Apply for On-campus Housing

Class of 2022 International Students

Here at Stonehill, about 90 percent of our students choose to live on campus. This provides numerous opportunities for our incoming students to get to know each other, form study groups, and find the support needed to make a successful transition to college life. Your residence life experience will give you the opportunity to learn more about yourself as you come to know people from different backgrounds and cultural experiences - all of which will help you learn and grow and prepare you for life after college.

Apply for On-campus Housing

DEADLINE: July 1

International students must apply to live on campus by July 1, 2018.

First-year & Transfer Student Housing How-to Guide

The Office of Residence Life has created a very helpful online guide, the First-year & Transfer Student Housing How-to Guide!

Roommates

Students may request specific roommates, but we recommend living with someone you don’t know in order to expand your social network on campus. The housing application includes a lifestyle survey to assist us in making roommate assignments, which are finalized in August.

Housing Over Breaks

International students will be permitted to stay on campus during college breaks.  In order to stay each student must notify the Office of Residence Life before the advertised deadline.  During college breaks services on campus will be closed including dining, student health, and fitness areas.  For more information please contact the Office of Residence Life.

Move In

Please note, international student move in will occur on Thursday, Aug. 23, 9:00 a.m – 4:30 p.m. You should not arrive in the United States early unless you intend to stay in a hotel at your own expense. Please see Step 11, “Make Travel Arrangements to Stonehill College,” for more information.
