"I like the safety of the student housing and the convenience of living right next to the college and being able to walk to campus. Although I have a care, I usually use a bike to get around."
Ty Bernal - 2nd Degree Program Student from Peru, IL

"I like that I have my own bedroom, but still have roommates, along with a kitchen and living area. The fact that it came furnished saved me a lot of money. It's great to have the school right next door and Hy-Vee Grocery Store so close."
Ashley Dorethy - Bachelor of Science in Nursing Student from Springfield, il

Goals of Residence Life

The focus of residential living at Methodist College is to provide an environment conducive to lifelong learning, both in and outside of the classroom. In our student housing, students are exposed to a variety of educational and social programs, as well as activities that familiarize the residents with the diversity of lifestyles, backgrounds, and personalities of their peers. We strive to support the development of students in all facets of their lives while instilling the Methodist College values of human dignity, integrity, inquiry, and social justice.

Methodist College student housing is staffed by live-in Resident Advisors (RAs) who facilitate a safe and secure learning community through programming, education, and policy enforcement.
