Campus LifeCommuter Students

home away from home

Commuter students are a valuable part of the MVNU community. Almost one quarter of our students live at home and commute daily to campus for classes.

We want you to feel every bit as comfortable and at home here as residential students. In fact, we have a spacious lounge just for commuters, so you have a home away from home on campus too.

Non-residential students are invited and encouraged to come enjoy campus events and get involved in clubs, campus ministries, intramurals, and all the other social opportunities MVNU has to offer.

The Commuter Lounge Features

  • Refrigerator
  • Microwave
  • Keurig
  • Study Tables
  • Storage Lockers

Residential Requirement

MVNU's Traditional campus has existed as a place where students come to both learn and live together in an environment of academic focus and biblical purpose. There is much value in living together in a Christian community, which is apparent in the social, spiritual, emotional, and academic development of MVNU students. To demonstrate a commitment to the residential experience, MVNU requires traditional students to reside in campus housing for the duration of their studies at MVNU. Students are approved to commute to campus if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • Living in the primary residence of a parent/legal guardian (within 60 miles from campus)
  • Taking less than 12 credit hours per semester
  • Legally married or the parent/guardian of a child
  • Age 23 or older prior to August 31 of that school year
