Siena Primo and Secondo

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.

Room Assignments

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. This process allows for students to live in a more compatible environment as part of a community of students with a wide variety of personalities and interests. Applications will not be considered complete until all of the following are received:

  1. Submit Online a Residence Hall Application
  2. Room Deposit $100, Damage Deposits $ 85, and Application fee $15. Total Deposit: $200

Residential Living Policy

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.
