About Dordt College

Dordt College takes its name from the historic Synod of Dordrecht, held in the Netherlands in 1618-1619. The Canons of Dort, one of the three major confessional statements of Reformed churches, came from that synod. The Canons of Dort were a response to statements made by the followers of Jacob Arminius, and emphasized the sovereignty of God through his electing grace.

Campus information

At the heart of Dordt's campus is the 85,000-square-foot Campus Center, constructed in 2002. The lower level houses a game room with bowling alley, a worship arts rehearsal room, darkrooms, along with storage areas and a mechanical room. Level one includes the Defender Grille, De Yager Student Activity Center, mailroom, and the Student Services office complex. On level two are the offices for admissions, an activity area, information desk, bookstore, art gallery, meditation rooms, Eckardt Lounge, and an entrance into the John and Louise Hulst Library. The top floor houses the college's board room, the president's office, academic offices, classrooms, and the Business and Conference Center.

Dordt College is located in Sioux Center, a thriving community in Northwest Iowa. Sioux Center is 45 miles north of Sioux City, Iowa, and 55 miles southeast of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.


East Campus Apartments
Four apartment buildings located between the Recreation Center and Covenant Hall comprise the East Campus Apartment complex. The apartments were remodeled in 2011, and feature an open floor concept and updated kitchen spaces. Arranged in close proximity with one another, the building configuration provides a unique opportunity to form a "layered" community: community within individual apartments, community within each building, and community within the complex itself.

East Hall
East Hall is home to men of primarily freshmen and sophomore status and is conveniently located in close proximity to North Hall, the Commons, and the college's academic complexes. Extensive remodeling was completed during the summer of 2000, giving East Hall an excellent academic and social environment.

Kuyper Apartments
The Kuyper Apartments are located on the southeast side of campus overlooking the natural prairie. This building, constructed in 2010, was designed to include many "green" features including a geothermal heating and cooling system, energy-efficient lighting, locally sourced materials, and high-efficiency windows. Environmentally responsible materials were used, including bamboo "plyboo" plywood, durable Corian countertops, and concrete floors, which are better for allergy sufferers and keep the college from dumping carpets in landfills. The apartments are designed with an open floor plan kitchen and lounging area, convenient bathroom facilities, and three bedrooms for six people.

North Hall
North Hall houses first- and second-year men, contributing significantly to community development. Nestled in a row of pine trees, it creates the border on the northwest side of campus. Its close proximity to the dining hall and classroom buildings make the hall an appealing place to live. 

The building was extensively remodeled in 2001, and it provides residents with an excellent social and academic environment.

Southview Apartments
Designed with our upperclassmen in mind, Southview Apartments provide an opportunity for groups of six to live together in close-knit community. Each apartment features private bathrooms and living rooms, as well as full kitchens.

West Hall
West Hall is a residence hall housing students of primarily freshmen and sophomore status. It is located near the college dining hall and the classroom buildings. West Hall was extensively remodeled in 1999 with additional renovation occurring in the summer of 2003.
