A big part of Evangel’s culture is life on campus. That is why Evangel is primarily a residential campus for all traditional-aged undergraduate students, unless you live at home and commute to campus or meet one of the other qualifications (see below in Off-Campus Housing Requirements). You can also see frequently asked questions about roommate matching, room assignments, and other housing policies (FAQs Housing Policies) for further information. Evangel operates in compliance with the Fair Housing Act and the 504 Rehabilitation Act concerning Service and Assistance Animals.
Each residence hall is managed by full-time Residence Directors (RDs), master’s level adults, who live in an apartment within each hall. They oversee the care and social aspect of the students who reside there, as well as lead educational programming teams in outside-the-classroom-learning opportunities for all students. Resident Assistants (RAs) are trained student leaders who reside on each floor to assist students and create an atmosphere of community and respect. Additionally, each hall has floor and hall event teams, who plan and implement activities to encourage relationships and growth.
From roommate relationships to hall traditions, your experiences can help you develop in ways you never imagined, all while being surrounded by a supportive community of like-minded believers to take this journey with you. Of course, the foundation of this tight-knit community is formed in the residence halls where new and returning students, from freshmen to seniors, experience life together. You can build relationships with others from around the state or around the world; friendships that will enrich your life and last a lifetime.
Evangel’s residence halls are all similar in structure and design, with double occupancy rooms. There is a shared bathroom between each set of two rooms so no more than four students share the facilities. The residence buildings are 3 to 4 stories tall, with 6 to 8 floors. We also offer free laundry machines in each residence hall. First floor lobbies are newly renovated and students use both first and second floor lobbies as their “living rooms.”
Residence hall living brings many opportunities for involvement with all kinds of floor and hall activities, as well as leadership possibilities. Students can get involved in weekly floor devotions in addition to other community outings. There are hundreds of opportunities to serve in leadership as resident assistants, discipleship leaders, discipleship administrators, or on hall and floor councils. Students also personalize their environments with mission-oriented themes and floor designs. We encourage you to visit our campus and check out our dorms!
