There’s a lot more to college than the classroom. At Seattle University, we bring together an amazing group of students in a close-knit community. Living on campus, you’ll have the chance to explore your interests together and make friends for life.We guarantee you housing in campus residence halls your freshman and sophomore years. Many students stay on beyond their sophomore year. Juniors and seniors can also live on campus at the Archbishop Murphy Apartments, which provide greater flexibility for upper-class students. Each residence hall is its own unique community with a distinct personality.Residence halls and apartments are safe, secure and comfortable social hubs. You’ll enjoy a whirlwind of activities within the briefest of walks—a movie on one of several big screen TVs, open mic in the Hawk’s Nest Bistro, a late-night ice cream run to the Cave in Campion. Be warned: it is possible to have too much to do. Not recommended but possible: getting from bed to class in five minutes.
We believe learning happens all the time and everywhere. Learning
Communities (LCs) provide students with an opportunity to weave together
their in class and out of class experiences to make meaning of what they
are learning. Every first year student (commuter and
residential) and many second year students will have the opportunity to
participate in a learning community. Students will be able
to connect to other students with similar interests, take Core courses
together, participate in fun and exciting activities, and explore what
it means to be a Seattle U Redhawk!
LCs allow students with similar interests to develop common
bonds with each other. Continual dialogue with peers and faculty enhance
students' personal and academic meaning making, and deepen intellectual
development. The LLCs are a great way to make friends quickly and
they're also fun! Take some time and learn about the LCs offered at SU
so that you will know what to sign up for when completing your new student preference form.
If location is everything, then we have it all. Seattle University is a beautiful backyard sanctuary (really!) tucked into an urban neighborhood. On campus, our facilities are state-of-the-art. Here’s some of what you have to look forward to in your surroundings at Seattle University:
