Housing and Meals


Graduate students in residential programs have several options for housing.

Residence Halls

Students who are under 23 may live in one of the University’s residence halls. (Students 23 and older may request permission to live in a residence hall, but students over 25 may not live in a residence hall.) Residence Hall costs.

Contact Brad Smith, Dean of Men, at to inquire about living in a residence hall.


On-campus townhouses are available for graduate students who apply in groups of six students. Applications for townhouses are due March 15. Townhouse costs.

Off-campus Housing

Students age of 23 and above are automatically allowed to live off campus. Rental units are available within the village of Cedarville and in neighboring cities.

Graduate students who live in the residence halls will choose one of the University’s meal plans.

Students who live in the Townhouses or off campus may purchase a commuter meal plan or purchase flex dollars that can be used at any campus dining option.

There are several dining options available on campus. All are part of the meals plans, or you can purchase your meals with cash, debit, or credit.

  • The dining hall located in the Stevens Student Center (SSC) serves cafeteria-style meals. Graduate students pay the reduced faculty/staff rate ($3.25-$4.25).
  • Stinger's is a short-order restaurant located on the lower level of the Stevens Student Center (SSC).
  • Chick-fil-A and Tossed (salads and pizza) are located next to the Centennial Library.
  • Rinnova is a coffee shop located right outside Stinger's on the lower level of the Stevens Student Center (SSC).

Computer Access and CedarNet

Each residence hall room is equipped with a networked computer enabling students to use CedarNet, the University's intranet. CedarNet provides access to over 150 commercial software packages, extensive online library resources, and high-speed internet. Please familiarize yourself with the CedarNet Acceptable Use Policy.
