C of I juniors or seniors can live in one of two Intentional Community (IC) houses, located next to the campus at the corner of College and Ash. The houses meet C of I residency requirements. IC houses are owned by a non-profit organization called Campus Ministries of Treasure Valley, Inc., which beyond housing also supports local and international service with scholarships and logistical support.
In an IC house Christians can support each other in faith and create a welcoming space to develop Christian culture (through friendships and social activities) for the greater C of I community.
