D.Min. Housing

The Office of Housing welcomes Doctor of Ministry candidates to campus for the January D.Min intensive term (Jan. 3-15, 2016)! 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 October 19, 2015 and the application window will close November 9, 2015 at 11:59pm EST.  Email confirmation of your housing assignment will be sent no later than early December 2015. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept late applications, except in the event of cancellation.  Students are encouraged to apply early because January term spots are extremely limited.

Students interested in applying for housing during the Jan. intensive D.Min. terms should complete the application available online beginning in Monday, October 19, 2015. For all students staying during the Jan. term, check-in will be Sunday, January 3, 2016 from 2:00-4:30 PM.  For those students staying only during week two, check in will be Sunday, January 10, 2016 from 2:00-4:30 PM. The check-out deadline is Saturday, January 16, 2016, 10am.


We will utilize all available space on campus to accommodate our Doctor of Ministry students once the New Residence Hall (NRH) is at capacity. Students will be able to indicate a hall preference on their application in the event that placements are made outside the NRH (some students may prefer Straughn Dormitory for financial reasons). 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 December 18, 2015 at 4:30pm, EST without charging a fee).

Due to our limited housing, we are unlikely to be able to assign single rooms, except possibly in case of medical requirement.  If you have a medical reason why you would need a single room, you will 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 (week 1) or Sunday (week 2) afternoon 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.  Rates do not include linen or meal plan.

New Residence Hall Double Occupancy - $433
Straughn Residence Hall Double Occupancy - $380
Linen Charge - $12

Linen includes bedsheets, pillow, 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).

More information about your campus visit can be found in the Campus Guidebook - DMin Edition.
