The themed houses are a unique part of Geneva′s campus living options. These smaller gender-specific buildings are sprinkled throughout the College Hill neighborhood, providing an intentional living experience for students to engage in community among themselves and the surrounding community. In recent years, the houses have taken on specific themes such as discipleship, recreation, the arts, or faith & athletics and students commit to participating in the themes through shared meals, activities, and community engagement.
Formerly an elementary school, Schoolhouse is made up of 10 apartments that house four women each. Each apartment features a full kitchen with dishwasher, and some apartments have vaulted ceilings.
Kerr House accommodates 23 men in mixed-capacity rooms, from four-person rooms to single person rooms. Kerr encourages a strong sense of community among its members, and house activities are a common occurrence.
Located on 4th Avenue north of campus, Richardson House is a brick residence that formerly was home to the college president. It now houses 10 men and includes five bedrooms, three baths, a kitchen, spacious living and dining rooms, and a third-floor study.
