Welcome to Mount Aloysius Residence Life and Housing Services. The Department of Residence Life and Housing at Mount Aloysius College is tasked with providing a safe, community-centered living environment on campus. The Department of Residence Life also enriches campus life through the creation of co-curricular events that broaden and deepen students’ academic experiences.
All resident students are required to be on the meal plan.
Traditional freshman, sophomore, and junior students are required to live on campus. Those who live within a 45-minute commuting zone of the College may live and commute from their permanent address.
All residence halls are smoke-free. Students can smoke outside in designated areas.
Student ID cards are photo ID cards that all students are required to carry in order to gain access to their assigned residence hall, utilize their meal plan, check out books in the library and attend college events.
All resident students are issued a physical room key for their individual living areas. Students are responsible to carry their room keys with them at all times.
If requesting a contract release due to medical reason or extenuating circumstances, the housing contract release form must be completed and returned to the Residence Life department. Please contact email@example.com to request the housing release information. The form is due by July 1st to be considered for a housing contract release for the Fall semester. The form is due by November 1st to be considered for a housing contract release for the Spring semester. Late applications will not undergo review.
Resident students are required to pay a Housing and Damage Deposit of $125. The deposit is in addition to enrollment charges and will be refunded to the student if there are no damage charges to the room or residence hall.
Guest Policy- If a student is to have a guest on campus, that individual must contact Residence Life at Residencelife@mtaloy.edu at least three days prior to the individual staying on campus. Guests must be 18 years or older. Guest also must not exceed 5 nights of visiting per month.
Room assignments are based on the date of housing deposit; therefore, students are encouraged to pay their housing deposit as early as possible. After April 1st, housing is awarded based on availability.
Roommate matching is not an exact science. Residence Life staff try to match incoming students based on similar interests and the information submitted on their housing preference forms. The rest is up to the students to appreciate each other’s differences and to communicate effectively if problems arise.
Roommate requests will be honored only if the requests are mutual; all attempts will be made to place students according to their preferences.
Single rooms are extremely limited and will be assigned on a space available basis, primarily for documented medical needs. Students may indicate on their housing application form that they are interested in a single room, but they must also select a regular room option. The additional cost of a single room is $500 per semester.
