Residence and Community Life
College is much more than a pursuit of information and getting a diploma. It is an opportunity for personal and relational growth as you are challenged to form deeper relationships, develop life skills, and most importantly, find the answer to one of life’s biggest questions: “Who am I”?
While this process of growth can happen through different college experiences, you will probably experience it most intensely through Residence Life. So think about living on campus!
We offer comfortable, well-maintained campus housing at Schaal Hall, Timmer Hall, Holt Apartment, and the Life Together Living and Learning Community. Schaal and Timmer Halls are accessible buildings. A trained Residence Life staff member lives on campus among students seeking to engage them socially, spiritually, emotionally and academically.
All residential students are required to take part in our KuyperWorks program, an educationally focused work program here at Kuyper College.
Timmer and Schaal Residence Halls
The traditional halls at Kuyper are set up into a series of suites—every two living areas share one bathroom. Each living area is equipped with two desks, two bookshelves and two beds, all of which are stackable. In addition, each living area has a large closet area with two sets of drawers for storage.

Community amenities in the residence halls include a common kitchen area for cooking, a computer lab and printer and free laundry facilities.
There is also a lounge in each of the buildings where students are free to study or hang out. The lounge is equipped with cable TV.
The Holt Apartments are reserved for upperclassmen and older students. Each apartment has two bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom, a kitchen and can house up to five people. There is also a laundry room in the building—laundry is free for on-campus students.

Apply for Housing
Housing applications received by May 1 (for Fall Semester) and December 15 (for Winter Semester) will be given priority roommate pairing. Housing applications will be accepted following the priority deadline until housing is full.
In addition to your application, we also request that you include a housing deposit to hold your room/apartment on campus. The housing application fee is $200, which is refundable once you move out of the residence halls.
If you have questions regarding Kuyper's housing, please contact Resident Director Mike McCarty.
