Stritch offers two on campus residence halls – Clare Hall and Assisi Hall. Both residence halls offer students safe and unique living environments. Living on campus is an opportunity for students to build relationships with peers, as well as develop strong ties to the larger University community. Through educational programs and social activities, the residential living experience forms well-rounded and responsible leaders.

Access to Dining and Shopping

Our residence halls are located minutes to downtown Milwaukee and lakefront beaches, with easy access to county transit routes, walking distance to retail shopping, restaurants and entertainment, including Bayshore Town Center and a grocery store, and access to free and confidential services from the Wellness Center including counseling and mental wellness as well as general student health services.
