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. (Only full-time students — individuals who are enrolled in at least 12 credit hours of college classes — are eligible to live in one of the College dormitories.) The Dean of Students and Community Life must approve all other housing arrangements. Resident students are required to subscribe to the College Board Plan.

Dorm Amenities, Rules, and Conditions
Become a Resident Advisor
Resident Advisors are the Student Staff members living in the dormitories. There are twenty-seven RAs that serve in the dorms, including five Head and Assistant Head RAs. The RAs are all upper-classmen, selected for their outgoing character and leadership abilities and required to be in good academic and social standings. These students spend a week each fall in an intensive training program and continue weekly seminars throughout the school year. RAs are trained in a way that will enhance their peer’s college experience. They are also responsible for monitoring student behavior and enforcing the College’s policies and rules. RAs are also expected to plan activities for students on the weekend and are available to provide assistance to students throughout the week. There are either one or two Resident Advisors on each floor of every ALC dorm, and students are encouraged to seek their help and assistance whenever they may need it. The overall goal of RAs is to be of service to students and to assist them whenever possible with any number of issues.
