- The purpose of the Christian Campus House/Fellowship
- The ultimate purpose of the Christian Campus Fellowship is to glorify God and proclaim the gospel. One way CCF accomplishes this is by providing a Christian atmosphere in which students can live, study, and grow spiritually while attending Missouri S&T. Any student who professes a belief in the one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, or expresses an interest in accepting Him as their personal Savior, will be considered for residence in the Christian Campus House.
- Application and Rent Procedures and Information
- Application to the Christian Campus House may be made in person or online. All applicants must be a current Missouri S&T student by the move in date.
- Once the application has been received and processed, every effort should be made by the applicant to visit the campus house and to participate in an informal personal interview with the campus minister(s).
- Applicants will be notified on or around May 1st or December 1st prior to the semester for which they are seeking housing, as to whether or not they have been selected to live in the Christian Campus House.
- Upon selection, the applicant will receive a housing contract in the mail which should be filled out and returned along with a $300 deposit. The deposit will be returned upon vacating the house provided the room passes check-out inspections and procedures, no damage has been sustained due to actions during residency, no fines or payments are outstanding, and keys are returned.
- Rent payment options, due dates, late charges, and penalties for non-payment are outlined in the
Christian Campus House housing contract. Rent charged to Men's House residents includes housing,
utilities, use of kitchen and all other house facilities. Rent charged to residents of the attached
apartments includes housing and water. Electricity is the responsibility of the apartment
resident(s). The Women's House residents are responsible for all utilities.
- Men's Campus House: $1,600 (old rooms) or $1,900 (suites) per semester per person
- Women's Campus House: $1,300 per semester per person
- The duration of the housing contract is a school year. Residents who wish to return the following year do not have to re-apply for housing. Residents that move out before the conclusion of a contract period will forfeit their deposit. Exceptions are made for students informing the office at least one month prior to start of a MST approved cooperative and other work/study assignments. Additional rent and contract will be necessary for students desiring to live in the campus house between the end of the spring semester and beginning of fall semester.
- Summer residency is available at reduced rates. Information on summer rates is available by contacting Andy Conklin.
- After a housing contract has been signed, any resident wishing to break the contract will be
charged a contract breaking fee as follows:
- If the contract is broken within 30 days after signing, they will forfeit the deposit of $300.
- If the contract is broken more than 30 days after signing, they will forfeit their deposit and pay an additional one month's rent.
