Johnson Residence Hall
Johnson Hall is a hub for growth, laughter, and most importantly, stimulating conversation between young men pursuing God’s call. The building is situated in close proximity with the rest of Asbury’s campus to encourage the full liberal arts experience. The Residence Life staff, led by the Resident Director, work to create environments suited for uplifting relationships. The goal in residence life is to foster halls for residents to discover their new home.
Johnson is well equipped with two kitchens and three lobbies (East, West, and Main), along with the basement (located on the West side), which includes a study area, laundry room, and community space. Each hall averages 15 rooms with a combination of double and single units. The rooms share convenient community bathrooms, except on 1st and 2nd East where each room has a private bath.
Throughout the academic year, several organized activities take place to bring residents together in a larger setting. In many cases the residence staff tries to invite speakers and faculty members to generate discussion revolving around topics discussed in chapel. There is also a year long friendly competition between the halls, known as the 8CHO, which includes events like trivia, the Johnson film festival, and the famous relay race.
The Johnson staff also enjoys putting on holiday/seasonal-themed events. This includes the two-decade long tradition of ‘the Johnson Hall Christmas Party,’ an unmatched Christmas extravaganza.
