The new residence hall will be located on the south end of the present Johnson and St. Clair residence halls and near the Johnson-Murdoch Tennis Complex.  

According to Rod Johnson, associate vice president of operations, the residence hall will house anywhere from 108-120 students. 

The building of this new dorm requires the relocation of the sand volleyball courts, providing an opportunity to add two additional volleyball courts, two basketball courts, and a small expansion of the nearby parking lot.  

The new residence hall will be built through the gifts of friends of the University and reallocated resources. The University will maintain its debt-free status, which Cedarville President Dr. Thomas White announced at the first chapel service this semester.  

“We are grateful to God for the continued increase he has given to Cedarville,” White said. “This new residence hall will help contribute to the life-transforming campus experience that is a part of the 1,000 days of every student the Lord brings to us.” 

Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited, Christ-centered, Baptist institution with an enrollment of 4,715 undergraduate, graduate, and online students in more than 150 areas of study. Founded in 1887, Cedarville is one of the largest private universities in Ohio, recognized nationally for its authentic Christian community, rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings, and high student engagement ranking.
