Holland House, the former home of two Elon presidents, was moved from its location across from the McMichael Center to South Campus and is now home to the Catholic Newman Center Theme Community. Named in honor of John Henry Cardinal Newman, the Newman Centers are residence and Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic universities throughout the world. The Catholic Newman Center at Elon provides programming space, student residences, and a residence for the Peer Ministry Coordinator, a professional staff member who serves as the Resident Advisor.
The first floor is reserved exclusively for use by Catholic Campus Ministry to host programs and activities sponsored by the organization. The first floor is also welcome for use by other Religious & Spiritual Life organizations, but any use of the first floor must be requested through the LC Advisor. The second floor is part of the University Residence Life program and provides housing for four students and the Peer Ministry Coordinator.
Students residing in the Holland House do not have any official duties with the Catholic Newman Center but are expected to be an active participant in various programs sponsored by Catholic Campus Ministry throughout the school year. Through these, you will engage in and learn about the life of the Catholic Campus Ministry program and community. The second floor is private and separate from the first floor, but student residents will be expected to keep the entire first floor orderly at all times.
The Catholic Newman Center is also an alcohol and substance-free community. Student residents will not be allowed to consume or possess alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs, or any illicit substances in the building, regardless of age.
Student residents will be expected to attend house meetings with the Resident Advisor at the beginning of the school year and once a month thereafter.
The Catholic Newman Center is open to male and female, first-year and upper-class students. Student residents are expected to participate in various Catholic Campus Ministry activities and programs. Residents should have a positive attitude towards the Catholic faith and maintain a welcoming and cooperative spirit of the house.
