Housing & Dining
Living at Bethany
For the next four years of your life, Bethany will be your home. So our goal is to provide you with a safe, comfortable, and attractive environment that you’ll thrive in, surrounded by friends and the entire Bethany community.
Bethany provides on-campus housing for approximately 800 students. Our residence halls promote an atmosphere of learning, personal growth, and the development of student relationships in an environment that is both safe and secure.
The student dining experience has been specifically designed to meet your needs. We are passionate about providing authentic food and flavors that are handcrafted and personally designed by our chefs for our guests.
We are excited to offer different dining options, including our newly remodeled all-you-can-eat Ogden Dining Hall and The HUB, which contains Starbucks coffee and prepared food markets.
Living Environments for All Interests
We have co-ed residences, all male and all female residences with many of the amenities you have at home. Our goal is to foster 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.
Ivabell Harlan Hall is Bethany’s exclusive, newly renovated Residence Hall, with renovations being completed for the Fall 2023 semester. Located in the center of main campus, Harlan provides a traditional College residential experience for first-year students.
Harlan is the closest residence hall to first-year parking and to all academic buildings!
Students in Harlan will have single, double, or triple rooms depending on availability. Each room is equipped with twin-sized beds, closet space, and desks with chairs. Shared bathroom facilities are located on each floor. The Harlan building itself is a co-ed building. However, each floor remains single-sex.
Harlan also has a student academic lounge space on the lower level. There, students can gather for studying, games and conversation.
Cochran Hall serves as one of Bethany’s newest residence halls, 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. The College celebrated Cochran’s reopening after an extensive $4.5 million renovation in Fall 2010.
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 is the closest residence hall to the Ogden Dining Hall and has an elevator.
GOODNIGHT HOUSE & WOOLERY HOUSE
Goodnight House and Woolery House are two-story residence halls designed to promote community living. For the 2023-2024 academic year, Goodnight House will act as a co-ed building, while Woolery will provide a home exclusively for male and male-identifying students.
Residents live in cube-style housing, consisting of four bedrooms and a common bathroom. Each bedroom contains two single beds, dressers, closet space, and desks with chairs.
Both halls feature two large lounge spaces, a common kitchen, and laundry facilities.
Campbell Village is the foremost residence hall for returning, upperclass students. This residence hall is the furthest from main campus, but provides many of the amenities of home.
Campbell Village (CV) offers apartment-style suites 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.
Phillips Hall is our historic, traditionally all-female residence hall. Today, Phillips is used primarily as a student and College programming space in Renner Too and Maxwell’s. It also features a large lounge where students, faculty, and staff often gather.
The hall was completed in 1929 and replaced the original Phillips Hall, which was a gift from Thomas W. Phillips.
Parkinson Hill is home of six separate buildings, which house the majority of the Bethany College Greek organizations throughout the school year and are only available in the summer months. Each building has 16 rooms, each containing 2 twin, lofted beds, 2 desks, 2 dressers, and closet space. Each building includes 2 lounge areas with a kitchen area equipped with a full-sized refrigerator and stove, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.
