Students in residence hall

Campus Life

Student Experience

Gordon College consistently outperforms both the National 4-Year Private and CCCU averages in the widely used Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory for both overall satisfaction and conviction that students would enroll again if given the choice.

Residence Life

Gordon College is committed to the traditional liberal arts model and residential college experience. We believe that living in community in a residence hall can be one of the most transformative aspects of the college experience. Approximately 98% of students live on campus. The Residence Life staff is made up of RDs, RAs, and ACs seeking to glorify God through the cultivation of an intentional Christian community.

Students who are married, are 23 years of age or older, are living with relatives, have part-time status or are on a special program, are normally allowed to live off campus. All other students are required to live on campus unless granted special permission by the director of housing.
