The Siena residence hall complex — Bellarmine's newest residential living space — features four halls that together serve as a unique, functional and technologically advanced living-learning community. The four halls surround Arboreto, a Tuscan-style green space and gathering area for students, with a small amphitheater, fire pit and landscaped water feature. The Siena complex also features a 200-seat residential dining hall, The Palio, along with Catie's Café.
Like other recent construction on campus, the buildings are designed with no obvious fronts or backs, so that they're attractive and welcoming from any direction. The complex contains several gathering areas, study spaces, kitchens and laundry facilities, game rooms, and quiet space for meditation and prayer. Keyless entry and a staff apartment ensure safety and independence for Siena's residents.
- Siena Primo: 116-beds and Catie's Café
- Siena Secondo: 145 beds
When placing paired students into buildings and room assignments, we are very intentional about building strong communities and well-balanced halls consisting of diverse students.

On-campus residence affords
students added opportunity to become fully involved in college life. All full-time
first, second and third year students who are 22 years of age or younger must
live in the residence halls or with a local parent/legal guardian (within a 50
mile radius of the university). Exceptions may be
made in special cases, but must have prior approval from the Director of
Housing and Residence Life. If a first, second, or third year student does not
live either with a parent/legal guardian or in the halls and has not applied
for an exception, the student may be subject to judicial sanctioning from the
University and/or housing fines.
