Campus Life

Residence Halls

A community so welcoming, you’ll feel at home.

Overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah River, Christendom College’s 200 acre campus is home to approximately 85% of the student body over the course of their four-year enrollment. The rural landscape of the Shenandoah Valley provides the students with a serene setting for study, reflection, and communal Christian living.

  • The campus has twelve single-sex residence halls ( 9 for men, 3 for women) which can house a total of approximately 400 students
  • Each residence hall has representatives from each class for the sake of student formation. The campus promotes communal Christian living where the upperclassmen have care of the underclassmen, fostering their growth and maturation by developing relationships and leading by the example of their daily living.
  • Each hall has at least one resident assistant whose primary responsibilities include the personal formation, safety, and security of his or her residents.
  • The college does not provide internet access in the residence halls, not just to keep bad things out, but to help foster real conversations amongst real people – not virtual.

  • The majority of rooms are spacious 3 person rooms (180-208 sq. ft.).
