Graduate Student Housing

 Living and Learning in a Communal Environment

At The Walker Center for Ecumenical Exchange, we offer affordable housing for graduate students enrolled in degree programs that focus on topics of peace and social justice. It is our belief that by living together in a communal setting, students will engage in the free exchange of ideas that will enhance their classroom learning and help them move from social observer to social activist. On the campus of The Walker Center for Ecumenical Exchange, two homes—Barton House and Howard House—are dedicated to student housing.
