What is the male/female ratio?

FAQ Topics: 

How does the telephone service work?

Answer: 

All residence halls are wired for standard modular telephone jacks. Residents are required by their Residential License for Residence to provide one touch-tone telephone per room. Each student is issued a personal billing number (PBN) and then will receive a monthly phone bill if long distance calls are made.

FAQ Topics: 

Are there computers in the residence halls?

Answer: 

No, but if a student would like to bring their own computer from home, access to the college network is available in all residence hall rooms. Laptop computers are available to purchase through the Campus Bookstore.

May a student live off campus?

Answer: 

It is mandatory for all students to live on campus unless they are waived due to special circumstances. Examples of special circumstances include residing with a parent or legal guardian and commuting fewer than 60 miles one way, married, age 24 or older, or have children. Students may also live off campus if they meet the academic eligibility criteria. A housing waiver application must be completed for the Residential Life Office to consider off-campus housing.

What is the best residence hall to live in?

Answer: 

All of our residence hall communities have their own special attributes.  As a student at Alfred State College you can choose from a number of different residence hall lifestyles all with unique amenities.  You can choose to live in one of our corridor residence halls which include Braddon Hall, Burdick Hall, Getman Hall, Peet Hall, Shults Hall, and R/C Hall.  These residence halls consist of several rooms and a bathroom(s) opening onto a long hallway.  Another option is one of our suite style residence halls which include MacKenzie North, South, East, and West, Main Gate A, and Main Gate B.  These residence halls have three or four rooms sharing a common lounge and bathroom.  We also provide an opportunity for students to take advantage of townhouse living right on campus.  Each townhouse has a living room, kitchen, two bathrooms, and single room for each of the six students residing there.  For more information about living on campus, please call the Residential Life Office at (607) 587-4326.
