residence life - housing

Residence halls on the Central Christian College campus are designed for small group living. Stoll Hall (1927), Parsons Hall (1965), Gillespie Hall (1980), and Kline Hall (1992) are designed to house 300 students and include lounges, visitation areas, recreation areas, and resident directors apartments. Married student housing can accommodate 10 couples.

The dorm rooms are furnished with a bed, personal storage facilities, and desks. Students should bring their own linens and mattress pads. Quilts, blankets, rugs, pillows, study lamps, wastebaskets, etc. are not supplied. It may be good to include your roommate in the planning for bedspreads and drapes. This can be done after you arrive on campus and have a chance to talk over preferences.

The only requirement we have regarding students bringing refrigerators is that they must be 3.8 cubic feet or smaller.  Televisions do not require specific approval. Cable television and VCRs are available in the lounges. Unfortunately, due to regulations by the fire marshall, microwaves are not allowed in the dorm rooms however, each residence hall has a microwave available for student use.

There are coin-operated washers and dryers in the residence halls. There are also several laundromats in McPherson. Ironing boards and drying rack are supplied, but irons are not. Storage space for labeled trunks and suitcases is also provided.
