Living in student housing is a great way for Traditional Program students to get the full HC experience. You’ll create a lifelong network of friends in Christ as you share community and support each other through the unique rewards and challenges of ministry training.
Student housing is currently arranged through a corporate leasing agreement with nearby apartment complexes.
- Student Housing is available for Traditional Program students. Nearly 80% of students select this form of housing.
- Apartments are leased through a corporate agreement Highlands College has with conveniently located complexes.
- Two- or three-bedroom apartments are available. Two-bedroom apartments accommodate four students, and three-bedroom apartments accommodate six students.
- HC’s Student Housing Committee assigns roommates.
Housing costs vary according to number of bedrooms and assume six occupants for three-bedroom and four occupants for two-bedroom.
|Number of Bedrooms||Lease Terms||Cost|
|3||10 Months||$440 per occupant per month|
|2||10 Months||$500 per occupant per month|
|Each student is required to pay a $100 non-refundable housing application fee. Payments are due by the 1st of every month and a $100 late fee will be charged after the 5th of every month.|
Housing prices include a premium for utilities, including power, water, sewer, trash, and internet. If the apartment exceeds the allocated premium, then the students may be required to pay the additional amount.
Resident Assistants, or RAs, are trained peer leaders who help to create a supportive, Christ-like atmosphere for residential students. They plan activities for the hall, set the tone for a positive environment, enforce Housing Covenants, and ensure students have what they need to succeed at HC.
No pets of any kind are allowed.
Students may request their own room within a two or three bedroom unit but will be required to pay double the amount listed above.
Technically, no, but it’s not hard to find free or affordable furniture thanks to the HC community. Many students leave furniture for incoming students when they graduate. And, some incoming students will move into apartments that are home to returning students who already have some furnishings. This should not be a source of worry for incoming students. It’s your first exercise in working with others to get creative and problem-solve.
Yes. Should a student choose to withdraw or be dismissed due to disciplinary actions, fulfillment of the legally binding lease is required in accordance with its terms.
Every year, students sign the Highland College Community Covenant which contains the commitments and practices that all students abide by during their time as an HC student. This Covenant does contain practices as they relate to housing including:
- No alcohol or tobacco of any kind allowed
- No overnight stays with members of the opposite sex
- No disruptive gatherings that disturbs or impacts the peace of another
