Arrange Housing


Residence Life does not just exist as a place for students to sleep. There is so much more to residence life. The educational experience is the reason why students are on campus, but Residence Life is a co-partner in the educational enterprise. It is its own unique classroom in many ways. Residence staff and leadership facilitate an environment that enhances the learning experience and spiritual formation of students. Education does not stop when the class period ends. Rather, residents find themselves in the midst of a learning community.

Mature Student Housing

Providence offers a limited number of private apartments and community living options for mature students, couples, and families in need of on-campus housing. Students interested in living in mature student housing should connect with the Executive Assistant for Student Life after their acceptance into Providence to inquire about availability.

There are also off-campus opportunities to rent or buy houses, mobile homes, and apartments in the communities surrounding Providence. Students who choose to live off-campus will need to commute to Providence for classes. There is no public transportation to Providence and therefore students will need to purchase a vehicle or arrange carpooling. See Commuter Services for more information. 

In an effort to ensure that we can provide adequate space for our returning students, and to provide an accurate count of rooms available for new students, we offer a room reservation system.

New Students

If you are planning on living in residence as a first year student, please fill out the 'New Student Residence Application' and submit your $150 damage deposit. These two things will secure your placement in residence. If you have any questions, or need help with the application, do not hesitate to contact your Enrollment Officer.

Returning Students

Returning students who desire to live in residence must fill out a Returning Student Residence Form. Additionally, each returning student is responsible for ensuring that your $150 damage deposit is still on your student account. This can be done by checking your Populi account or by contacting the Business Office. There is no deadline for returning students to take these steps, however students will not be able to return to residence until both of these steps have been completed and confirmed. Students who choose to withdraw their application for residence will forfeit their damage deposit.

See Moving In for further details.
