Residence Hall Life at Covenant College

Hall Life

At Covenant, our welcoming family atmosphere is well known. And nowhere is that truer than in our residence halls, where you will join in celebrating the uniqueness of individuals and become a valued member of a dynamic community.


You’ll discover exciting, new experiences living in one of Covenant’s four residence halls. Not only will you join a close, supportive community of students, but you’ll find that each building has its own distinctive personality and each floor has its own identity and traditions.

Form Lifelong Friendships.
Your residence hall is more than a place to sleep and keep your stuff--it's part of your education while a Covenant student. It’s where you’ll meet your best friends and make some of your best college memories. Late-night talks, game nights, listening to music, watching movies, hall events and activities… these are just a few of the ways you’ll grow and learn together to make the most of life at Covenant outside of the classroom.


Receive Seasoned Guidance.
While you live in the residence halls you’ll have a Resident Assistant (RA), an upperclassman who lives on your floor and guides you through the transition to college life. Each hall/floor also is home to a member of the Orientation Team, whose mission is to make sure that all new students get the support, answers, and advice they need. All Residence Life staff focus on building a tightly-knit community in an educational atmosphere. They’re readily available to listen, answer challenging questions, and serve you.


Join in Spirit.
Discipleship Coordinators, assigned to each floor, lead Bible studies and look out for the spiritual development of other students on his or her floor. Hall Council representatives organize programs for your residence hall and often the entire campus community.


At Covenant, we’re a welcoming group of students, faculty, and staff who share a common bond—an overriding commitment to Jesus Christ in all aspects of our lives. You’ll discover a bigger family than you ever expected.

“Covenant’s hall life allows you to be involved in something that is bigger than yourself. You will never have an opportunity to live with 30 guys your age and share your life, struggles, and joys together. It’s a beautiful thing that reflects God’s work in our lives.”

“I love, love, love my hall! I met these girls my first week of school and each of them have had a continuing impact on my life in various ways throughout this year. My particular hall this year had a really cool range of ages and majors... This group of girls (most of them returners to the hall) have welcomed me in since day one and have made me feel so loved and included.”
