UHC is opening its first Residence Hall in 2018. Living on campus at UHC is affordable and convenient. All UHC first-year students living beyond a 50-mile radius from campus are required to live on campus. There are many benefits of living on campus, including higher GPAs, higher graduation rates, and being an active part of our community. As an on-campus resident, you will enjoy amenities of the new facility, including a gym that is free to residents, experience being a part of a smaller campus community and fostering greater friendships and student interaction beyond the classroom.

To apply for a room and secure your place in the priority line, apply for housing as soon as you are accepted by visiting Housing applications will be available on
March 1st, 2018, for the 2019 academic year that begins this fall 2018 semester. All housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on when you apply for housing. Please pay the $200, non-refundable application fee and sign the housing contract before June 1st, 2018, to complete your housing application and to reserve your room.

UHC’s housing facility is co-ed and is available to all students and all majors. Fifty beds have been reserved for existing students, so hurry and apply today!

Move-in day will be here before you know it! Once the housing application is complete, you can search for roommates leading up to room assignments in March and April. Check your mailbox and emails for details.

Room assignments are based on the date both the housing application form and the housing application fee have been received, so pay promptly in order to ensure you keep your place in
the priority line. Upon the completion of your housing contract, you will receive an e-mail instructing you on how to pay your application fee. Once we have received your housing
application, housing contract, and application fee, you will have secured your housing at the University of Holy Cross.

Students who have successfully completed the housing application will be required to complete and sign an academic-year contract. First-year students who begin classes in the Summer sessions or Fall semesters are required to live on campus for the Fall and Spring semesters. If you are a first-year student beginning classes in the Spring, you are only required to live on campus for the Spring semester.

Exemption Criteria

All first-year, full-time students living beyond a fifty-mile radius of the UHC campus are required to live on campus. Exemptions may be granted to the first-year housing requirement
by contacting Residence Life at if you meet the following exemption criteria.

  • Age 21 years or older as of the first day of Fall classes
  • Married as of the first day of Fall classes
  • Custody of one or more dependent children
  • Part-time enrollment
  • Military service
  • Reside with a family member that is within a 50-mile radius of campus in a property owned by an immediate family member (parent, legal guardian, grandparent, aunt, or uncle)

Failure to provide adequate support for exemption or providing false or misleading information on which a granted exemption is made would subject the student to a penalty fee for the term of enrollment assessed on the student’s account for each semester in which the student does not comply. Disciplinary action may also apply in compliance with the Student Handbook.


UHC is pleased to offer campus dining. All on-campus residents are required to have a meal plan.

  • Meal plans for the café are issued on a per semester basis and do not roll over
  • There are two different meal plan options to suite your needs

Meal plans offer a combination of varying amounts of Bayou Bucks. They are redeemed through your UHC ID card at the café and on campus vending machines. The Bayou Bucks allow for purchasing food a la carte, at any time the café is open. The unused funds at the end of the semester will not be refunded or rolled over to the next semester

  Plan A Plan B
By Semester 3 Meals/Day 2 Meals/Day
Fall $2,400 $1,950
Spring $2,400 $1,950
