Living on campus in a residence hall is one of the most influential parts of your Cedarville experience. More than 80 percent of our undergraduate students live on campus. The remaining percentage includes students who live locally and commute from home, juniors and seniors who receive special permission to live off campus, and students over the age of 25.
Leadership is provided to each residence hall by the residence hall staff that includes a full-time staff member who serves as a resident director (RD) and student resident assistants (RA). These residence life staff members serve as role models and provide a sense of accountability to the lifestyle standards of the University. They are responsible for maintaining an atmosphere that supports success and is conducive to spiritual, academic, and social growth.
In addition to the Cedarville Covenant and the Community Lifestyle Guidelines, students who live on campus are responsible to abide by the Residence Hall Guidelines, which help create the desired atmosphere for student growth and success.
Living on campus provides an environment to help you internalize Cedarville's core values. The conversations that flow from living together allow students to apply the principles of loving God and others. Our desire is that your experiences outside of the classroom help to shape the way you think about and live out the Gospel in your everyday life.
