Student Life

Looking for ways you can get involved in the Dordt student community?

Around 90% of Dordt students live on campus—visit us and you’ll see students watching movies, playing games, and studying together. Students enjoy roasting hot dogs and marshmallows at the fire pit behind the B.J. Haan, attending concerts and movies, grabbing coffee at the local Fruited Plain café, and traveling to nearby Sioux Falls and Sioux City on the weekends.

If you want to get a true feel for Dordt's unique student life, we recommend that you schedule a visit and experience things for yourself!

Live at Dordt

Your time outside the classroom is just as important as your time in the classroom. Dordt offers four residence halls and three apartment complexes to ensure that students always have a private, comfortable space to rest, study, and build lasting relationships during their time here.

At Dordt, I've developed many strong relationships and great connections with not only my peers, but also professors, administration, and alumni. Even in a small community, diversity is present, and I love seeing how uniquely God made each person.
