Living on Campus

Houghton College is a distinctively residential community. Most students, faculty, and staff live, learn, work, and worship within close proximity to the hamlet of Houghton.

Such an intentional residential experience is a significant and integral part of the educational process. Living in the residences, together with classroom, chapel, and student activities, provides an immediate setting for students to examine new or different perspectives, ideas, and attitudes.

Simply put, time spent with others on campus will provide memories that endure for a lifetime.
