Nelson Hall

Of the nine residence halls on campus, Nelson is Bethel’s biggest dorm and one of four housing options available for freshmen. Residents can choose between two-person rooms and six-person suites, and every night, a resident assistant hosts activities in the common lounge area (called Shack), so there’s always something to do in the evenings!

The Nelson Larson Science Center (NLSC) was built in 2020, and the 18,000-foot space is filled with biology and chemistry labs, study lounges, and windows that overlook Lake Valentine.
