Living on Campus

Living on campus has a whole host of benefits, financially, socially, and educationally. Not only is it more affordable and convenient than living off of campus, studies have shown that students living on campus are more likely to stay in school and more likely to graduate.

Housing Application

Bethel University is primarily a residential campus. If you don't live within a 50-mile radius and haven't completed a total of 96 credit hours, you are required to live in campus housing.

  • Students wanting to live off of campus must meet all requirements that are listed in The Log Student Guide and be approved by the Housing Office.
  • An Off-Campus Application can be filled out at the Bethel Housing office.
  • A deposit of $175 must be paid prior to being placed in Housing.
  • You will find the Housing Application in your Bethel eportal.

Residence Halls

Living on campus fosters closer relationships with your fellow students and with your instructors and advisers, creating a tight-knit community where we all support one another.

First, explore Bethel's residence halls and decide which one fits you best.
