The Ateneo de Manila University has on-campus accommodations available to undergraduate and graduate students (local and international), scholars, athletes, and senior high school students, as well as visiting faculty members and other guests. 

The University Residence Halls (URH) complex is situated within a sprawling green campus, comprised of the following facilities.:

1.    Cervini Hall
2.    Eliazo Hall
3.    University Dormitory (North and South towers)
4.    International Residence Hall

The URH community of dormers provides shared living spaces where local and international residents from diverse cultures productively and respectfully engage each other in the spirit of inclusivity.

The URH values our residents’ health, safety, and security.

There is a 24/7 University ambulance service for emergencies, under the supervision of the University Physician.

All buildings are monitored 24/7 by security guards, aided by CCTV systems.

Residents have access to cafeterias, laundromats, kitchenettes, prayer, study, and recreational areas.

The URH has various room configurations that offer opportunities for developing life-long friendships. Students may choose to stay in solo, twin-, and triple-sharing rooms.

There are designated floors and halls that are exclusive to males and females.

Each building has Resident Advisers (RAs) who actively promote and live out the Ignatian values and principles that the University upholds. Committed to an apostolate of presence, the RA seeks to be instrumental in enriching the Residential Life experience and personal development of the resident students, through constant interaction and dialogue with them. 

The RAs serve as adult companions who provide an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect, and who support the holistic formation of resident students through a healthy community life.

Ateneo Residence Halls
Cervini Hall, Eliazo Hall, and University Dormitory (North and South Towers)
Cervini and Eliazo Halls – built in 1965 and 1968, respectively, and have nurtured generations of Ateneans who have soared in their chosen fields, from industry, government, to social development, and even in the religious sector. In 2000, the College of Arts and Sciences expanded into four (4) schools, collectively known as the Loyola Schools. The increasing student population necessitated the expansion in support facilities. University Dormitory (North and South) welcomed its first residents in 2008 and eventually raised the capacity of on-campus student living facilities to nearly 1,000 beds.
