Moody Bible Institute has three housing facilities to accommodate its on-campus students. Culbertson hall provides accommodations for Undergraduate male students. Houghton hall and Smith hall (floors 4,5, and 6) provide accommodations for Undergraduate female students.
The residence hall community is designed to provide the student with meaningful relationships that will shape his or her character. Because of Moody’s commitment to community and mentoring, we have chosen to maintain a mix of majors, ages, and classes on each floor. We accomplish this by reserving approximately 25 percent of the rooms on each floor for new students.
Culbertson Hall (Culby)
Culbertson Hall houses male students in a 19-story building with three elevators and a large laundry facility in the basement. The second floor of Culby is home to Moody Central, a solutions-based service center for students. Moody Central includes the following departments: Academic Records, Career Development Center, Financial Aid, International Students Office, PCM/Field Education, Residence Life, Student Accounts and Student Life.
Floors 3–19 each house approximately 30 students and one Resident Assistant per floor in double occupancy rooms. Moody provides a twin bed, desk, chair and dresser for each student. Each floor has a lounge with a kitchenette, large community bathroom, and a community storage room. Culbertson Hall is air conditioned in the summer. 2 male Residence Directors live in an apartment on the 6th and 18th floor.
Houghton Hall houses women in a ten-story building with two elevators and a large laundry facility in the basement. On the first floor, there is a 24-hour computer lab complete with printer, two female Residence Director's offices and a large, comfortable seating area with a TV.
The second floor is divided between student housing and a general purpose room that features a fireplace, couches, lamps, two TVs, a large table for playing games and two prayer rooms. This space is occasionally used for student events. A female Residence Director lives in an apartment on the second floor.

There is one apartment on both Smith 6 and 7 that meets all ADA requirements. Each apartment has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, refrigerator and living room. Both floors also have a lounge, laundry room and storage rooms. The eighth floor of Smith has a female Residence Director’s apartment.
On-Campus Married Apartments
Married students interested in on-campus married housing may email email@example.com to request to be placed on a Smith Hall Married Apartment Waitlist. The Housing Office will then place them on the waitlist. When apartments become available, the Housing Office will contact the first married couple on the waitlist and extend an offer. Students are given a period of time to decide and respond with their acceptance or decline of the offer. If declined, the Housing Office will remove them from the waitlist and extend an offer to the next married couple on the waitlist. At the beginning of each academic year, the Housing Office will contact all married couples on the waitlist by Moody email to confirm if they would like to remain on the waitlist. If the Housing Office does not receive a response by the deadline given, the married couple will be removed from the waitlist.
