Housing & Meals

On-campus housing for graduate students

On campus housing in Messiah College residence halls is available for graduate students during summer intensive courses. (There is no on-campus housing available during the January intensive course.) All of our residence halls are air conditioned and have common lounge areas. Each building has laundry facilities located within the complex or the residence hall itself. The buildings are secured with a card-swipe lock and each room has an individual key lock. Each spring, pricing rates are established for the following year. If you are interested in staying on campus during your summer intensive, you must complete the graduate housing application. More information is available on our Graduate Summer Housing Fact Sheet.

During the January intensive courses, or for students who prefer to stay off campus, there are numerous hotel/lodging options nearby, many which offer discounts to Messiah College students and their families.  Please view our local lodging guide.

On-campus meals for graduate students

Messiah College’s Dining Services operates several dining venues from August to May.  During the summer months, Lottie Nelson Dining Hall, an all you care to eat facility, is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner and The Falcon is open Monday through Friday for breakfast and lunch. Specific hours of operation vary during the summer based on summer conferences and course schedules.   Please visit the Dining Services website for details and Dining information.  Students may pay cash or credit at the door or use Falcon Dollars.
