Update - July 25, 2020:

Jefferson College has taken a proactive approach to implement physical distancing guidelines, mask-wearing protocols, and numerous other health promotion practices to provide all students, staff, and faculty with a safe living and learning environment.

In light of these practices, protocols, and resources, Viking Woods will now increase the housing occupancy to 4 persons per apartment for the upcoming semester. We know that you may have questions or things you want to discuss related to this announcement, and our staff is here to speak with you. Please call, email, or set up a time to speak with Viking Woods staff to address questions you may have about the semester. You can contact Viking Woods at 636-481-3294 or at

There will still be options to complete online courses and virtual appointments with staff who still have concerns. We will also be checking in with residents and asking if they are experiencing symptoms, have been in contact with someone who has had symptoms or has tested positive. We will also have quarantine rooms if a resident is experiencing symptoms. There will be more information available in our orientation as well.

Rental rates have been adjusted for the 2020-2021 Lease Contract term. ONLY single rooms will be available for the fall 2020 term. Double and private room types will NOT be available. Rates are per term for the fall and spring.

Single Room - $2,030

Should additional bed spaces become available at any time during the leasing process (June 2020 - June 2021), those spaces will be offered based on the priority factors to be determined. Viking Woods staff monitor wait lists on a regular basis and will notify applicants via their email account if a space becomes available.

We encourage applicants to begin exploring other housing options in the event we are unable to accommodate them on campus.

All plans are subject to change at any time based on changing circumstances and knowledge – as case counts change, you may need to change plans, and as our understanding of the disease and how it spreads changes, there may need to be more changes.

Thank You,

Viking Woods Student Housing provides an opportunity for Jefferson College students to learn new life skills through independent living and relationship building.  Our multi-person apartments are nestled on a southern hillside of the Hillsboro campus - just a short walk to everything the campus has to offer.  All apartments are equipped with full access kitchens and furnished living areas.

There are many benefits to living on campus while attending college, but Viking Woods stands out due to our ability to offer individual leases.  An additional benefit to on-campus housing is that all apartment utilities are included in rent.  For example, you will not have to pay separate bills for electricity, internet service, water, sewer, etc. (with the exception of cable television), nor will you have to worry about your services being disconnected should your roommates not pay their part.
