Residence Life Facilities

At Bryn Athyn College, our residence facilities make campus life comfortable and homey for each individual, as well as provide venues for a wide range of group activities—including open mic and karaoke nights, movie nights, Guitar Hero and Wii sports 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.
