Many Bonaventure roommates end up being best friends for life.
All students are required to live on campus throughout their freshman, sophomore and junior years. This makes for a fun and friendly atmosphere where there is always something happening, whether at a campus gathering spot or in the room next door.
All first-year students live in one of four residence halls:
Upperclass students are housed in the following residence halls and apartment complexes:
All St. Bonaventure University students (including transfer students) are required to live on campus throughout their freshman, sophomore and junior years except as noted below.
The terms freshman, sophomore, junior and senior are defined by credit hour as outlined in the university catalog. The residence hall and food service terms and conditions are binding for both fall and spring semesters of that academic year.
Therefore, a student’s residency requirement for the entire academic year is determined by that student’s status at the beginning of that academic year. As part of the residence hall and food service terms and conditions, undergraduate students
living in Doyle, Devereux, Robinson, Falconio, Shay, Loughlen or Francis halls are required to have either a silver, gold or platinum meal plan.
Only students with full-time, matriculating status at the beginning of each semester are permitted to live in on-campus residence halls. Should a student fall below full-time status during the semester, he or she will not be required to move out provided
they are still enrolled in and attending courses.
Exceptions to this housing residency requirement include:
Students wishing to request an exception to this policy for extenuating reasons not covered above must complete the Residency Requirement Waiver and submit it to the director of Residence Life for consideration.
Students to whom the above exceptions do not apply, or who do not receive permission from the director of Residence Life, and do not participate in the room selection process, will be assigned a room after room selection, and billed for room and meal
