You are here:  Campus Life > Residence Life

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.

Room Change Week

The Office of Residence Life is hosting Room Change Week beginning Monday, January 7th. This is the dedicated time for students to change their on-campus assignment should they wish to do so. In order to ensure that this process runs smoothly and efficiently, there are a few important things to note:

  • Students wishing to request a room change must attend one of two available interest sessions:
    • 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).
