One of the greatest experiences in college is living in a community. Residence hall living gives students the unique opportunity to live and interact with a variety of people. Students living in residence halls do better academically, are less likely to drop out, are more likely to graduate in four years, and are more likely to be involved in college activities and develop leadership skills. Thus, Westminster College regards the residential experience as an integral part of the education of a student.
Westminster College has 8 residential facilities: 6 residence halls, Thompson House, and Berlin Village that house approximately 1,130 students. The Director of Residence Life is responsible for supervising Residence Life staff, formulating residential policy, and overseeing programmatic efforts. The Director of Facility Operations is responsible for residence hall custodial services, building maintenance, and upkeep. It is a joint effort to provide an environment that is conducive to the personal development and education of each student.
