The Interfaith House allows for students to live out the fullness of their faith in a way that is perhaps not possible in traditional on-campus living. Students of diverse religious, spiritual, and secular traditions live together in an intentional community, with an emphasis on community-building activities around the topics of faith, ethics, and dialogue. Residents will work together to create a “Community Covenant,” an intentional set of communal standards, as well as determining the dietary restrictions on food in the Interfaith House kitchen. Since the Interfaith House is campus housing, residents also abide by all Residential Life and College policies.
The Interfaith House is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors of all religious, spiritual, and secular expression. Residents plan programs each semester with fellow students and the broader community that address questions such as how we live our lives, and the role of ethics, value, and faith(s).
Kirk Section 8 has a large kitchen and access to the lounge. Students living in the Interfaith House are not required to have a residence hall meal plan. There is space for eleven residents in 4 double rooms, 1 triple room, and 1 single room.
