Rules and Conditions
Each residence hall has its own distinguishing aspects, but all include spacious, comfortable lobbies where residents can meet for group studies, social activities, or 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 a 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.
Dorm Amenities and Rules
Student dormitory rooms are equipped with two Network Data Ports for accessing the campus Local Area Network (LAN). The computer center (Information Technology, located on the first floor of the McGaw Library and Learning Center) will provide assistance to students needing help connecting to the network.
Each student dormitory is equipped with one phone per floor. Lilly Memorial Hall is equipped with one phone per wing per floor.
Each student dormitory room is equipped with one television cable connection. Local cable programming is provided.
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.
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.
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 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.

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.
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
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).
Students who have been suspended may reapply for admission in the following semester and will be counseled by the Financial Aid Office regarding financial aid.
