About Our Residence Halls

Campbell Village

One of Bethany’s most in-demand housing areas, Campbell Village consists of apartment-style suites that offer many of the amenities of home.

The suites are designed for four students, each with their own bedroom. All bedrooms are furnished with a double bed, dresser, nightstand, mirror/closet, desk, and chair. Each suite contains two bathrooms with a sink, vanity, a bathtub/shower, and toilet. In each suite, students share a living area and kitchenette. Campbell Village suites contain central heating and air conditioning.

Campbell Village is made up of four separate buildings, all of which provide housing to nearly half of Bethany’s student population. Currently, Campbell Village provides housing to both freshmen and upperclassmen.

Each individual building is outfitted with laundry facilities, vending services, community lounge space and all are handicap accessible.

Cochran Hall

Cochran Hall serves as Bethany’s newest residence, housing over 70 students in its recently renovated modern suite-style rooms. Each suite accommodates two to six students. Within the suite, residents share common living space, a common bathroom and either single or double bedrooms.

One of Bethany’s historical buildings, the Hall was constructed in 1910. It was originally used as a men’s residence and later faculty offices with a guest apartment in the basement. The College celebrated Cochran’s reopening after an extensive $4.5 million renovation in fall 2010.

Conveniently situated, Bethany’s Thomas P. Johnson Jr. College Center – including Bethany House (Enrollment Management, Student Life, Renner Art Gallery, and the Department of Communications and Media Arts) and Benedum Commons – is just a short walk away.

Cochran Hall is fully accessible and features multiple laundry facilities and central air conditioning.

Goodnight House

Goodnight House is a two-story residence hall designed to promote community living. Residents live in cubes consisting of four bedrooms and a common bathroom. Each bedroom contains two single beds, dressers, closet space and desks with chairs.

Goodnight features two large lounge spaces with a television located on the upper level. The residence is also equipped with a common kitchen and laundry facility.

Located between Campbell Village and Greek housing, Goodnight was named in honor of Cloyd Goodnight who served as president of the College from 1919-1932.

Phillips Hall

Phillips Hall provides residential living for females seeking a traditional all-female residence hall experience. Located in the center section of campus it houses over 100 Bethany students in bedrooms complete with two single beds, dressers, closet space and a desk with a chair. Bathrooms and showers are located on each floor for community use.

In addition to residential rooms, Phillips Hall is also home to student programming space in Renner Too and Maxwell’s where the College holds a variety of Campus events. It also features a large lounge where students often gather.

The hall was completed in 1929 and replaced the original Phillips Hall, which was a gift from Thomas W. Phillips.

Harlan Hall

Ivabell Harlan Hall is our honors hall, located in the center section of campus. Harlan provides residential living for our newly established Honors College. Students accepted into the Honor’s program will enjoy this building that is well-suited for a traditional housing experience during their undergraduate career.

Students residing in Harlan Hall live in single bedrooms equipped with a single bed, dresser, closet space, and a desk with chair as well as an A/C unit. Shared bathroom facilities are located on each floor.

The hall also has two student academic lounge spaces on the lower level. There, students can gather for studying, games and conversation.

Harlan Hall was constructed in 1960 and was made possible by a gift from C. Allen Harlan.
