Residence Halls

Make yourself comfortable.

All residence hall bedroom furniture on campus is identical unless otherwise noted and can be configured many different ways. Each student receives their own twin extra-long bed and mattress, dresser, wardrobe, desk, desk chair and bookshelf. Rooms also have overhead lighting and window coverings. The furniture is self-stackable, so you can bunk and loft beds without outside bunking or lofting kits. All residence halls feature a kitchenette, study rooms, gathering space and free laundry machines.

Furniture in small housing varies and may not be the same as above.

For questions about specific small houses, please email residencelife@alma.edu.
