Housing at the Seminary

For the 2019-2020 academic year, Gettysburg College is offering students housing at the Lutheran Theological Seminary, which is one mile from the Gettysburg College campus. Seminary housing options include air conditioned single rooms in one or two person apartments.

Housing Options

The available building at the Seminary is Baughman Hall (22) [number refer to the map below]. On this website you will find detailed information about Baughman Halls, including pictures. Interior pictures are provided for first and second floor apartments in order to help describe the floor plan for these large “efficiency” apartments. The interior layout of third floor apartments are similar to other apartments at Gettysburg College. All apartments at the Seminary provide more square footage per student than most housing at Gettysburg College.

Students will also be able to use a limited number of reserved “Seminary” spaces in the Stadium North Parking Lot.

The Seminary is only one mile from the center of the Gettysburg College campus, therefore making it possible for students to walk or travel by bicycle between campuses. DPS will offer Safety Escorts between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.

The College is also exploring whether the Freedom Transit Shuttle can provide service between the Seminary and Gettysburg College.

  • Fire Safety Inspections
  • Campus and Residence Hall Proactive Patrols
  • Safety Escorts between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.
  • Emergency Response
  • Incident Driven Response, and
