Scripture Hall Occupancy

Favored for its prime campus location and spacious suites, Scripture Hall hosts up to 250 sophomore through senior men. Designated as a "transitional area," Scripture Hall's nontraditional layout, intentional programming, and Themed Housing Initiative offer its residents a unique experience as they transition from freshman halls into upper-class apartments.

Through its Themed Housing Initiative, residents of Scripture Hall engage common conversations, experiences, and programs as specified by each unit's theme. Themes for 2013-14 will be "Discipleship: Faith and Life," "Creative Expression," "Global Citizenship," and "Healthy Living."

'I am burdened by the need for young men to know and embrace all that God has called them to be…'

Although originally from the Pacific Northwest, my wife and I settled into Scripture Hall in 2012. Having previously worked in college student success, missions, and youth ministry, I'm thrilled to serve here as Resident Director. It's a huge honor to have the opportunity to guide and serve the young men of this community during such a transformational time of life.

Community Outreach

In recent years, Scripture Hall has engaged in community development with the Salvation Army, mentoring with the Boys & Girls Club of Marion, and disaster relief in NYC with Poured Out.

Building History


Located at the center of IWU's campus - less than a five-minute walk to any classroom - is Scripture Hall. The largest residence hall on campus, it was built in 2001 and houses men, mostly upperclassmen. This innovative four-story structure was designed to foster community among students, boasting clusters of rooms and shared living areas.
