Residential Themed Communities

Residential Themed Communities program provide groups of students who have common educational endeavors or common co-curricular interests the opportunity to reside together in a living and learning residential environment. The RTC application process is available to third and fourth year students.

RTC's establish a direct link between residential, academic and co-curricular life for students within the St. Norbert College community while simultaneously enhancing students’ academic, cultural, organizational and personal interests within their living environment. 

Residential Themed Communities allow students to purposefully define their on-campus living experience and to contribute to the greater campus community in accordance with their goals, interests and pursuits by serving in the Green Bay community..

The RTC houses are an excellent opportunity to make the most of your residential experience at St. Norbert College. Because space is limited for these communities, however, each theme house must meet the following expectations: 
  • All members of the RTC house should all be in good academic standing, defined by The Citizen as a cumulative grade point average above 2.0. 
  • All members of the RTC house should be in good judicial standing with a maximum of (1) alcohol violation and no illegal substance violations. 
  • Members must not be on residential or conduct probation at the time of application, nor should they have any outstanding conduct sanctions.
  • Each RTC house will work with the housing area coordinator to update them about the group’s activities. The RTC house group leader will meet with the housing area coordinator individually once a month. There will also be a group meeting with the area coordinator once a month.
  • Each RTC house will complete an online tracking sheet to report each individuals service hours.
  • Each RTC house will be responsible for following all St. Norbert College policies as stated in The Citizen.
  • Acceptance into the RTC houses program will then remove group members from any future housing selection processes for the academic year.
  • Active participation in the RTC houses program is a requirement of continuing membership. If group performance should drop below an acceptable level of involvement (attending meetings and programs, executing and planning of events, connecting with others in the campus community) as determined by the Residential Education and Housing Department, the group may be removed from the housing assignment they were originally assigned.
  • The group must maintain their eligibility status for the entire academic year. Students who lose their eligibility requirements and/or fail to meet the outlined expectations and requirements may be asked to relocate to another campus location.
