Moody Bible Institute requires that all unmarried undergraduate
students live on campus for the duration of their education at Moody unless an
exception is made for extenuating circumstances. Moody requires this for a
number of reasons, including students’ safety, community life, and campus
occupancy. Rates for all students are based on actual costs and are subject to
change without notice. No allowance will be granted for meals missed.
The number of single rooms for women is limited. No single rooms
are available for men. All rooms are furnished with beds, dressers, desks,
closets, and bookcases for the intended number of occupants. Students must
supply their own linens, blankets, pillows, and other accessories.

must make a reservation at an additional cost to stay on-campus. Students
planning to stay in campus housing during the winter break must be returning to
on-campus for the following semester. This information is not applicable to

to these residents via email. Students who stay on-campus over spring, summer,
or winter break may be eligible to have their room partially paid for by a Moody department that employs them, if approved.

All Chicago campus residential students and international students (including spouses and children) are required to be covered by a health insurance plan that provides for hospitalization and medical-surgical coverage in the event of sickness or accident for the entire time they are enrolled as a student. This includes breaks between semesters.
A student may choose to enroll in the Moody Bible Institute Student Health Insurance Plan or be covered by another insurance plan. If a student chooses another insurance plan, he or she must provide Moody with evidence that insurance coverage is in effect by submitting a completed Waiver of Insurance form and a copy of both sides of the current insurance card once each school year, prior to the fall semester (or the first semester of the school year during which the student is enrolled).
Commuter students are eligible to participate in the MBI Student Health Insurance plan provided that one or more of the following conditions apply:
Enrollment and waiver forms can be found on my.moody.edu.
All students are personally responsible for any health care expenses not covered by their insurance, (deductibles, co-payments, excluded items and services, etc). Students are responsible for knowing and following the procedures of their insurance company, including remaining current with any forms to be submitted, and for following the payment policy of the health care provider, office, clinic or hospital from which they receive services; this may mean that payment is required at the time of service.
Listed below are the prices for student health insurance for the 2016 - 2017 academic year, for those students who do not have their own insurance and choose to enroll in the MBI plan. A separate handling fee of $20 per semester will be assessed to each student (if insurance is required or taken), regardless of the type of coverage.
Available to any eligible student's dependent(s).
* If both husband and wife are students, they may each enroll as single students in the Individual Plan.
International Students desiring to waive Moody's insurance plan must
be covered by an insurance company based in the United States.
