CCU's First New Residence Hall

In August 2014, construction began on Yetter Hall, the second building in CCU's Lakewood campus redevelopment project — a new residence hall to house the rapidly growing student body. Construction was completed in one year, and in August 2015, 300 CCU students moved into their new home on our Lakewood campus.

Yetter Hall will be a place of life change for innumerable students throughout the years, as they live in community and grow closer to Christ.

Yetter Hall features 53 apartment-style units and optional basement storage. In total, the residence hall is 103,000 square feet and holds 300 beds, with a ratio of 2 beds to 1 full bathroom. Additionally, each unit includes a full kitchen with living room and a washer and dryer. Yetter Hall was named after Archie Yetter, a past president of one of CCU’s legacy institutions.
