Swauger Hall

The Swauger Dorm houses our upperclassmen women in the second and third floors of the Student Center. Swauger Hall was named after Mr. Raymond Swauger who help build, and RE-build Mt. Carmel and KMBC. We’re thankful for all he did for KMBC and the sacrifices that he made for his Lord!

The dorm can hold 20 women between the two floors. Students have access to a kitchen/lounge area with a double sink, full refrigerator, a toaster oven, microwave, and other small kitchen appliances.

There is also a community bathroom on each floor.

Laundry facilities are available in the basement of the dorm and are free for students to use. Also, students will find a vending machine on the first floor. Students also have access to the coffee shop, Lela G’s, which is in the basement of the dorm.

Each dorm room is unique, however the standard dimensions are as follows:
Room: 16’x11′
Windows: 3’x4′
Floor to Ceiling: 8′
Beds: Regular Twin
