Living on campus helps Messiah students develop connections between faith, learning, and living. In our residence halls and campus apartments, we provide quality facilities and programs conducive to academic success, personal growth, and spiritual formation. Residence Life professionals serve as mentors and educators. Peer support is provided through student Resident Assistants and Assistant Residence Directors, as well as through Life Groups.
Residence Life handles housing issues. It may be beneficial for you to bookmark this page to have access to the most up-to-date information that we post related to housing, including important deadlines, policies and procedures, and forms.
Cell Phone RecommendationFor our location, it is strongly recommended that students use AT&T or Verizon Wireless as their wireless phone provider. There are two reasons: 1) They have the best signal on campus overall; Verizon is edging AT&T at the moment and 2) Our efforts to boost signal levels only do so for AT&T and Verizon. We see an increasing rate of complaints from those using carriers with poor cell service on campus (T-Mobile, Sprint, and others).
