The Residence Life department at Mount Aloysius strives to provide a safe and community centered living environment that provides co-curricular events and programs which support and enhance students' academic experiences. The Residence Life staff includes professional staff and Resident Assistants (RAs) who work with residents to foster a strong sense of community in each residence hall.
The College operates three residence halls on campus: Ihmsen Hall, St. Joseph Hall, and Misciagna Hall. Most rooms are double and/or triple occupancy; however, single rooms are sometimes available for an additional fee. All of the residence halls have lounge areas with color televisions, study rooms and are part of the campus's wireless network.
Ihmsen Hall accommodates men and women in separate sections of the building and houses both first year students and upper class students. Each room in Ihmsen Hall contains a sink, bed(s), dresser(s), desk(s), chair(s) and a mirror. Microwave ovens and sinks are located on each floor of Ihmsen Hall.
ST. JOSEPH HALL
St. Joseph Hall is an all women's residence hall for first year and upper class women. The rooms are furnished similarly to Ihmsen Hall.
Misciagna Hall offers suite-style living for students. Each suite includes two double-occupancy bedrooms with a bed, dresser, desk, chair, and closet for each resident; a living room/kitchen area with a microwave, refrigerator, sink, cupboard space, closet space, couch, arm chairs, TV stand (students must provide own TV), and a table and chairs; and a bathroom/vanity space. Misciagna Hall is air conditioned and houses predominantly upper class students.

RESIDENT ASSISTANTS (RAs)
If you live in the residence halls, the 6-10 Resident Assistants are the student staff you will get to know well. The RAs are responsible for the students living in his/her residence hall and assist in their growth as individuals and as members of a group. They also act as a liaison between the students and administration. They must also interpret and enforce policies and regulations.
Although the Resident Assistants will be available most of the time, please remember they are students and people too, and need time for themselves. They will appreciate that, as would you. If you are unable to reach your RA, check the RA Duty Schedule posted outside each RAs door and in the Residence Life Office window.
Residence Life programming is based upon the concept of wellness in mind, body and spirit. Here at Mount Aloysius College, wellness is guided by our values of mercy, justice, service and respect. Residence Life challenges our students to develop leadership skills, become caring community members, and pursue their chosen vocation. Programs and events are offered throughout the year, and resident students are encouraged to become involved in planning and conducting these with their RA.
The College does not offer off campus housing. Local rental listings are posted on the bulletin board outside Cosgrave 106.
