North Townhouses Occupancy sm

The Townhouses are two story, apartment style buildings with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Common areas in the Townhouses include a full-sized kitchen, living room, and a washer/dryer area. The North Townhouse Resident Director office is located on the east end of the North Townhouses.

Just south of the last townhouse is the Shepherd House, which now serves as the Community Center for the North Townhouses. A place for residents to study, gather, and fellowship, the Shepherd House includes a kitchen, conference room, television viewing seating area, ping-pong table, and a contemplative prayer space.


A residential community where young men will have the opportunity to discover and explore their authentic identity (vocational, service, masculinity, etc.) and learn more deeply how to love God, love others, and love self.

'I am called to help people grow holistically. I am honored to be able to fulfill this calling here on IWU's campus through the Residence Life program.'


I am passionate about developing people, helping others grow in their walk with Christ. In high school and early college I had wanted to be a youth pastor. While obtaining my M.A. degree I came to the conclusion that Residence Life was the best opportunity to minister to and mentor people. Upon graduating I applied at IWU. My wife and I moved here from sunny Southern California in July 2007.

Community Outreach

The Townhouses hold an annual "Good Hood Block Party" with the Marion community every spring. The event will feature live music, catered food, and prize give-aways. For children, it will feature face painting, yard games, and more! The Block Party is free to the public and all IWU students, faculty, and staff.


Building History

The Townhouses were originally built in 1998 to offer a different option in residential housing, acclimating students to more responsibility and independence. The Townhouses work to foster community both internally between residents and externally with our Marion neighbors.
