The Church of the Gesu holds 1,000 people and features a nineteen-bell carillon. Behind the Church of the Gesu are the Cervini-Eliazo Residence Halls and University Dormitory that have a combined capacity of more than 800 beds. The John Pollock Renewal Center is used for retreats and workshops.
All the residence halls have a commanding view of the Marikina Valley and the Sierra Madre.
