Belmont Abbey College is honored to be the home of “MiraVia,” a residence for pregnant college students. The first of its kind in the United States, MiraVia provides alternative student housing and support for single, pregnant and parenting students.
The Monks of Belmont Abbey Monastery donated the land for MiraVia’s 10,000 sqft facility to the organization. The residents maintain their academic careers while living at MiraVia, either through classes at Belmont Abbey College or at another local or online college.
The Mission of MiraVia
Respecting and affirming life from the moment of conception, MiraVia is a safe haven and source of hope for pregnant mothers and their children. Invoking a Christ-centered approach inspired by the examples of Mary and Joseph, MiraVia helps young families move toward a new life of hopeful, independent, and healthy living and educates the broader community on the importance of fostering a culture of life.
Pregnant students interested in housing at MiraVia should contact the organization via their website www.mira-via.org.
