Office of Residence Life

Allegheny is a residential college, strongly committed to learning and growth beyond the classroom. The College has consequently enriched its residential communities with support networks, creative programs, social activities, and cultural diversity. Because daily life in these residential communities brings new perspectives to concepts studied in class and otherwise helps to broaden horizons, living on campus is considered an integral part of the Allegheny educational experience.

The Residence Life staff currently includes Area Coordinators as well as carefully selected and trained upperclass students who serve as Community Advisors (CAs) and Resident Advisors (RAs) all of whom live on campus and are available to address student needs.

Goals of the Residential College:

  • Support the academic mission of the College
  • Foster community living
  • Encourage personal growth and development
  • Engage in experiential learning and support other out-of-class learning experiences
