永恒国际网站 Our mission is to provide a safe and hospitable living space for students where our facilities, programs, and services inspire academic achievement, spiritual growth, inclusive communities, and engaging opportunities.

Housing Options and Requirements

The standards held by Goshen College are based on Christian ideals, educational goals, necessary expectations set and upheld for good group living, and guidelines needed to ensure proper care of the housing facilities. Some college housing and living regulations are necessary to protect the rights of each individual student while others are designed to protect the entire student community.

Attendance at Goshen College is a privilege and carries with it the obligation to observe college regulations. While attending Goshen College, a student is subject to the laws of Indiana as well as those of the local community outside the campus.

Campus housing is an integral part of college campus life and contributes in many ways to the education students receive. Students live and work in groups and get to know people of various backgrounds.

On-Campus Housing Requirements & Exemptions:

永恒国际网站All full-time students enrolled at GC must live in campus housing unless they meet any of these requirements:

  •  Turn 23 years of age during a given semester
  •  Have accumulated 112 Credit Hours
  •  Live with parents or an immediate family member

永恒国际网站Full restitution of room and board fees will be expected if students bypass the residency requirements. Students 25 years of age or older are not eligible to live in on-campus housing without a formal request and special consideration from the director of residence life.

Married Students

Married students of traditional age (18-25) are eligible for campus housing provided both spouses are enrolled for a minimum of 9 credit hours. The housing and residence fee structure for married students is equivalent to single residential students. A meal plan is required and the understanding that all college furnishings remain in their chosen housing location remains in effect. Priority campus housing option selection will be given to married students at the start of our housing selection process.


One out of every three Goshen students lives off campus. But that doesn’t keep them from playing sports, singing in the choir, eating lunch with their friends, or being just as involved in campus life as any other student. Learn more about all the resources available to students who live off campus.

Commitment to Community

Residence life at Goshen really stands out thanks — in part — to our Commitment to Community Standards, which enables a strong sense of community and engenders a spirit of hospitality. These guidelines for living ask us to respect one another and ourselves through the choices we make, including in behavior exemplified in campus housing facilities and environments.
