Residential students are more likely to achieve a higher GPA, have higher graduation rates, develop stronger academic skills such as writing, public speaking and leadership, have stronger self-identity and awareness, develop an increased sense of altruism, have higher moral standards and greater intellectual orientation, have greater satisfaction with the overall university experience and are more involved in extracurricular activities. Add all of that to the fact that 93% of Bellarmine graduates get the job in their chosen field within six months of graduation, and you have the formula for a lifetime of success.
As part of Bellarmine's mission to serve the whole self– the mind, the body, the heart and the spirit – residence life becomes a large part of our offering. In addition to kitchen facilities, recreational facilities, TV lounges, and study lounges, our eight residence halls offer 24/7 online access.
Students can choose from a variety of living options: double rooms, eight-person suites with two bathrooms, and double rooms with adjoining bathrooms located in same gender or co-ed residence halls.
The setting for our residence halls is one of the most alluring aspects of Bellarmine University. We are adjacent to the city’s award-winning parks and a bustling restaurant district. Students also have access to a wealth of events, such as concerts, lectures, drama productions and NCAA athletic competition. These activities offer wonderful opportunities to make friends, discover talents, develop leadership skills and provide community service. All of this adds up to cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
