UST students have two very exciting and different residential communities to choose from, and each strives to meet their spiritual, academic and social needs on campus. Both Guinan Hall and Young Hall offer students convenience, safety, service and greater access to classes and campus activities.
Living on campus allows UST students to take part in friendships, planned and spontaneous events, fun activities to help students meet one another and a strong respectful community supported by the values of Catholic teaching.
