Residence Life

Concordia College has four residence halls on campus and two student houses that are off-campus. They are safe and secure, with Resident Assistants always on hand for answers to questions, to provide support, and keep you up-to-date on information on student activities and other important campus issues.

The residence halls at Concordia provide rich living-learning environments where students have the opportunity to share their collegiate experiences with peers. Students study, relax, learn, and develop friendships through the supportive communities that are formed.

Bohm Hall and Sieker Hall:

“Corridor style” arrangements where students share bathrooms in the center of each floor. Both are single-sex buildings that house women and men respectively.

Rippe Hall  and Romoser Hall:

“Section style” arrangements where students share bathrooms within a section of 10 rooms. Romoser houses men and upper-class women separated by floor and section. Rippe houses upper-class women and is also the location of our First-Year Learning Community consisting of first-year men and women separated by section.

Ressmeyer Hall:

This historic house functions as The Campus Christian Ministries Center. The mission of this house is to serve the community by hosting spiritual events (i.e. Table Talks, Bible studies), sponsor campus-wide service learning projects, and assist Concordia Clubs and Activities in implementing and executing various serving learning projects.

Koepchen Hall:

This historic house is designed to give students in our Nursing and Masters programs the opportunity to live on campus in pre-professional communities separate from the traditional undergraduate population. This home provides non-traditional students with a quiet environment to focus on their studies.

First-Year Learning Community

The First-Year Learning Community at Concordia College provides an opportunity for incoming first-year students to join a residential community that supports their academic success and transition to college life. Through research and our own experience, we know that students who participate in learning communities are more likely to have higher grades, to find opportunities to interact with faculty, to get involved in campus activities and events, and to report greater satisfaction with their overall college experience. This is because the learning community allows students to live and learn in an environment designed specifically for success on campus and beyond. Students in the learning community live together in the same residence hall (men and women are separated by floors and sections) and take the First-Year Seminar class together.  Members of the First-Year Learning community host and plan various service learning projects as well as social events. They also are given opportunities to meet faculty and to learn outside of the classroom by attending various academic events. Through these various activities, students gain leadership skills that will help throughout college and beyond.
