Residence Life Facilities

Back

At Bryn Athyn College, our residence facilities make campus life comfortable and provide opportunities for a wide range of activities—open mic and karaoke nights, movie nights, Guitar Hero and Wii competitions, sand volleyball tournaments, and group study sessions.First-year students live in our residence halls, Grant Hall and Childs Hall. Our Residence Suites provide modern apartment-style residences for second- and third-year students, while our beautiful Residence Cottages, with their cathedral-ceilings and spacious living rooms, are reserved for fourth-year students.

Residence Halls

Childs Hall, the largest residence hall on campus, houses 45 students in a combination of double and single rooms. Recent renovations to the downstairs lounges and entrance area provide an attractive space for student social events. A music room offers students an area for creative outlet. Kitchen facilities as well as a laundry room are available for student use. Just outside of Childs Hall, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts and a student-built gazebo form a center for college social life.
Grant Hall provides housing for 39 women. Eight single-occupancy rooms are available to second year and above students in the east wing.
