Student Life

Residence Life

Residence Life at Alma College doesn’t just mean a place to sleep. It’s about making connections within the campus community.

Students study under a tree on the South Campus patio.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.
