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.

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.
