New Resident Application Form

Tyndale recognizes the vital role residence plays for students ages 17-23.  Residence offers a first step in independent living for students who have just moved out of their parents' home.  The intentional community, the Residence Team structure, and the location provide a space for young students to explore their own living styles and taking on the responsibilities of living on their own.

The environment of group living is structured for young adults.  The residence handbook, programming, and structures are set in place to help build on the students ability to live successful on their own.  The safe environment of residence is a space that is optimum for students and keeps parents apprehensions at bay because they know there is a certain level of structure set in place.

Due to this structure of Tyndale's residence, priority is given to residents that are full-time between the ages of 17-23.  Residence is an integral part of campus life and contributes in part, to the education our students receive.

Quiet Hall Option:

There are 2 types of halls in our residence.  We have our regular halls and 2 quiet halls, on female and one male.  The quiet halls are designed for people that not only need a quiet room, but also their surrounding environment.

The quiet halls are expected to be quiet throughout the day, not just during the designated quiet hours, which are from 10pm - 10am (9pm-10am during exam weeks).

Students that do not respect this environment while living in the hall may be asked to move to a different dorm to ensure that the quiet dorm atmosphere is respected.
