• Have a higher Grade Point Average.
• Have a higher graduation rate.
• Report higher satisfaction with general education.
• Are more involved in co-curricular activities.

Housing Options and Financial Considerations

The University offers double, single, triple, suite, and apartment style housing. Students seeking off-campus housing should consider the true costs of renting and paying for amenities. The apartment vacancy rate in the Twin Cities hit a 10-year low (2.7 percent) causing average rent prices to rise, according to the Minnesota Housing Partnership. Keep in mind, St. Kate’s housing fees include great amenities such as laundry, internet access, cable service, all utilities, and furniture!  Students also share study lounges, computer labs, social lounges with televisions, and other wonderful common spaces. 

Housing Sign Up Process

Everything your student needs to know about Housing Sign Up will be available on the Residence Life website beginning Feb. 6. Additionally, the Department of Residence Life will distribute posters, flyers, postcards, brochures and more!  Your student can also attend an information session during Room Tour Night on Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. Please encourage your student to visit the Residence Life website for more information. If your student is considering living in one of our Living Learning Communities, the deadline to sign up is March 1. The priority deadline to sign up for housing, for all other students, is March 9.

If your student is currently commuting and would like to live on-campus next year, they may sign up at the same time current residents sign up.  Commuter students have the same priority to rooms, suites, and apartments as current residents.

Your student can reach Residence Life at 651-690-6617 or residencelife@stkate.edu
