Special Interest Housing

Special Interest Housing (themed housing) gives you the option to personalize your living experience to help you get the most out of life in the residence halls.  Students selected to participate will have the opportunity to live and work together around a common purpose or theme.

What Are The Advantages of Special Interest Housing?

  • It allows students to personalize their residential experience and tailor it to their own unique needs.
  • It extends learning outside the classroom and enhances the residential experience and the overall campus climate.
  • It's an exciting way to increase faculty and staff involvement in the residence halls.

2015 - 2016 Special Interest Housing Communities

Diversity House - The Diversity House is dedicated to promoting a sense of community amongst students of Stonehill College and explores issues of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and physical, emotional, and mental disabilities.  The Diversity House will educate the students of Stonehill College to think openly and independently in order to live successfully in the modern world.

Mind & Heart - This residential community is centered around personal reflection on the college experience, direct service to the local community, and deep exploration of modern faith. Based in the formation of a supportive community that regularly engages together in dialogue and community service, this residential community is open to all students and will focus on how the College’s Mission and Holy Cross heritage shape the Stonehill experience.

Mindful Living - Mindful Living is a community of passionate students striving to be sufficiently critical of the way we live at Stonehill College. We seek to become citizens of the world through building an inclusive living environment, advocating social justice, and living sustainably in every aspect of our lives. 

Social Justice - SOCIAL JUSTICE HOUSE seeks to bring awareness to current social justice issues and facilitate means to create solutions. The house hopes to inspire fellow students to continue challenging social norms in their daily lives, beginning in our local community. We will strive to be a nonpartisan, unbiased community who seeks knowledge from primary and secondary sources.  All students living in the Social Justice House will be asked to be regular members of at
least one of our on campus social justice groups, such as Women’s Health and Empowerment Now (WHEN), Men Against Violence, the Sylvia Donaldson Society for Women in Politics, the Moore Center for Gender Equity, Lead4Justice, Students for Education Reform, Active Minds, or any other SGA approved social justice club
