Transfer Student Housing

Where will I live?

As a transfer student, you are automatically opted into our Transfer Living Learning Community (TLLC). TLLC is designed to support your unique experiences and needs as a transfer student who is not new to college, but is new to Alma. The TLLC is located in Newberry Hall, which also houses other sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Check out more information about TLLC.

Housing Selection

Transfer student housing selection occurs from March through July each year and has three primary steps:
1. Sign your housing agreement, complete your roommate profile, and select your meal plan (March)
2. Select your roommate (June)
3. Select your room (June-July)

All of these steps will be completed through your housing portal, which you will be able to access after you make your commitment deposit. Through our portal, you will be able to meet possible roommates, find someone compatible, and choose your room for the upcoming year. If you are eligible to live off campus, you also can find the residency exemption application in your housing portal.
