Spring Hill's Office of Residence Life provides a safe, comfortable home where students can grow intellectually, physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.

Our goal is to assist you in easily navigating life on campus, whether you are preparing to move on campus for your first year or your last. On this site you will be able to locate resources necessary to a successful and enjoyable on-campus living experience.

Residential Curriculum

With the Jesuit educational system in mind we seek to help develop and support the whole person of each student and create community. Our hope is to intentionally create an environment that is conducive to a trans formative college and residential experience. We proactively focus on three learning goals and utilize a variety of strategies to help students learn and grow through the on-campus experience.

Learning Goals:

1. Students will learn more about themselves. Who am I?

2. Students will learn how to engage effectively with others. Who am I in relation to others?

3. Students will learn about their broader community. Who am I for others, the world?

Learning Strategies include programs, bulletin boards, one on one conversations, community meetings, roommate agreements, and on-campus events to name a few.

    • Monday, January 7th at 9:00pm in New Hall Classroom
    • Tuesday, January 8th at 9:00pm in New Hall Classroom
    • if you wish to request a room change and do not attend one of the above sessions, your request will be voided.

  • Request Forms will be available at these interest sessions and will be due by noon on Thursday, January 10th. 

  • You will be notified of your approval or denial on Friday, January 11th and will have the weekend to move into a new assignment. 

  • It is important to note that improper moves (moves without approval of the Office of Residence Life) are not permitted, and those students will be charged a $150 fee and be required to move back to their original assignment.
Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to your Resident Advisor (RA) or Area Coordinator (AC).

With a four-year residency requirement, students are guaranteed campus housing and are given the opportunity to participate in the Housing Selection Process, to select their residential community.

Housing Selection Processes

Returning Student Room Selection takes place during the Spring Semester for students enrolled for the following Fall.

For more for information on housing selection, roommate placement, and room changes please visit the Housing Selection  page.

Community Engaged Living and Learning Community

Living in the Community Engaged LLC

One of the hallmarks of  Jesuit education is to teach and act with justice, with care and in service of others. With a holistic education and service-drive mission in mind, the Albert S. Foley, S.J. Community Service Center and the Office of Residence Life are dedicated to provide students with experiences that allow for growth through their involvement in their residential community, campus community, and the Mobile community. Students will receive opportunities to take part in intentional and meaningful experiences in service to others. The knowledge and skills gained from community interactions in their halls and their service sites off-campus will enable students to actively engage in transformative experiences in service to others.screen

Student Learning Outcomes:

The “Why” (Self): Through service experiences and community engagement, students will learn long-term impacts on the importance of serving their local and global communities.

Others: Through engagement with the community, students will develop awareness and appreciation for individuals with various backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs, and cultures.

Community: Students will apply knowledge and skills learned for continued development around privilege, oppression, discrimination, bias, and their effects on the community.

Community Commitments:

Students will participate in a 3 day retreat prior to Fall 2019 semester, commit to 30 hours of service (3 hours a week) each semester, participate in reflection, and attend monthly seminars. CLIMB course credit will be offered to those interested.
