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.

Spring 2021 Campus Move-Out Information:

    • Students who are participating in the Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 22, and

    • Students who are waiting to take the next available airport shuttle, if that shuttle is departing more than 24 hours after their last exam, and

    • Students who have been approved to stay for 12-Month Housing and/or Summer Housing.

  • There is NO moveout on Commencement day (May 22, 2021) for non-graduating students due to traffic and safety needs.

  • It is recommended that students consider moving out the weekend before Commencement, May 15, 2021, especially if travel over a weekend is preferred.

  • Students’ rooms and common areas must be completely clean, with ALL belongings and trash removed, in order to avoid cleaning charges. Furniture should be reset to the original layout.
