The Fall 2024 Semester marks a continuation of our commitment to on-campus
living following the successful launch of our residence hall in Fall 2023. Bishop
M.L. Mitchell Hall is located at 605 Bishop Lindsey Avenue in North Little Rock.

Designed to accommodate both local and out-of-town students, as well as athletes
from Shorter's athletic teams, our new residence hall represents a significant step
in our transition back to our former status as a "residential" institution. This
transition marks a departure from our current designation as a "commuter" school,
enhancing the overall college experience for our students.

The residence hall features modern amenities and comfortable living spaces,
providing a supportive environment conducive to academic and personal growth.
With a maximum capacity of 44 residents per semester, we aim to foster a vibrant
and inclusive community within our halls.

To secure a room in our residence hall, interested students must complete an
application form before the start of the semester. Additionally, students must be
currently registered for classes and in good financial standing with the institution
to be eligible for housing.

We look forward to welcoming students to our new residence hall and providing
them with a safe, supportive, and enriching living experience during their time
at Shorter College.


Founded in 1886 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church and named for AME Bishop
Hames A. Shorter, the private, faith-based liberal arts college is the only private, two-year
HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) in the country.
