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.

Residential Living Policy
On-campus residence affords students added opportunity to become fully involved in college life. All full-time students with 89 or less credit hours must live in the residence halls or with a local parent/guardian (within a 50-mile radius of the university). Students 22 years of age or older are exempt from this policy.
- Students seeking other exceptions to the Residential Living Policy must submit an application to the Director of Housing and Residence Life.
For additional information about the Residential Living Policy or any other residence hall policies and procedures, please see the Guide to Residence Hall Living in the Student Handbook.
