Kratz, Miller and Yoder Halls
Kratz, Miller and Yoder halls are available to single students of any classification who are younger than 25 years of age. Each hall is coed, with men and women on different floors. Students typically live in groups of 20-30 per floor. Leadership is provided by student resident assistants and a resident director.
Kratz and Miller Residence Halls
Rooms in Kratz and Miller Residence Halls overlook a pleasant courtyard where students can study or enjoy a latte from Java Junction. Furniture in Kratz and Miller is fully stackable, enabling residents to arrange their room in any number of crazy and creative ways.
Most rooms are double rooms, but there are a few singles, triples and quads. Men and women live on different floors. Double rooms average 17′ 6″ in length (includes closet space) and 10′ 9″ in width. The rooms are air conditioned. Laundry, kitchens, lounges and recreation facilities are located in the Kratz-Miller-Yoder Connector (built in 2004).
Kratz Hall was named in honor of Clayton Kratz, a Goshen College senior in the 1920s who disappeared while he was serving as a Mennonite relief worker in war-torn Russia.
Yoder Residence Hall
Yoder overlooks a recreation field where students spend the warmer months tossing frisbees or playing soccer. Each of Yoder’s spacious rooms has a large window and a wide windowsill where residents can lounge and enjoy beautiful sunsets.
The largest residence hall on campus, Yoder Hall provides housing for 202 students, with men and women on different floors. Laundry, kitchens, lounges and recreation facilities are located in the Kratz-Miller-Yoder connector.
