Residence Halls

Holy Family provides three distinct residential-living experiences.

All first-year resident students will be placed in St. Joseph Hall. After their first year, these students will participate in the current student housing lottery process, which allows them to select from any of the housing options (based on availability). Any student who requires special housing accommodations must contact our Disability Services Office and submit the proper materials. The office is located in Campus Center 213 and our Coordinator, Erin Leuthold, can be reached by phone at 267-341-3231 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

St. Joseph Hall

Saint Joseph Residence HallLocated at the center of campus just steps from the Campus Center, Holy Family Hall, and the Library, St. Joseph Hall offers double-occupancy rooms and communal bathrooms. The four-story residence hall houses both male and female students (one gender per floor) and contains a computer lab, lounges, game room area, and vending room. A security desk monitors building access, there is one Resident Advisor per floor, as well as a live-in professional staff member.

Each floor contains a kitchenette with a microwave and sink, and laundry machines in this building are free of charge to the residents. The laundry area is located on the ground floor across from the Residence Coordinator’s Office. The building is air conditioned and wireless internet access is available throughout. St. Joseph residents park in the Campus Center lot. Students access the building using their IDs and are given keys to access their individual bedrooms.


Garden Residence

Garden Residence HallLocated on Grant Avenue near the Torresdale train station, the Garden Residence is our apartment-style living option. Each apartment is designated male or female. Each apartment has a full kitchen, two bathrooms, a living area, and a washer and dryer in each unit. Apartments either have two double rooms, or one double room and two single rooms. Each unit has its own heating and air conditioning control and access to our wireless internet. Students in this area do not have to choose a meal plan, but may choose to do so at their discretion. Garden Residence residents have their own lot near the apartments. Two resident advisors, as well as professional staff members, also live in the Garden Residence. Access to the apartments is all by student ID cards.
