On-Campus Doctoral Residency

The School of Business & Leadership is committed to the historical foundations of the doctoral degree in which a scholarly community is created among faculty mentors and student scholars. Regent University mirrors this historical tradition by using student cohorts, intensive on-campus residencies and a variety of interactive discussion modes that extend beyond topical course discourse.

The Ph.D. and DSL programs in the School of Business & Leadership include two required residencies, each covering four days and held on the campus of Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Lodging

All students are responsible for their own lodging, travel arrangements and incidental expenses associated with the residencies. The Founders Inn & Spa is the student preferred and recommended residency hotel. It is adjacent to Regent University and within walking distance to the entire campus. The School of Business & Leadership works closely with The Founders Inn and has secured a special residency rate. The number of discounted rooms is limited, so early reservations are highly encouraged. Students should plan to arrive the evening before the start of residency and depart after 4:00 pm the final day of residency. Room rates for this event at The Founders Inn & Spa range from approximately $150 – $172 per night, including taxes and fees.
