The residential program is designed for the Intensives program and Tech/Design program students in good academic standing who are prepared to behave with self-discipline and maturity.
All high school students are required to live on campus unless they live with parents or legal guardians within commuting distance of DeSales. All students living on campus are required to be on the meal plan.
All residential (non-commuting) students are housed in an undergraduate residence hall on the DeSales University campus. This hall is co-educational with men and women housed on opposite ends of one floor, separated by staff residence counselors, who will occupy rooms in the center of the floor. Curfews and an all-night counselor presence will be among the measures taken to enforce the code of conduct. STI reserves the right to dismiss and send home any student whose behavior is deemed inappropriate.
Rooms are double occupancy, and are air-conditioned. Roommates are assigned by STI, though it is possible to make requests.
Residence Hall living carries responsibilities on everyone's part. Parents should consider whether their son or daughter has reached a level of maturity to conduct him or herself appropriately in a campus residence situation. The staff is responsible for providing supervision, guidance, and activities. Students must accept the responsibility for being considerate of others and the campus community, and for observing the Code of Conduct. The rules for this program are more strict than for our college students, as many of our STI students are pre-college age.
Three meals a day, seven days a week, are provided by campus food services in the cafeteria. The menu changes daily.
