Living on Campus


You may have heard that over the past few years, everyone wants to live in Montana. The result of that has been a dramatic shortage of housing in our communities, including the greater Helena area.

Thankfully, Carroll has rooms available for our students at this time, and we do not immediately foresee any need to require students to move off-campus into that challenging marketplace anytime soon.

Of course, there are more advantages to living on campus at Carroll than merely cost and availability, such as not having to shovel snow or dealing with a morning commute. Life in any of our residence halls is where you’ll experience the kind of moments that shape who you become, foster lifelong friendships, and broaden your perspective on the world.

Each of our residence facilities has a unique energy and feel. No matter where you live on campus, your home—and the friends who share it with you—will be a distinct source of pride during your time here.

To promote a positive living and learning environment, Residential Life & Housing is responsible for educational programming, group activity advising, leadership development, student conduct, peer counseling, housing administration, and resource referral for students. A Resident Assistant (RA), a student paraprofessional trained to address the needs of students, lives on all residence hall floors. An Area Coordinator of Residential Life & Housing, a professionally-trained in-hall administration, community development, and staff supervision, all support each residence area.

In addition to the STAC, you’ll also have access to The Holy Grounds, Tres Habaneros, and Simply To Go, at which you can use cash or meal cards that are purchased or come as part of your meal plan.
