Concordia College Housing and Nearby Apartments


With such a far-flung group of hometowns (more on that below), Concordia on-campus housing needs to provide for a diverse group of students, and, in fact, nearly two-thirds of the undergraduate student population moves into some sort of college-owned and -operated residence every year. Housing options here consist of four separate residence halls: Bohm Hall and Sieker Hall, which offer "corridor style" living arrangements and are segregated by gender, with Bohn for women and Sieker for men; and Rippe Hall and Romoser Hall, with a "section style" design, and where most of Concordia's upper-class students live. There are also two Concordia off-campus housing options for upper-class and graduate students: Ressmeyer Hall, an historic house located near the school that functions as the Campus Christian Ministries Center; and Koepchen Hall, which is reserved for Concordia's Nursing and Master's Program students. Concordia's population of commuters--the hundreds of students who live in off-campus housing--are a vital part of the community, joining clubs and sports teams. And if you're a Concordia commuter in need of housing for the coming year, a good place to start your search is Concordia's immediate neighborhood of Bronxville, and there are often rental apartments available in one of the many lovely (and pricey) garden apartment complexes in the village and its environs. For a more affordable living arrangement, the nearby areas of Mount Vernon, Tuckahoe, and Yonkers are solid choices. And remember: Concordia is located only about 25 minutes from New York City. If you want the bright lights (and have a source of income to pay for it), you can certainly live in Manhattan and reverse-Commute every day.
