The Residence Hall Program
The program exists to foster a strong spirit of community throughout its fifteen Halls. This program fulfills the commitments and purposes of the College in these areas:
- social responsibility
- interracial living
- academic pursuits
- social interaction
- spiritual growth and
- individual development.
It provides opportunities for:
- exploration of values and
- development of lasting friendships.
Berea College offers variety in Residence Hall living. The fourteen Residence Halls vary in architecture, size, room arrangement and traditions.
In the majority of the halls, double or single rooms open onto conventional hallways. Three of the halls — Danforth, James and Kettering — accommodate groups living in suites. Residents here can take part in a family-type living experience.
The Residence Hall experience is an important component of a Berea College education. The Collegium supports the academic mission by providing environments that promote good study habits.
