Carroll Housing Overview
There are more advantages to living on campus at Carroll than not having to shovel snow or deal 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.
Carroll's residence halls and apartments are designed to accommodate the living needs of today's college student - both on a personal and an academic level - providing a wide variety of services close to home. Each hall has a dedicated computer lab with academic software where students can work on class projects without leaving home, a lounge area where students can relax, study, and hold social events, and a chapel for Campus Ministry events and a space for reflection, meditation, and prayer. Basic amenities throughout our residence halls include laundry facilities, wi-fi, closets, X-long twin beds, dressers, desks, and chairs. Shared restroom and shower facilities are available on each floor of St. Charles, Guadalupe, and Borromeo Halls. Trinity Hall and the Campus Apartments offer suites with shared bathroom and shower facilities within each unit. Each residence falls under the direct supervision of an Area Coordinator, and all are staffed by live-in Resident Assistants and Peer Ministers.
Known as “Guad,” this is where most first-year students at Carroll live, benefiting from a shared transition to college life. With around 350 students, Guad offers separate floors for male and female students, abundant activities, spacious common areas, a computer lab, kitchen, laundry facilities throughout, and close proximity to the famous Guad Hill Slip-N-Slide.
St. Charles Hall
St. Charles Hall—referred to as “Charlies”—is the first building ever constructed on the Carroll campus and is home to nearly 200 students. With single-, double-, triple-, and quad-occupancy rooms available, Charlies easily boasts as much architectural character and historical intrigue as any building on campus.
Borromeo Hall was originally built for students entering the priesthood, and has maintained its reputation as the residence hall for students who want a more quiet and peaceful setting. Known as “Borro,” it offers close proximity to classrooms, labs, and the dining hall.
Built in 2003, Trinity Hall offers 51 four-person suites, with eight distinct layouts available. Each suite comes with living room furniture, as well as a galley-style kitchen, a bathroom with separate vanities, and furnished bedrooms with a loft kit.
Available to third-, fourth-, and fifth-year students, the Campus Apartments offer beautiful living accommodations with a more independent feel than our traditional residence halls. Each building has 18 unfurnished apartments, including 12 three-bedroom units and six two-bedroom units, all of which feature private bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
Even those students not required to do so often choose to live on campus for the convenience factors, as well as to stay close and connected with the Carroll community. Find out more
