Student Housing

Housing and Community

COVID-19 update: Some students remain in residence at DDH during the pandemic; the "House" is, after all, their home. A limited number of student rooms are in use with strong social distancing and cleaning protocols. We anticipate that DDH will continue to offer student rooms with a lower occupancy number for the 2020-21 academic year, pending University of Chicago decisions about plans for next year. DDH may have a few new openings, and we welcome applications through the online form below. Please be aware that new rental housing offers may not be available until mid-summer.

The Disciples Divinity House presents many advantages and opportunities for those seeking a community-oriented housing arrangement while studying at the Divinity School. Community members participate in regular programs and events and elect a House Council. The Willett Library and the Chapel of the Holy Grail, together with other common spaces, undergird personal and shared life.

Rent is partially subsidized so that the accommodations are among the most affordable in the University. They are also among the most convenient: DDH is immediately adjacent to the main quadrangle and to Regenstein Library.

Students in the Divinity School may apply for residence. Occasionally rooms are rented to graduate students in other University departments. Rooms may also be rented by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) who are studying in other graduate programs in and around the University.

All rooms are single-occupancy with shared dormitory-style bathrooms and showers. Rent includes free laundry facilities, wireless and ethernet access, the cost of Monday dinners, and other amenities. Rooms are furnished. Rent for the 2019-20 academic year is $2,000 per quarter; it will not increase for the 2020-21 year. Rooms are normally available for the full academic year only, with the option of extending rental through the summer.

To join the student community and apply to rent a bedroom-study, apply now online. Applications are reviewed by the student House Council in the late spring for the coming academic year. Occasionally there are mid-year openings.
