Living on Campus - Housing Options

ACU is a safe, welcoming residential campus community offering amenities you’d expect at your home-away-from-home: quality dining options, access to fitness and wellness facilities, on-campus salon, iClean laundry and dry-cleaning service, countless activities to keep you busy after class, and lots of spaces to study and gather with friends. The lifeblood of a residential campus, though, is its housing -- small communities within our community. 

Housing Options: Independent Living

As a freshman and sophomore, you’ll call one of our dozen dormitories home, and upperclassmen may live in campus apartments. Residence halls and apartments are equipped with modern amenities (laundry, kitchens) and offer common spaces for socializing and studying.

Conversations on campus

More than a place to call home. 

Residence Life at ACU is more than just housing -- it’s also about building a community that encourages the collision of new ideas, student development, dialogue and personal growth. We take residential living and learning seriously: Residence Life Education and Housing at ACU demands that each member of its residential community be treated with respect, dignity, integrity and compassion, reflective of Christ's love. It is our mission that students will leave their residential community as developed individuals, confident in their relationship with God, their leadership call to the world, and able to mediate and solve conflict in a complex and diverse global community.

Ready to Be a Part?

We’re eager to see not only what you can accomplish with an ACU education, but how your unique perspective can enrich your fellow classmates and ACU as a whole.
