Through the residential experience, students are exposed to educational and social programs and activities that familiarize the residents with the diversity of lifestyles, backgrounds, and personalities of their peers. The residence halls provide students with value-based life skills that are transferable to the workforce and to life in general.
The halls also provide opportunities for group interaction and development of leadership skills through the Residence Halls Association, Resident Assistant positions, and hall/floor programs. It has been demonstrated that the intentional group living experience contributes to the development of the student's maturity and overall success.
Located in Veronica Hall, the Office of Residence Life is staffed by seven full-time professional staff members, and Resident Assistants. Residence Life also has a central desk operator, open weekdays during the academic year to respond to general questions and concerns. The desk is staffed by a combination of Resident Assistants and work-study desk attendants.
Alvernia University maintains eight distinctive kinds of residential living-learning environments. The University offers housing to full-time matriculated single students only.
