Garden Apartments


Garden East Garden West

The Garden of Brother Leo, commonly referred to as the Garden Apartments, is an apartment-style housing complex for upperclassmen. Located just west of Francis Hall toward the back of campus, the buildings offer students the chance to live independently while maintaining the convenience of living on campus. Constructed in 1978 and opened for the Fall 1979 semester, the Garden Apartments were the first apartment complex of their kind at St. Bonaventure University. They were immediately very popular with students who wanted a more independent on-campus living style.

There are two buildings in the Garden Apartment complex: Garden East and Garden West. Each building holds eight apartments. Each apartment houses six students and includes 3 double rooms, a common area, 2 bathrooms, a dining room, and a kitchen area. Upperclassmen are eligible to live in the Garden Apartments, and room selection is carried out through St. Bonaventure's lottery system. Preference is given to upperclassmen in order of class.
