We are so excited you have chosen to live in Biola Housing!
We believe (and research shows) the opportunities that come with living in a residence hall on campus will have many benefits for you as a Biola Student. You will be living with peers, learning from each other, and having opportunities to experience close Christian community in ways many people do not.
Students under age 20 as of the first day of Fall classes (Wednesday, August 24, 2016) are required either to live on campus or commute from their parents'/guardians' home for the 2016-2017 Academic Year.
If you are under age 20 and would like to commute from your parents'/guardians' home or if you are an Incoming Student over age 20 and want to commute from your parents'/guardian's home or non-Biola Housing, please complete the Request to Commute application.
Housing Assignments will be emailed to Incoming Students at their Biola email address and will also be available on my.biola (go to MyBiola>Student tab>MyHousing>Overview).
Incoming Residents can check-in Monday, January 23, 2017 through Friday, January 27 between 9am-4:30pm at the Housing Office (Student Services Building), or Saturday, January 28 through Sunday, January 29 between 1pm-10pm at their Residence Hall Office (or Housing Office if moving into an apartment).
Bring a valid form of government ID or your Biola ID to check-in.
Parking permits are issued by Campus Safety when classes begin. You do not need one to move in.

Biola University is not responsible for damage to or loss of personal belongings in University Housing, which are a result of fire, wind, water, insects, rodents, vandalism, or theft. When damage or loss is reported, the University will take reasonable steps to attempt to resolve the problem, but residents are solely responsible for all personal belongings.
Residents are encouraged to make sure personal belongings are covered by their parent's homeowners policy or a renter's insurance policy. The Biola Housing Department also encourages commuter student's residing off-campus (non-Biola Housing) to obtain homeowner's or renter's insurance to protect oneself against unforeseen circumstances.
