Welcome Home

Where you live is your home; the residence hall you move into at Central will become your home away from home. Your roommate will become like family. The resident directors are not parents, but rather adult friends who carry a certain responsibility for your well-being.  Over 85% of Central's traditional students live on-campus.  Living on campus provides a rich and meaningful experience as students strive to live in community with one another.  Each residence hall as a unique feel and influence as student grow together through campus activities that occur as a part of the residential program.  Each week you can expect that something is happening on your wing or in your building, so jump in and make a life-long connection!

Here to Assist

The Resident Director  (RD) will be available to help students while they become accustomed to dorm life. The RD's role is to put students in touch with the privileges and responsibilities which are theirs and about which they might be in doubt.  They also minister to the needs in their dorm and are involved in student care.

For the safety of our students, all residents have an intrusion security system in place. At 12:00 midnight Sunday through Thursday and 1:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, all residence hall doors are locked and the security system armed.  First semester Freshmen only have "time in" at these times. This is part of our success studies program.  Students are encouraged to sign-up for TIGER ALERTS to receive emergency notifications right on your cell phone.  You can sign-up for Tiger Alerts through the I.T. department.  For evacuation and shelter locations click here.  

Residential Living

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 4.4 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.
