The Catholic University of America gives you the best of both worlds — an independent living experience, and a supportive community you’ll come to lean on and appreciate in challenging times. You’ll enjoy both the beauty of our 176-acre parklike campus, and the excitement of living in a truly global city.

Living at Catholic University you can be confident that you will be in an environment that is designed to ensure your safety, promote wellness, and foster your growth as a whole person. All of our undergraduate student residence halls are single-sex by building. You’ll start hearing about our programs to promote healthy behaviors on the first day of orientation. And you can feel secure knowing that student safety is the University’s highest priority.
