As a residential institution, Alice Lloyd College believes that campus living provides opportunities for personal growth, development, and education. Dormitory life is an integral part of the college experience and development of the total person. The opportunity to live away from home, gain personal maturity through responsibility, meet and share with new people from different cultural and personal backgrounds, and take an active part in the governance and operation of a residence hall are only a few advantages found in dormitory life.
The College requires that full-time students live in authorized campus housing with the exception of students commuting to ALC and living with immediate family members. The Dean of Students and Community Life must approve all other housing arrangements. Resident students are required to subscribe to the College Board Plan.
There are four residence halls on the campus of Alice Lloyd College. Berger-Auen Hall and Howard Memorial Hall are designated as men’s residence halls, and Carrick Hall and Lilly Memorial Hall are women’s residence halls. Each residence hall has three floors plus an apartment for the Head Resident on the first floor. The housing capacity for students in each residence hall is:
- Berger-Auen Hall-126 residents
- Carrick Hall-52 residents
- Howard Memorial Hall- 129 residents
- Lilly Memorial Hall-198 residents
More detailed descriptions for each residence hall follow.
Each residence hall has its own distinguishing aspects, but all include spacious, comfortable lobbies where residents can meet for group studies, social activities, or to visit with friends. All residents have access to laundry facilities and vending machines.
ALL of the buildings on ALC’s campus, including all of our dormitories, have wireless capability.
Most rooms are designed for at least two occupants and are furnished with single beds or bunk beds, mattresses, a large study desk, chairs, closets, a dresser, and mirror. Each room comes equipped with jacks for telephones and computers, along with easy cable television hook-up. Students may bring their own appliances, such as small refrigerators, microwaves, stereos, alarm clocks, DVD players, and gaming systems. Due to safety requirements and fire codes, no hot plates or electrical cooking devices are permitted. Everything else is up to your own sensibilities and preferences. You may decorate your room however you wish, but we ask that you keep it in good taste. Posters or other items considered to be inappropriate by the College will not be permitted in the dorm room. At least one inspection for cleanliness and fire prevention will be scheduled each month.
Residence hall quiet hours begin at 10:00 p.m. each night and end at 10:00 a.m. each morning. Students are expected to observe these hours strictly so as not to disturb those students who wish to study. During final exams week, 24-hour quiet hours are observed.
A professional residence hall staff supervises dormitories. In addition, a student Resident Advisor is housed on each floor of each residence. Your RA is an excellent resource person who is there for your well-being and will help you navigate the ways of college life. The Resident Advisors have been chosen for their leadership abilities and are available for counseling and assistance.
Open houses for the residence halls are scheduled and publicized by the Student Services Office. The Head Residents and R.A.s supervise all open houses.
Sunday through Thursday curfew is midnight. Friday and Saturday nights curfew is 2:00 a.m. All visitors should vacate visiting areas in residence halls at least 30 minutes before curfew. Residence halls will be locked at curfew by the Pippa Passes Police Department. Anyone planning to be out of the dorm past curfew must have an overnight permission form. The student may pick up the curfew permission forms from the Student Services Ofﬁce between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or in special situations, forms may be picked up from the R.A. until 10:00 p.m.
