Villiger Hall is named in honor of Fr. Burchard Villiger S.J., who was on the Faculty of Saint Joseph's from its founding in 1851 and fifth president of Saint Joseph's College.

Villiger Hall is a co-ed facility and the University's newest residence hall that opened in Fall 2012, with housing for 400 students - approximately 40 in each hall wing.


Life In Villiger

Villiger Residence Center is the newest residence hall on campus. It offers students lots of community space on each floor as well as a gym and community space on the ground floor. Students also have the benefit of being close to central campus and Maguire campus, which is right across the street. The city views on the top floor are the best!

A Hawk Perspective

"I absolutely loved being able to live in Villiger for my first year. Through living in Villiger I was able to meet not only just my immediate roommate but all the other girls on my floor, some of which are my closet friends. Villiger gives you all the convinces by being centrally located on campus which made it easy to see what people where up to outside on the lawn and get to the places I needed to fast. Villiger to me was the best place not only because of its accommodations but also because of the environment and thus bond, you make with all the people on the floor." - Rachel
