Room Selection

Room selection for fall 2022 is now available! 
 

Room selection process is open until May 30. Log into your account today to secure your housing assignment. 

 

Space permitting, we will be conducting Open Room Changes within the first two weeks of the fall semester. 

Open Room Changes

Space permitting, open room changes will occur during the first or second week of each semester.

Room Consolidations

The college will initiate room consolidations when residence hall vacancies occur. The general policy states, when vacancies occur in any residence hall in a double room creating a 'single,' the college will request the remaining student to take a new roommate or move to another room. This may occur through no fault of the affected student.

The college reserves the right to require relocation or to assign any student to any vacant bed at any time. Thus, the remaining resident must not utilize both sides of the room should a vacancy occur.

Failure to comply with required relocation may result in campus discipline.

Over-21 Residential Designation

Individual apartments/suites may request specific designation as an Over-21 accommodation if all residents meet the required age designation at the time of application. Students residing in designated Over -21 accommodations may enjoy specific privileges accorded to that lifestyle option.

Approval of an Over-21 application is at the discretion of the Assistant Director of College Housing and the status may be rescinded at any time. This will include verifying judicial status for drug and alcohol violations. In the event of a roster change, all residents must continue to be over the age of 21 for the apartment/suite to maintain an Over -21 designation.

Room Designation

Designated singles exist only in the MacKenzie Complex, Getman Hall and Robinson Champlin Hall. All other rooms are double rooms that are occasionally available for purchase as a single accommodation. With the approval of appropriate college personnel, residents without roommates may petition to purchase a double room as a single accommodation.

If permission is granted, payment to the Student Records and Financial Services Office will be required within 24 hours of approval. Relocation may not occur until permission is granted by the Residence Director. Single accommodations in double rooms in fall or spring semesters do not guarantee similar benefit for future semesters.

Living Off-Campus

How do I search for housing?

Moving Off-Campus: Step by Step

Decide if you would like to live off-campus. Be sure to check that you are eligible to live off-campus and complete the Campus Waiver Application. Students may choose to move off-campus for various reasons, but it is a decision based on personal preference and needs. If approved, students can proceed with the following steps.

Speak with other students you may like to live with, or decide if you would like to live alone. If you don't know anyone that wants to live off-campus but you still do, don't fear! There are many properties who offer single rooms/apartments. Search the AlfredApartments.com or look for posters around campus and the village advertising apartments for rent. There are also several apartment complexes in Alfred that usually have space available every year, such as AlfredRental.com. Explore your options and pick a few places that interest you.

Contact the landlords of these places and indicate that you are interested in viewing their property. It's important to visit the apartment in person to decide if it's the right fit for you. This is also an opportunity to inspect the property and ask the landlord questions about living there, such as utilities, lease duration, security deposits, and when and how payment is due.

Once you decide where you would like to live, contact your future landlord immediately and set a time to sign the lease. Most landlords also require a deposit currently.

Congratulations! You're ready to move off-campus.

Review My Landlord

We're excited to announce that we are now advertising the use of Review My Landlord, an online database used to rate rental properties! This website allows off-campus residents to submit their own reviews and read reviews that others have written. This is an invaluable tool when searching for an apartment.
