Xavier Global House is on the north end of campus and houses approximately 200 residents. Because of its size Xavier residents enjoy a strong sense of community and find it easy to know each other by name.
The Murphy Apartments provide a variety of apartment living options for primarily upper-class undergraduate students as well as graduate and law students. This living option speaks to the needs and preferences for students seeking to live more independently.
The Peter-Hans Kolvenbach Community is a service-learning living experience available to eight current students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. This community provides students with the opportunity to live with other students engaged in service and simple living. Being part of this intentional living community provides students with an opportunity to create a lifestyle that deeply integrates the five values of the Kolvenbach Community: Service, Spirituality, Solidarity, Community and Simple Living.
