About Catholic University of America

The Catholic University of America is unique among universities in the United States — even among Catholic universities. And it’s not just because they are located minutes from the heart of the nation’s capital in Washington, D.C.

The Catholic University of America was specifically founded by the Catholic bishops of the United States, with a charter from then Pope Leo XIII, to be the national university of the Catholic Church in America.

The university seek to cultivate a new generation of Catholic Minds, to find new and exciting ways to apply the inexhaustible resources of the Catholic intellectual tradition, and to take the best thinking of Catholic Minds, past and present, to help solve the problems of contemporary life and enrich the culture around us.

The seat of government of the world’s most influential nation is a magnet for businesses, foundations, aid agencies, science and technology centers, think tanks, charities, research institutes, cultural organizations, and policy advocates.


On the day you move into your residence hall for the first time at Catholic University — whether it’s one of the eight houses in Centennial Village or the five-story Flather Hall — you will be setting out on an adventure in independent living within a caring and supportive community. First-year and sophomore students are required to reside on campus unless approved for commuter status. Many juniors and seniors choose to continue to live on campus and take advantage of the convenient residential support services.

The Office of Housing Services offers a variety of residence hall options ranging from the traditional (a shared double or triple room with a shared bathroom down the hall) to suites (multiple rooms sharing a bathroom) and apartments. Undergraduate students at Catholic University live in single-sex residence halls. Coupled with programs directed toward students' personal, spiritual, and moral development, single-sex housing fosters an environment of virtuous living consistent with Catholic teaching. With a variety of residential buildings available, on-campus living can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience during your entire academic career.

The University also provides several off-campus housing resources to assist upper-level and graduate students in making educated choices about off-campus housing options.
