JST owns and maintains three student apartment buildings, offering studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom accommodations.

The school also hosts and supports a lay intentional community.

Jesuits may make housing arrangements through the Jesuit Community at JST by contacting the rector, Martin Connell, S.J., regarding housing. Martin may be reached at or (510) 225-6199.

Other Graduate Theological Union (GTU) schools may have availability in their residence halls and apartments. On the GTU Housing page, you can find the housing contact person for each of the member schools as well as a neighborhood guide and suggestions for finding local housing.

The Office of Accessible Education has been designated by the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University to ensure access for all students with disabilities to all academic programs and Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University resources, which include on-campus housing accommodations. Types of disabilities include medical, physical, psychological, attention-deficit, and learning disabilities.

Reasonable accommodations are provided to minimize the effects of a disability on your ability to maximize the potential for success. If you feel you need a specific housing accommodation you must register with the office of accessible education and submit appropriate documentation from a qualified professional (e.g., a psychiatrist, psychologist, or physician). Once the appropriate documentation has been submitted, the Office of Accessible Education will inform the JST-SCU Housing Office of the appropriate housing accommodation to offer you.

The Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University does not provide assessment for documenting most disabilities. The Office of Accessible Education can provide referrals to qualified professionals for some disabilities.
