Carroll College, Helena Montana

Campus Apartments

Welcome to the Campus Apartments!

We are pleased to introduce you to St. Matthew and St. Catherine of Siena, our independent living apartment style residence halls that were completed in May of 2014. Each apartment building has 18 apartments—12 three-bedroom apartments and 6 two-bedroom apartments. Third, fourth and fifth-year students are eligible to live in the apartments.

The apartments have a 12-month lease, starting in May, which allows students to live in the apartments during the summer. The apartments are unfurnished to keep the cost as affordable as possible, while rent and utilities (electricity; wireless internet, water, sewer, and garbage are included in rent) are billed monthly.

The number of students allowed to live in an apartment is the same number as the number of bedrooms in the apartment. All of the apartments are single gender in keeping with the mission of the college. The exception would be married students or students with dependent children.

The layout of the apartment includes private bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a vanity area with a sink, and an unheated exterior storage closet (5’ x 6”) to store items such as bikes, snowboards, skis . The kitchen includes a refrigerator, stove (burners and oven) and a dishwasher—all with stainless steel finish. Students can decide if they want to pay Charter Communications separately for the addition of cable television or phone service. Each building has its own laundry room; there is also one mailbox (operated by USPS) per unit.

There is one Student Building Manager who helps manage facilities issues and communicate with tenants who lives in the complex.  Emergency response will be managed through the current Community Living Assistant Director On Call, Securitas and/or Helena Police. 

Please take a moment to view the floor plan as well as the video found below to get an idea for a standard room in the Campus Apartments.
