The residence center is named in honor of Rev. Edward Sourin, S.J., an early Philadelphia Jesuit, who fought to establish Catholic education in a time when Catholicism found little acceptance.

Built in 1980, this is the second oldest high-rise residence hall on campus. Sourin is centrally located on the main campus right across from the Campion student center.


Life In Sourin

Sourin Residence Center offers students close proximity to Campion Student Center and The Perch where many exciting activities occur on campus. Students can enjoy large community lounges within their suites as well as a large community space on the ground floor.

A Hawk Perspective

“Sourin is one of the smallest residential areas on campus, but that means residents are so much closer! In Sourin, we are a tight-knit community where you are able to get to know more people on a deeper level. Suite-style living provides more opportunities to bond with residents and helps form closer friendships!" - Lauryn
