Spring Hill College values the residential campus experience, and believes that on-campus living helps students to engage in their living-learning setting, and promotes personal and social growth. 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.

Residency Requirement

All traditional undergraduate students carrying twelve (12) or more credit hours are required to live on campus for four (4) years. Students who are living in the Mobile area with a parent and/or guardian, are over the age of 23, are parent themselves, or are experiencing financial hardship can be considered commuting students.

All students seeking exemption from the live-on requirement MUST apply for residency exemption and be APPROVED in order to be granted commuter status. Students who do not apply by the appropriate deadline will automatically be assigned a room on campus. You can apply for Residency Exemption by signing into the MyHousing self-service portal.

Living in the Arrupe Scholars 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

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.
