D.Min. Housing

The Office of Housing welcomes Doctor of Ministry candidates to campus for the May D.Min intensive term (May 13-23, 2014)! We offer on-campus housing for those students traveling to campus from afar, or wishing to minimize commuting time to focus on coursework and utilize campus resources. 

Housing Applications

We will begin accepting applications on March 19, 2014 and the application window will close on April 6, 2014 at midnight.  Email confirmation of your housing assignment will be sent the week of April 14, 2014. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept late applications, except in the event of cancellation.  Students are encouraged to apply early because May term spots are extremely limited.

Students interested in applying for housing during the May intensive D.Min. terms should complete the application available online beginning March 19. For all students staying during the May term, check-in will be Monday, May 12, 2014 from 6-9pm.  For those students staying only during week two, check in will be Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 3-9pm. The check-out deadline is Saturday, May 24, 2014, 10:00am.


This term, we will likely be utilizing all available space on campus to accommodate our Doctor of Ministry students. While we plan to assign housing in the New Residence Hall (NRH), we also anticipate assigning housing in Straughn Dormitory.  Students will be able to indicate a hall preference on their application. If you are unfamiliar with Wesley housing, please take a moment to read about our residence halls and take a look at our floor plans.

During this term, we assign only one- or two-week accommodations.  We are unable to prorate if you check-in either late or early. Please note that there is a $50 cancellation fee for cancellations after the cancellation period (we will accept cancellations until April 25, 2014 at noon, EST without charging a fee).

Due to our limited housing, we will be unable to assign single rooms or apartments during the D.Min. term in January, except possibly in case of medical requirement.  If you have a medical reason why you would need a single room, you may be required to provide a letter from your physician.

Should applications exceed our on-campus vacancies, we may elect to make arrangements at a local hotel for Doctor of Ministry students. Cost would be determined when arrangements are made but would be more expensive than on-campus accommodations.

Housing Rates

All rates are weekly and include a Monday evening (or Sunday evening for week 2) check-in and a Saturday morning check-out. Students staying both weeks are not required to vacate or move between week 1 and week 2.  They do not include linen or meal plan.

New Residence Hall Double Occupancy - $400
Straughn Residence Hall Double Occupancy - $300
Linen Charge - $12

Linen includes two flat bedsheets, and one each: pillow case, blanket, bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth. You may elect to bring your own linen instead of having the seminary provide linen for you (however, please note the NRH is furnished with extra-long twin beds. Straughn is furnished with standard twin beds).
