A thriving community of believers your own age—look forward to one of the most important and exciting aspects of BJU.
You’ve probably heard a funny story that started with “I had this roommate in college …” Now, it’s your turn to have roommates and to be a roommate. And let’s be honest: the relationships you form in college can impact you far greater than a project, test or paper ever will. So, come ready to learn and to give. Have reasonable expectations, and know you have a unity through Christ (Ephesians 4:2-7).
Residence hall life can be a profitable time of faith-building and fellowship with other believers. Your room will be joined with 2 or 3 other rooms to form a prayer group. Five nights a week, your prayer group will meet for a time of prayer-focused worship. The other nights, you and your roommates will have a time of prayer.
Don’t worry about living out of a suitcase. Your room will have lots of drawer space, closets and overhead bins for more storage. You’ll also find desks for your computer and shelves for textbooks. There are 5 residence halls for women and 5 for men. All residence halls are equipped with a prayer room, study lounge and vending room. Two men’s residence halls and all the women’s residence halls have laundry rooms. In addition, 3 residence halls have music rooms with pianos for practicing voice and instruments.
If you have questions about anything, you will find a supervisor and counselors in each residence hall. They care and are there to help and to offer friendship and spiritual counseling at any time.
Dining with friends is an integral part of your college experience. Whether it’s a quick bite on the go or a casual sit-down meal with your friends, BJU Dining Services makes it easy for you to refuel and reconnect.

Safety and Health
BJU’s Public Safety operates a 24/7 patrol and dispatch center in case of emergencies. Residence halls close at 10:30 p.m., and card access is required for all side entrances. In case of a major emergency, all students, faculty and staff will be notified via an emergency notification system. For medical concerns, University Health Services provides basic medical services for students.
Working on Campus
BJU’s Student Work Program enables you to earn up to $3,200 per year working 5 to 20 hours a week. The program gives priority to undergraduate students living in the residence halls. A limited number of work students may also qualify for the Federal Work-Study Program.
