Housing & Meal Plans

The Seminary currently has 70 rooms available for student use in Buildings 400 and 500. Rooms have either one or two beds for single or double occupancy. Each room has a private bath, a microwave oven, and a small refrigerator. Laundry facilities are located on the 1st floor in the 500 building for common use. Residents must provide their own bed sheets, blankets, pillows, bath towels. The Seminary will provide mattress covers and shower curtains for each room. Hot pots and burners are not permitted in the residential rooms.

Full-time residents (7 nights per week) pay $4,000 per year, plus a user fee of $60 per semester for appliances. There is a key deposit of $25 which will be returned upon graduation or withdrawal from the Seminary. New, incoming, full-time residents must also submit a one-time damage deposit of $75. The Seminary will endeavor to provide all full-time residents with single rooms, unless they specify otherwise. Full-time residents who desire to stay over the summer months (June & July), or leave items in their rooms, will be charged $400 per month.

Part-time residents pay $45 per night, but must reserve a room for an entire semester (15 calendar weeks). For example, you may reserve your bed for two nights per week for $900 per semester. Part-time residents also pay a one-time damage fee of $75 and a user fee of $60 for appliances. There is a key deposit of $25 which will be returned upon graduation or withdrawal from the Seminary. Part-time residents may request single rooms if space is available. Otherwise, part-time resident rooms are double-occupancy.

Overnight Guests – there is a $10.00 per person fee for all overnight guests and the fee must be paid in advance to the Director of Auxiliary Services.

All fees are subject to change.

The Seminary expects residents' lives to reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ in all things. All residents are expected to keep noise levels down and to care for the facilities. All residents are expected to observe faithfulness in marriage and chastity in singleness. Tobacco, alcohol and illicit drugs are prohibited in the residence hall.

Meal Plans
The Association of Theological Schools requires the Seminary to provide some form of spiritual formation outside of the classroom curriculum. One way in which we meet this requirement is through community luncheons. On the parent campus we have a refectory that provides the students with fellowship at table as an additional means of fostering their orientation to ministry. Studying and eating together encourage our students to see and appreciate the intrinsic worth of others regardless of the differences of race, gender, class, or denominational affiliation.

Meal Plan Costs:

  • Mid-day Meals for Track 1 Commuter Students = $624 for the academic year (3 meals/wk.)
  • Mid-day Meals for Track II Commuter Students = $208 for the academic year (Sat. meal)
  • Mid-day Meals for Full-time Residential Students = $832 for the academic year (4 meals/week)

Students who do not opt for a meal plan for the academic year may purchase individual meal tickets from the Auxiliary Services office (room 212 in the Administration Building).
