returning students. Students living in the Georgia and Alberta apartments must be at least 20 years old unless they are married and/or have children. The College reserves a minimum of 12 units in the Alberta Apartments for students with children. More information about Student Parent Housing can be found at the Student Parent Housing Web page.
The Residence Life Office coordinates all on-campus housing. Professional and student staff members strive to offer a quality on-campus experience by building respectful living communities in a learning-supportive environment.
NEW RESIDENCE HALL
The new Residence Hall is scheduled to be open Fall 2007 to house seniors, juniors and some sophomores. This complex will consist of a residence hall with two wings, each housing approximately 150 students. The west wing will consist of four-bedroom suites with four singles, a bathroom, kitchenette and a common living space. Some suites will consist of one double room and two singles. Half of the units in the south wing will also be suites while the remaining half will be full apartments with two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a larger common living area.
Residents of this building will benefit from the generous community space with separate social and study lounges with wireless computer access. Each floor will also have laundry facilities and a guest bathroom. Most floors will also have a full kitchen and a computer lab. The two wings will be connected by a beautiful commons area perfect for gathering with friends and forming study groups. The common area will include a seminar room supporting learning communities, a full kitchen, a reception desk, staff offices and a gorgeous fireplace.
MINNEAPOLIS CAMPUS HOUSING
Living on campus, you will be where the action is, yet you will avoid the hassles and expenses of commuting. The Minneapolis campus provides affordable housing for both men and women. The residence hall offers security entries, stained glass windows, a Mississippi River view, computer labs, TV lounges and kitchens.
