Housing & Residence Life

Housing & Residence Life LogoWe have found, and no doubt you will, value from the unique experiences that residence hall living provides. Our staff recognizes that residence hall living is an intregral part of the educational process.

Whether you live in a traditional hall or suite, our commitment is to provide you with a healthy, clean and safe environment.

One of the major purposes of the Division of Student Affairs is to aid students in making their time at Methodist a valuable developmental experience. The residence halls provide a structured environment for students to live, work and grow together while gaining from experiences that unite them. Research has proven that students who live in the residence halls are more likely to achieve a higher grade point average, complete their degree in four years, participate in more extracurricular activities, have a positive self image and go on to attend graduate school.

Three Year Residency

It is the policy of the University that, space permitting, all students who have earned 93 hours or less must live in University-operated residence halls unless they commute from the home of a parent or legal guardian. A local resident is defined as a person residing within 60 miles of the University. All requests for waivers of the policy must be directed in writing to the Director of Housing and Residence Life.

Our residence hall staff is here to provide information, counseling and programming for residents. By choosing to live in the residence halls, you will be at the center of campus activity, close to classes and dining facilities, and right in the midst of many social activities!

Living on campus is convenient, affordable, and fun!
