Living on the AMBS campus is the best way to experience all that AMBS has to offer, including ready access to classrooms, the library and faculty and the full range of worship opportunities and community life.
Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible for campus housing. If you have any questions, please contact Judy Yoder, director of housing.

AMBS provides 25 units of campus housing, including one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Most units come as furnished apartments, although unfurnished apartments may be available.
Several units are ideal for families with children. Others are available for small clusters of students who wish to live in a community arrangement.
A limited number of unfurnished apartments are pet-approved, providing guidelines are followed. Inquire with the director of housing regarding availability and guidelines.
Campus housing is intended for AMBS students, working toward a degree. First priority will be given to full-time degree-seeking students; second priority will be given to part-time degree seeking students. Occasionally AMBS may allow others with seminary connections to rent on a temporary basis. These exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis, and only if they fall within the mission/purpose of the seminary.
Combining study and volunteer work
One possibility for combining study and volunteer work is to coordinate your time at AMBS with a Voluntary Service assignment. Prairie Street Mennonite Church is a local Elkhart congregation that sponsors a Voluntary Service unit. While living in the congregation's VS unit house, someone may study half-time at AMBS and have a half-time volunteer assignment, or, in the case of a couple, one spouse can be a student and the other can have a VS assignment. For more information, contact the AMBS admissions office. To see more about Prairie Street's Jubilee House, see the website for the Voluntary Service unit.
