Defiance College's campus residences offer comfortable living spaces that foster personal, social and academic growth.
Our on-campus residence hall options vary from traditional living units to apartment style suites. In the past, these residential facilities may have been referred to as dormitories. By definition a dormitory is a place for eating and sleeping only. A residence hall offers more extensive living facilities (e.g. lounges, game rooms, study areas, meeting areas, TV rooms and laundry facilities). Also, a residence hall operates with an educational and holistic philosophy that works to positively impacts students during their formative college experience. The on-campus residential communities of McReynolds, Whitney, Jacket Suites and Grand Avenue should be referred to as residence halls (halls for short), not dorms or dormitories.
