About The Belfry House:
The Belfry House is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house on 3 levels across the street from UC Davis! The first floor includes a living space and a bedroom with attached bathroom and walk in closet. The second floor includes a living/dining space, the kitchen, the laundry room, 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. The third level is a loft-style bedroom. There is a small patio space off the second floor living area. Bike racks are on site for your convenience. There are 3 parking spaces behind the building that can accommodate up to 6 cars. Parking is for residents only and is included in your rent. Utilities included in the rent are: water, sewer, trash, electric, gas, and internet.
Each room will be rented individually, some rooms can hold up to two people. Everyone who lives in the Belfry House must fully participate in the House Community and the Belfry Community. Roommates may choose to share the rent equally, or otherwise. If a roommate moves out, the remaining roommate is responsible for the rent in its entirety. The Belfry staff will not facilitate roommate matching, so if you desire to have a roommate, you must find that person on your own.
The Belfry House Community:
The residents of the Belfry House will construct a community "Rule of Life" that will guide their life together throughout the year. This will include chores, quiet hours, laundry policy, use of the kitchen, conflict resolution procedures, etc. It will also include at least one weekly meal together and one time of prayer together each week. The Rule of Life will be formed during a one day orientation at the beginning of the lease period/school year, and revisited at monthly house meetings, and as necessary with staff.
In order to strengthen and grow each resident's faith life, the House Community will be required to attend Belfry Wednesday Night Worship and Dinner weekly, and strongly encouraged to attend the regular programming of the ministry including weekly bible study, spirituality group, and monthly 'Faith and Film' nights. Attendance at these events is expected but you are students first and encouraged to prioritize academics.
