Living on Campus

As a residential college, Alma is where you’ll live and learn — and you’ll find it will quickly feel like home. Our campus is a friendly, welcoming place. You’ll build connections through your classes and extracurricular activities, but your closest friends may very well become the people you live with in Alma’s residence halls or themed housing options.
