St Vladimir's Seminary provides on-campus housing for students in full-time residential programs and provides accommodations during the one-week intensives for Doctor of Ministry students and students in other low-residency programs.
Applying for Housing
Applications for on-campus housing are made directly to Fr David Mezynski, Associate Dean for Student Affairs. To apply for on-campus housing applicants must submit a completed Housing Application Form to Fr David Mezynski by April 15. (Applications will be considered after this date, but housing assignments begin at this time.)
Upon admittance, students who have submitted a Housing Application Form will be tentatively assigned a dormitory room or apartment. These assignments are confirmed when the office of the Associate Dean for Student Affairs receives the refundable housing deposit. A deposit form and notification of deposit amounts are sent to students upon admission.
Married students normally move into their apartments on or after August 1. In some circumstances it may be possible to arrange for an earlier arrival. Please contact Fr David Mezynski for further information.
On-Campus Single Student Housing
Rooms for single students are located in the Germack Building at the center of campus and in the North Dormitory. Each room is supplied with a bed, a dresser, a desk and chair, and closet space. Bathroom facilities in each residence hall are shared. Men and women are segregated.
Laundry facilities are available in both dormitories. Each residence hall has a Common Room for gatherings and social functions.
On-Campus Married Student Housing
The seminary provides apartments for married students. The apartments are located on the north and west sides of campus.
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 each provides basic accommodations, including a kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Laundry facilities are easily accessible on campus. Apartments are unfurnished.
An on-campus playground, situated near the north-side apartments, provides children of students a pleasant place to gather and play. A small park one block from the seminary campus provides another nearby setting for outside activity.
The seminary values the research and study benefits of internet access. Students living on campus access the seminary network and Internet using their own personal computers equipped with ethernet connections. Wireless Internet can also be accessed from most areas on campus.
In addition, computer workstations are available in the reading room of the Library.
On-campus residency is mandatory for all students in the M.Div. program and all students receiving financial aid from the seminary. Certain circumstances do arise, however, that may require married students to live off-campus. In these rare cases, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs must receive a formal petition from the student describing the reason for the request. Rental contracts for off-campus apartments must not be made without the knowledge and consent of the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. If a blessing is given, married students are responsible for the market rate of the rental.
Please feel free to contact Fr. David Mezynski with any questions on housing or the housing application process.
