Welcome Home Saints!

The living options at the University of St. Francis in Joliet are varied and unique, with
three residence halls and several different types of rooms available.
The residential experience is something that enhances college life for regional students as well as those from across the country and even international locations.


There are several types of rooms available in Marian Hall, the Motherhouse and Tower Hall. In each one, there are full-time professional staff members on call to offer support when students need it. In addition, each student has a specific resident assistant, multicultural assistant, and peer minister who lives near them to be supportive role models.
