Residence Life & Housing


Prospective Residents

We're just going to put it out there: We have the best college housing in the Midwest (at least that's what everyone says when they go on a campus tour for the first time). And we're proud of that, because we think it's also a testament to the efforts that everyone, from faculty and staff to students and alumni, puts in to make your Ambrose experience the very best.

We recognize that for the next few years, Ambrose will be your home away from home. So the Residence Life and Housing Department makes great strides in fostering a safe and supportive community that challenges and supports each resident to grow and develop holistically.

You'll quickly discover that on-campus living provides opportunities to meet and get involved with other students through residence hall functions, student government, intramural sports, volunteering, and participating in one of our many clubs and organizations. If you can't find the information you're looking for, please don't hesitate to contact us!

How do I register for housing?

The process is the same whether you are transferring to St. Ambrose University or a brand-new college student.  

First, you must be admitted as a student. After that, you will receive a housing registration link that contains details about when you are able to register.

Please note that we assign rooms based on your contract date and building preference (so earlier contracts are more likely to get their first preference). We will email housing placements for the following school year mid-May or early June.
