Residential Housing 

Married Student Housing. Married students may move into their apartments after August 15. Married students are responsible for monthly rent and utility bills (see Tuition and Other Expenses). Apartments range in size from one- to three-bedroom facilities and include a kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Coin-operated laundry facilities are available in the basement. Apartments are unfurnished.

An on-campus playground, located on the north side of the campus, provides children a pleasant place to gather and play. A small park one block from the seminary campus provides another nearby setting for outside activity.

Dormitory Housing. Dormitory students may move in the day before orientation begins. Each room is supplied with a twin (long) bed, a dresser, a desk and chair, and closest space. Bathroom facilities in each residence hall are shared. Men and women students are segregated.

Internet Access. The seminary values the research and study benefits of internet access. The seminary provides internet access to students via Ethernet or wireless connections. Additionally, computer workstations are available in the reading room of the seminary library.

Cable and Satellite Access. Students living in seminary apartments or dormitories do not have access to outside internet providers or to cable/satellite providers.

Off-Campus Housing. On-campus residency is mandatory for all students enrolled in the M.Div. program and for all students receiving financial aid from the seminary. Should a situation arise that requires a student to live off campus, the student must petition the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and outline the reasons why his or her request should be granted. If a blessing is given, the student is responsible for the market rate of the rental and for all seminary responsibilities.

Applications. To apply for residential housing, please complete the Housing Application Form and send it by April 1 via email to Fr. David Mezynski, Director of Admissions and Associate Dean for Student Affairs. Married students seeking apartment rental are required to submit a $1000 refundable security deposit; dormitory students are required to submit a $250 refundable security deposit. Apartments and dormitory rooms are assigned beginning May 1.
