Life on Campus


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.

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.

Resident Advisors

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 which 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. Click here to meet the 2022-2023 Resident Advisors!

Room Deposit

Alice Lloyd College requires a non-refundable room deposit of $50.00 from all residential students. A student is responsible for his/her living area, its contents, and the College property. Damages can result in charges equal to the cost of repair or replacement.

Lost room keys should be reported immediately to the Student Services Office. A replacement key costs $10.00. If a student leaves his/her key at home, a temporary replacement key can be obtained in the Student Services Office.

Room Assignments

The Student Services Office will arrange room assignments at the beginning of each semester. In order to keep an updated list consistent, the Student Services Office has adopted a policy on room change. Room change requests can be made after the first full week of classes. Room changes after the one week deadline can only take place if the Student Services Office deems it necessary.

The College reserves the right to move students to consolidate vacancies or to improve the student life program. We feel that it is important for a student to have a roommate; in the event a student loses a roommate, he/she will be given the option of finding a new roommate in a timely manner or will be assigned a roommate by the Housing Director. Advance notice will be given to students in the event of such a move. Unauthorized moves will result in disciplinary action by the Student Services Office. A room is to be occupied by no more than the number of students assigned to it.

Quiet Hours

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.

Dorm Supervision

A professional residence hall staff supervises dormitories. In addition, a student Resident Advisor is housed on each floor of each residence. Your R.A. 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.

Dorm Open Houses

Open Houses, a time at which male students may visit female students in their dorm rooms or vice versa, for the residence halls are scheduled and publicized by the Student Services Office. The Head Residents and R.A.s supervise all open houses. Rules for proper conduct during Open Houses will be explained to the students by their R.A.s.

Dorm Visitor Regulations

A student may not visit the residence areas (including hallways and stairwells) of members of the opposite sex. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action, up to and including possible suspension or expulsion of any or all parties involved.

Dormitory visitors are subject to all Alice Lloyd College rules and regulations. Student visitors are welcome in the public areas of the dormitories from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily, but opposite sex visitors may not be in the public areas at other times of the day. Only during dorm Open Houses may students visit the dorm rooms of the members of the opposite sex. All other visitors must have a pass signed by a Student Services staff member. Visitors must be registered by their hosts/hostesses at all campus social events they wish to attend.

Residence Hall Visitation Policy

The following rules must be observed by resident hosts and their guests:

  • Overnight guests must be sponsored by a resident student host who will complete the necessary paperwork.
  • The student host will be responsible for finding appropriate housing and contacting the appropriate R.A.s and head residents.
  • The resident student host will be responsible for the behavior of the guest. Guests are subject to the same rules and regulations as resident students.

Use of Residence Halls During Vacations/Breaks and Summers

Permission for housing during the College vacation periods and summers is usually granted for students involved in the College’s winter and summer work programs. However, any student requesting the use of a room in a residence hall must obtain prior permission from the Student Services Office.

Use of Tobacco

Tobacco use of any type is not allowed in any buildings on the Alice Lloyd College campus.

Note: Use is prohibited with exception to designated areas only.

Alcohol & Drugs

The College does not permit the use of or possession of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs on “campus.” Improper use of any drug(s) will not be tolerated. Violators will be disciplined. If the College determines that a student violates this policy, that student will be suspended or expelled. In the event of suspension, the student may reapply for admission the following semester. “Campus” includes Lots X and C, the baseball/softball field and the area between the two stop signs on either end of campus. In the event of suspension, the student risks the possibility of losing all financial aid as outlined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The Student Work Program

Central to the philosophy of this institution is the College’s Student Work Program. The opportunity for students to work helps fulfill their economic needs and promotes wholeness in their educational experience. All full-time students are required to work a minimum of ten hours each week during the regular term of classes. Educational costs and/or personal expenses may be reduced by working extra hours. For more information about this important program, click here.

Identification Cards

Full-time students are identified by resident or commuter classification and are issued an appropriate identification card at registration. Identification cards are used by students to obtain access to dormitories and classrooms and to check out materials from the McGaw Library. Resident students will be asked to present ID cards in the Hunger Din before receiving their meals and at social events. Replacement of a student ID will be at the expense of the student.

Motor Vehicle Regulations

Students must register each automobile brought to the campus. Registration of automobiles is $60 ($30 per semester). Upon registration, a sticker (decal) is issued to identify the motor vehicle and a parking lot/area will be assigned. Failure to comply with the regulations published in The Student Handbook may result in a fine and/or towing of the student’s automobile at the owner’s expense.

When a student reaches the automobile registration step in the registration process, he/she should have with him/her the following information: license plate number; dorm name and room number; home address and phone number; and make, model, and color of the vehicle.

Primary and Secondary Vehicles

If a student must switch cars on a regular basis (example: must drive mom’s car one week and dad’s car the next), both vehicles must be registered. The primary vehicle will be charged the annual regular registration fee of $60.00.

No refunds will be given after the first full week of classes.
