Living On and Off Campus

Andover Newton offers a variety of housing options for single students, couples and families. Many commuters also maintain campus rooms and stay overnight one to three nights during the week, thus enjoying the benefits of being part of Andover Newton’s residential community.

Located within three miles of the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 128, the campus is easily reached by car and public transportation. It is only a 10-minute walk from the Newton Centre MBTA stop on the Green Line’s Riverside “D” branch and is also easily accessible by bus. Ample free parking is available for those not able to take advantage of public transportation.

The Student Center in Upper Noyes Hall serves as a meeting place and TV lounge for the entire student body. In addition, this well-furnished, comfortable space offers a place to rest and relax before and after classes.

The cafeteria in lower Noyes Hall becomes a bustling gathering place where students, faculty and staff interact and form friendships during mealtimes.  Students report that the best way to feel a part of the community is to share a meal in the cafeteria.  You will find yourself in casual conversations as well as a part of lively theological discussions.  With over 35 denominations represented on campus, conversations over meals are never dull.

Student residences include a number of two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio apartments, as well as single rooms. A Resident Representative program helps to enhance community life. Student housing is handled by the Director of Campus Housing, Frank Novo.  Frank may be reached at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The Dean of Students’ office guides new students into campus life through an orientation at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.  In addition, Dean Nancy Nienhuis oversees the Spiritual Formation Program in which new students are divided into small Spiritual Formation Groups throughout their first year.  These groups are led by returning students and provide new students with a peer group with which to share their journeys into seminary life, particularly how these journeys affect their faith.  Dean Nienhuis is available to help people find solutions to challenges they face as they transition into life as a student.  She may be reached at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
