About Horton

Built in 2005, Horton Hall is the newest and second-largest residence hall on campus, and is treated as two communities: the north end is known as North Horton, and the south end as South Horton, each with its own RD and staff of RAs. It replaced the original Horton Hall, built in 1958, and is named for T.C. Horton, a pastor, author, colleague of Lyman Stewart, and co-founder of Biola.

Horton is close to the center of campus, with especially easy access to the music, athletic, and cafeteria facilities. Horton is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate sections of the building, while sharing the lobbies, kitchens, and laundry facilities.

Horton Hall's doors are secured by an electronic access system, so only students can access the building during the day, and only residents may enter the building at night. Each individual room is key-locked for student security. Security cameras in outside and common areas are monitored 24 hours per day, and Campus Safety patrols campus regularly to ensure student security at all times.

Community Life

What Residents are Saying

[Because of North Horton] I have been changed forever. I can better relate to people. I know how to love better. I know how to manage my time better. I have grown immensely.

-Josh F.

North Horton has heightened my admiration and desire for really strong community and relationships in my life. Because of my hall I know what that looks like and I think it is safe to say that I have high expectations for what I think close community and relationship should look like.

-Daniel D.
