Along with the 350 first year residents living in this complex, a Community Director (CD), 12 Resident Assistants (RAs), and a Resident Minister (RM) also call Missions B home.

Each floor houses approximately 30 residents in fully carpeted single or double rooms and provides two furnished lounge areas. University-provided televisions are located in one of the two lounges on every floor. Each resident has a bunkable extra-long bed [80 in.], closet, chest of drawers, desk and chair.
