Housing for Transfer Students​

St. Thomas has on-campus student housing opportunities for transfer students. We typically house around 20-50 incoming transfer students each fall semester, and an additional 10-20 each spring semester.

Once a transfer student has placed both a housing and confirming deposit with admissions, they will be sent information on how to complete their housing preference form. We collect preferences for these opportunities through the Housing Portal in Murphy Online.

Assignments for transfer students are sent to a student's St. Thomas email:

  • Fall transfers, in late July
  • J-Term and Spring transfers, in early December

The Residency Requirement for Transfers
Transfer students who enter with one semester completed at another college/university are required to complete the remaining three semesters of the residency requirement on campus with St. Thomas. Transfers having completed two or more semesters at another college/university are waived from the residency requirement. Read the complete Residency Requirement.

Students with questions should contact our office for more information.
