While living in community at Eastern University, you are likely to meet people who are different than you. Eastern University, as stated in our mission, seeks to " treat each member of the campus community with fairness, dignity, and respect, seeking a spirit of unity and harmony as we join together to achieve our common mission."  As such, Eastern University is committed to welcoming and housing all admitted undergraduate students and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, physical or mental ability, or sexual orientation, with the goal of "fostering an environment where diversity is appreciated and reconciliation is practiced." Eastern University housing assignments and roommate placements are based on information submitted in the Housing Preferences Form. Questions regarding housing assignments and roommate placements will be addressed through the Housing Coordinator and the Office for Student Development. Questions and requests will be handled with sensitivity and an ethic of care.

University Housing refers to any Housing managed by Eastern University’s Office of Student Development. This includes Housing located on the St. David’s campus and The Village Apartments.

Living with other students is an exciting and challenging experience. Not only tolerance but also an understanding of people from very diverse backgrounds can be an enriching and growth experience and learning that Christians do not all think and behave the same way can be enlightening. Residence Life affects a personal growth that occurs within community living and leads to a more successful and adjusted adult life.
