Housing for Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors

Canevin & Lowe Halls

Canevin and Lowe Halls connect, making two large wings for student housing. While both buildings contain university facilities (including professional offices, student organization offices, classrooms and Lowe Dining Hall) on their lower levels, the floors dedicated to student housing have their own entrances and security. A total of 134 men and women live in the buildings on alternating floors, with a resident assistant on each floor. A residence life professional also lives in the buildings. All rooms in Canevin and Lowe Halls are single occupancy. The fifth floor of Canevin Hall is an official “quiet floor.” These halls also connect to Maura Hall and the Administration Building.

DeChantal Hall

DeChantal Hall, Seton Hill's newest residence hall is located adjacent to Farrell Hall. This hall is named for Sister De Chantal Leis (“Dish” to her students), a Seton Hill alumna, former dean of students and Seton Hill’s first director of alumnae relations. The two-story hall has six-person occupancy suites and houses more than 100 students. Two resident assistants and one Seton Hill residence life professional also live in the building.


Farrell Hall

This three-story building, named in honor of former University President Eileen Farrell, was the first suite-style residence hall at Seton Hill. A total of 113 men and women reside in Farrell Hall, in four and six-person suites, each containing single and double-occupancy bedrooms. Each suite in Farrell Hall has its own living room and bathroom/shower facilities. Student mailboxes and a large lobby are on the first floor; the second floor features an expansive lounge containing kitchen facilities, a big-screen TV, a pool/ping pong table and study stations with computers. Four resident assistants live in the building, along with a residence life professional.

Maura Hall 

Maura Hall is part of what is referred to as the "main complex," as it connects to Canevin and Lowe Halls and the Administration Building. First-year women are housed on the fourth floor of Maura Hall, and sophomores, juniors and seniors are housed on the fifth floor. Each floor houses more than 30 residents along with a resident assistant. The floors contain single, double, triple and quad occupancy rooms. Like Canevin and Lowe Halls, the lower floors of Maura contain university offices and classrooms; the floors containing student housing have their own entrances and security. 


The YMCA on South Maple Avenue in downtown Greensburg houses Seton Hill sophomores, juniors and seniors. Single and double rooms are available. Students living at the YMCA have access to coin-operated laundry and receive free YMCA memberships.
