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 each student holistically through our on-campus community. Our hope is to intentionally create an environment that is conducive to a transformative 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.
