Residence hall living provides unique opportunities for personal growth as well as many small group experiences that compliment and support the mission of the college. Research demonstrates that living in residency has a significant impact on a student's college experience. In comparison to their commuting classmates, resident students on average are more satisfied with college life, less likely to drop out, more likely to participate in student and recreational activities, and have more interaction with other students, faculty, and staff. All students who are enrolled at Manhattan Christian College are required to live in the residence halls for the first two years of enrollment unless they are married, 21 years old, have been in college for two years, or have parents who reside within the city (in this case, students must live in their parent's house); and they are to live only in college-approved housing. Junior and senior students may elect to live in off-campus housing other than the residence halls. Students residing in the residence halls must pay all fees. Non-degree students may live in the residence halls if space is available and they are enrolled in at least six hours; however, all College policies must be adhered to. All students who live in the residence halls are required to take a minimum of six hours. Up-keep of the individual rooms and public-use areas is the student's responsibility. MCC currently has three residence halls: Johnson Hall for men, Kenoyer Hall for women and Rebekah House for over-flow sophomore housing. All residence halls have a lobby, laundry facilities, and wireless internet service. Each bedroom is equipped with a desk, chair, twin bunk beds, closet, dresser, and phone jack.
