The college provides on-campus housing for approximately 800 students. The goal of the Residence Life at Bethany College is to provide our students with an atmosphere that fosters a sense of learning and growth, while offering an environment that is both safe and secure. Additionally, it is our aim to promote campus involvement and the development of student relationships.
 
Staffing
Each of the residence halls are staffed with Resident Assistants, or RAs. RAs are upper-class students at Bethany College selected on the basis of their campus leadership skills and experiences, character, and the ability to relate well with others. They are the front line for the Coordinator of Residence Life and the Office of Student Affairs. They serve as a resource for other students as well as role models, provide educational and social programming for their residents, and perform nightly rounds in the residence halls.

The Director of Residence Life is a full time professional staff member who lives in Campbell Village and is responsible for the day to day supervision and operations of Bethany College's residential communities.

Residence Life can be contacted by phone at 304-829-7631 or by contacting the Director by email at alewis@bethanywv.edu.
 
Residential Facilities and Access Policies
Access to residence areas is limited to residents and their escorted guests. All residents are issued a key or key card for personal access. A resident must accompany all guests entering a residence hall. More information on residence options, roommates, and policies and procedures is described in the Student Handbook which is available in the Office of Student Affairs and on the web at the Student Handbook.
