Students diagnosed with COVID-19 should complete the COVID Self Reporting Form and are expected to isolate and recover at home if they live within 300 miles of San Antonio. Those who cannot return home will temporarily move into an isolation space until they are fully recovered. Designated isolation spaces will include a microwave and mini-refrigerator. Meals will be delivered to students living in isolation spaces.

Is there a requirement to live on campus at St. Mary’s University?

We accept applications all year. Since we assign on a first-come, first-served basis, students are assigned from among the available beds at that time. If all beds are full, we hold the application for room assignment as beds become available.

Is there still space to live on campus?

We will take your building preferences, as submitted on your housing application, and what you are eligible for, into consideration when making final room assignments.

Will I be assigned the building/room I selected during the room selection process?
