Housing Information

Residence Life

The residence hall community is designed to provide you with meaningful relationships and programming that will shape your educational experience at MBI. The Residence Life staff is committed to supporting you as you continue to develop mental, spiritual and social maturity. On each floor, there is a Resident Assistant (RA), a student selected to serve as a leader and resource person. A Resident Director (RD), who is a full-time professional, lives in each residence hall and supports the campus living experience.

By purposefully mixing majors, ages and academic years on each floor, our desire is that older students mentor younger students and that everyone develops healthy relational skills by daily interacting with people who have different perspectives. As Christians, we believe that living in community is one of the ways that God refines and develops our character.

Requesting Residence Preferences

All new single students will automatically be housed in one of our residence halls. You have the option of requesting your preferred roommate, residence hall, or floor. In addition, if you require any ADA accommodations, please request these at your earliest convenience. You may send your prefrences by submitting this form. Housing requests must be submitted by December 1st. In addition, if you require any ADA accommodations, please email Gayla Gates (ggates@moody.edu) at your earliest convenience.

We cannot always guarantee your request. The Residence Life staff will work hard to do so as space is available.

After housing is complete, you will receive information via email about how to view your room and roommate assignment on the My.Moody Student Portal (https://my.moody.edu). As part of your check-in during orientation, Residence Life will provide your room keys.

Married students are not required to live on campus. If you are interested in receiving more information regarding married housing on campus or an application, please contact Residence Life at (312) 329-4189 or email housing@moody.edu.
