On Campus:  Full-time residents

Living on "the hill” can be a very positive aspect of your seminary experience here at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. Sitting high on a hill, in a serene, park-like setting, CRCDS provides a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.

Our apartment building, Saunders Hall, is located on campus and is one-minute walk to Strong Hall, our main building, with its classrooms, library and administrative offices. Parking is free and adjacent to the apartments. The majority of apartments are one bedroom. However, there are a few 2-bedroom apartments. The buildings share a lawn along with a basketball court and other picnic necessities.

Each apartment is equipped with a stove and refrigerator. Occupants provide their own furnishings, dishes, linens, etc.  There is a coin-operated laundry facility. Saunders Hall also has a common social area for all students.

The School’s campus is on a bus line and is centrally located for easy access to shopping, banking and recreation.

Current Rental Rates:  $725/mo. for one bedroom and $800/mo. for two bedroom. (Includes heat, hot water & electricity.)
