Residential Life believes that a student’s residence hall experience should be as individually suited to his/her needs and interests as possible. On this basis, Alfred State offers a lifestyle approach to residence hall living. Within the limits of college policy, various lifestyle areas are offered, and students may choose the area which best suits them. The following styles are located in designated areas of certain residence halls:
No Smoking – All of our residential facilities are smoke-free.
Baccalaureate Lifestyle – Available in Peet Hall only. This lifestyle option provides an opportunity for students in the baccalaureate programs to reside together.
Substance-free Lifestyle – This lifestyle is designed for the student interested in living within a tobacco-free and alcohol-free area. All guests and visitors are also required to abide by the substance-free lifestyle while visiting the area. Each student signs a contract pledging to remain substance free while living in this area. If you are not totally committed to the restrictions, this lifestyle is not for you.
24 and Over Lifestyle – This lifestyle option was created to address the special needs of nontraditional students, e.g. self-governed quiet hours and the ability to stay in the residence hall during breaks. Available in Main Gate B only.
Quiet Study – Guarantees a student a quiet area to study and reside. Mandatory 24-hour quiet. Stereos and radios are allowed but kept at a minimal noise level. Areas are available in certain residence halls.
Over 21 – A student must be 21 or older at the beginning of the academic year. MacKenzie West, North, and Main Gate A offer this lifestyle option.
Living and Learning Community – First-year student community in Burdick Hall. As a first-year student, you have the opportunity to become a member of our Management Living and Learning Community (LLC) and take the knowledge you are acquiring in the classroom and connect it with experiences outside the classroom, making you more prepared to tackle your college experience than other students!

Architectural Living and Learning Community (ALLC) – Typical residential housing with academic instructional space, all in one building.
Townhouse Style Living -- Apartment-style living for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
