Welcome to Residence Life

Allegheny College is a residential college that requires students to live on campus during their undergraduate experience. We believe the academic experience is enhanced by the residential and co-curricular learning experiences. The Office of Residence Life is responsible for general operations and administration of housing, residential education, and living and learning programs.

Residence Life Mission Statement

Within the Division of Student Life, the Office of Residence Life is a team of professional and paraprofessional staff.  We work collaboratively to foster a residential environment, which promotes community development, individual contact and programming which supports the academic mission of the College and holistic development of each student.  We believe that individual growth is vital to developing a quality community.  Our office provides services to the residential student population and other members of the Allegheny College community, including families, faculty, staff and the greater Meadville community.

Allegheny College Statement of Community

Allegheny students and employees are committed to creating an inclusive, respectful and safe residential learning community that will actively confront and challenge racism, sexism, heterosexism, religious bigotry, and other forms of harassment and discrimination. We encourage individual growth by promoting a free exchange of ideas in a setting that values diversity, trust and equality. So that the right of all to participate in a shared learning experience is upheld, Allegheny affirms its commitment to the principles of freedom of speech and inquiry, while at the same time fostering responsibility and accountability in the exercise of these freedoms.
