Office of Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life at St. John’s University aims to strengthen the learning community for all students by providing opportunities for intellectual, spiritual, and personal development that complement those offered in the classroom.

We significantly expands the opportunity for such development since the resident students are immersed in the campus environment.

Our goal is to foster personal responsibility, social awareness, and student leadership through programs and activities consistent with the values of the University’s mission by

  • Enhancing the academic mission of the University by facilitating integration of classroom activities with co-curricular and extra-curricular experiences
  • Consistent with the University’s Catholic mission, promoting the development of spiritual and moral values, ethical principles, and an appreciation for human dignity
  • Consistent with the University’s Vincentian mission, encouraging living in the spirit of St. Vincent De Paul through innovative service learning and volunteer activities
  • Taking full advantage of the University’s New York metropolitan location, providing opportunities for students to be enriched by the diverse resources of this global center

By helping students to realize their human potential, the Office of Residence Life strives to develop St. John’s University alumni who are lifelong learners, responsible citizens, and men/women of compassion and integrity.
