Your Home Away From Home
Alvernia University believes that living on campus can be an integral part of a student’s college education. Connecting with peers in student housing and sharing meals with friends in on-campus eateries is part of the college experience. These interactions foster support for personal, social, spiritual, and academic development by familiarizing students with the diversity of lifestyles, backgrounds and personalities of their peers.
To assist students through the transition of living away from home, the Office of Residence Life, which is located in Veronica Hall, is staffed by six full-time professional staff members and resident assistants. Residence Life also has an information desk, open weekdays during the academic year, to respond to general questions and student concerns. The desk is staffed by a combination of resident assistants and work-study desk attendants.
