Student Life

Residence Life


Students study under a tree on the South Campus patio. Residence Life at Alma College doesn’t just mean a place to sleep. It’s about making connections within the campus community.

Because we believe that students learn from each other as well as from faculty and staff, Alma is a four-year residential college. All students are expected to live in college-owned or approved housing through our intentional experiential housing model.

First-year students reside in Bruske and Gelston, and sophomore students reside Newberry and Mitchell halls on North Campus.

Juniors and Seniors live on South Campus in either suite-style or apartment living. Aside from standard residence halls and apartment-style living spaces, A group of female students study and chat in a student lounge area. upperclass students can also choose to live in Greek or themed housing, including the only student house in the country specifically dedicated to Model United Nations.

With only a few doors between you and friendships that will last a lifetime, we hope that residence life is a memorable and meaningful part of your Alma experience.
