The University of St. Thomas is enriched by the presence of Catholic 'living communities.' Two on-campus Women's Houses and one off-campus Men's house offer an example of a faith-filled communal living experience.
The student communities are expected to create a pattern of life together, centered upon the Catholic faith, which includes liturgical life, community dinners, household meetings, and personal prayer.
The Women's houses are directed by Fr. Michael Keating and Kristen Grant. The Fraternity of St. Michael Men's house is directed by Fr. Michael Keating.
The Catholic Studies on-campus Women's houses and The Fraternity of St. Michael house are now accepting applications for the 2013-14 school year.

Please visit the Fraternity of St. Michael website for their application.
Faculty Recommendation for both houses.
Residents of the Men's House are required to enroll in the Fraternity of St. Michael, a brotherhood of lay men aspiring to the same ideals of charity, fraternity, study, and prayer.
And don't forget about the other option for Catholic community living at St. Thomas; on the Catholic Men's and Women's Floors, students living within the residence halls (mostly freshman and sophomores) have staked out a distinctly Catholic life within the college dormitories. Catholic floors for the 2011-2012 academic year are Dowling 6-North (women) and Ireland 2 (men).
