As students prepare for ministry, it is important to learn how to live and function in close Christian community. For single students, living in the dorm is an opportunity to grow in this area. Dorm students generally have a roommate and share a bathroom with three other students. The rooms are furnished with beds, dressers, desks, and lamps. Students provide their own twin bed sheets, pillows, blankets, and spreads. Dorm Housing is normally available only to students taking 12 or more credit hours per semester.
Separate men’s and women’s dorms are located in Joy Hall. Joy Hall also contains the mail room, student lounge, computer lab, music practice room, chapel, classrooms, and administrative and faculty offices.
A student living in the dorm must purchase room and board as a package. Students may stay in the dorms without charge during Spring Break. Meals are not provided during breaks. Students may stay in the dorms during Christmas Break for an additional charge.
Dorm Housing requires a security deposit of $50 (refunded after passing a cleaning inspection).
To reserve either Dorm Housing or Student Family Housing, security deposits must be received before August 1 for the Fall Semester and before December 1 for the Spring Semester.
