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.

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.
