College Maternity Residence

MiraVia’s college based residence is a place where pregnant college students can live and learn with each other. Expectant students from any college or university are welcome to stay for up to two years while they pursue their academic and personal goals.

Conveniently located at the beautiful campus of Belmont Abbey College, we are found at exit 26 off I-85 and just minutes away from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and many other area schools. Our unique residential program is designed specifically for pregnant college students. While they are residents here, they can be enrolled in any local college or university in the surrounding area. Each resident has her own suite, and we strive to create an environment that is positive and empowering.
