Room and Board fees include meal plans. All students who live in residence halls are required to participate in a meal plan. Meal plans can be used in the Dining Hall or Founders’ Café. The Dining Hall includes an entrée buffet, a made-to-order grill, a rotisserie, and a soups, salads, and subs bar. Founders’ offers a wide selection of drinks, sandwiches, wraps, and snacks and is conveniently located to serve your needs in between classes.
The theological training in the classroom is complemented and demonstrated by the relational refinement of the residential community.
The typical suite in the newly-renovated complex houses 2 – 6 occupants, and most suites include a common kitchenette and dining area, lounge and TV space, and a full bathroom.
Fuller Hall offers additional housing to male and female students of Boyce College.
Carver Hall offers single and multiple (2 – 3 students) occupancy rooms for single male students of Southern Seminary and Boyce College.
A comfortable gathering area for students and their friends.
This public lounge area includes several great places to study or hang out, including kitchens, meeting rooms, a concert venue, and more.
Campus housing is required for students below the age of 22 in order to provide a holistic college education involving both the classroom and the community. A blend of relationships, events, activities, programs, service opportunities, and unstructured time together fosters a dynamic community that complements and completes the education gained in the classroom.
Meal plans are required for three primary reasons. First, residential communities must provide regular, structured meals with predictable numbers of attendees. Second, food service contracts for campuses require that a guaranteed number of students eat in the cafeteria. And finally, both Scripture and society show that tight-knit communities and deep friendships are formed and maintained through eating together. We recognize that some students have unique situations, and we have clear policies and procedures to evaluate potential exemptions.
There are three exceptions to the Boyce on-campus requirement:
- Students who are married
- Students who are 22 years old as of the first day of classes
- Students who are both part-time (enrolled in less than 12 credit hours) and upperclassmen (Completed 63 credit hours by the first day of class) for the entire semester
Students desiring to move off campus but not meeting one of the above requirements must submit a Residential Exemption Request Form every semester. Please note that students who plan to live with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must still complete a Residential Exemption Request Form every semester by July 1 (for fall semester) and by December 1 (for spring semester). If denied, the student must live in the on-campus residence halls.
Students approved to live off-campus based on part-time student status must remain part-time for the entire semester for which they are approved. Students who violate the residential requirement will face disciplinary action (reprimand, probation, or withdrawal), pay a monetary fine, and be required to move on-campus or forfeit their student status.
