Living on Campus
Visit the Residence Life Website:
At Allegheny, we take the phrase “live and learn” to heart…and our four-year residency requirement supports that perspective. Living styles include all-male, all-female, and co-ed residence halls and apartments configured as suites, singles, doubles, triples, and quads.
Special Interest Housing
In addition to Living-Learning Communities, Special Interest Houses are available for a wide variety of student interests. Each has a specific mission and focus. In addition to living among peers with similar passions, each group provides programming to educate the campus community.
Academic Commons & Study Rooms
Home to the Allegheny Gateway and the Maytum Learning Commons, the Academic Commons is a space especially designed for student success. From its 350,000 volumes, movable furniture (which makes collaboration easy), and your very own research station, the Academic Commons is a hub for academic support.
Campus Center & Gator Quad
Major campus events, late night snack runs, student government meetings…the CC houses student-run Grounds for Change coffeehouse, WARC radio, the game room, bookstore, and student organization offices.
Wise Sport & Fitness Center
In addition to being home to the Gator athletic team offices, the Wise Center features a suspended track, intramural courts, an aerobic and dance studio, cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, a 25-yard swimming pool, and a diving well. Scuba, anyone?
Allegheny is a residential liberal arts college strongly committed to learning and growth beyond the classroom. 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 Office of Residence Life, located in Reis Hall, directly serves students living in College-owned housing and offers support to students in a number of areas. These areas include educational and social programming, assisting with roommate and personal concerns, and coordinating the communication of maintenance concerns in College residences.
