Are you an Incoming Readmit, First-Time Freshman, or Transfer Student for Fall 2013?
We are so excited to welcome you to Biola University Undergraduate Housing!
We are so glad that you chosen Biola and are excited you have the opportunity to live on campus. We believe that living in a residence hall on campus has many benefits beyond just how close it puts you to class. You are living with peers, learning from each other, and having opportunities to experience close Christian community in ways most people don't have.
The department of Residence Life develops students relationally by directing conversations, creating programs, and providing resources, so that they are able to authentically and lovingly engage their neighbor. Our residence halls are staffed by student and professional staff. These full time, live-in, professionals are here help students as they engage their community. We hope that you will take many memories you form and lessons you learn with you as you leave Biola and engage God's world for his glory.
