Residence Halls

Jenkins HallMoody Bible Institute has five housing facilities to accommodate its on-campus students. Culbertson provides accommodations for Undergraduate male students. Houghton and Smith halls provide accommodations for Undergraduate female students. Jenkins Hall provides accommodations for Seminary students and married students. Some Undergraduate students who meet certain qualifications also live in Jenkins.

Halls_2The 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.
