4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is fairly well, it does lack a few luxuries but does well for Alfred.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: i hate how the only resident buildings that have access to a stove and oven are the houses! Even the apartments only have a stove top.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depending on what dorm you live in, it can either be really nice or really crappy.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms/apartments are nice, some are horrible. The suites are disgusting and really far away. Ann's House and Joel's house are also really far away, but they're really big and clean and great. Then there's everything in between. You just have to sacrifice some aspects of your housing for the qualities you really desire.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I understand that the college needs to make money but I dont think the cost of the dorms every year are worth it. I am currently in a single and I can hear very clearly my neighbor having sex. The buildings are old. My last roommate was a drug addict and had other people sleeping in my bed half the time. I couldnt stay with her but didnt want to turn her in because I was a freshmen and didnt want to get a reputation. I ended up sleeping in someone elses room and basically paid for my room so she could have a giant room to herself.

Your residential experience at Alfred will vary greatly according to where you live. It’s mandatory for students to remain on campus until their senior year. Openhym is the largest and the most social. It tends to house the most art students. The rooms have dividers to add an extra hint of privacy. The rest of the freshman dorms (Tefft, Barresi, Cannon, and Reimer) are smaller with larger doubles. These are cozier. Although most students are pleased to leave the freshman dorms behind, many miss the sense of community they provided.

Students who stay on campus as upperclassmen have the option of the Brick, Pine Hill Suites, Kruson, Bartlett Hall, or the Ford Street Apartments. The majority settles in Bartlett Hall, the suites, or the Kruson. Special-interest houses are very selective and only house five to six students. The suites have kitchens, but the doubles are too small. With its spacious rooms and quaint wood floors, the Brick is the most popular. The building is ancient and has a ton of character. It may also be haunted. The Ford Street apartments experience less paranormal activity. These are strictly for juniors and seniors, and resemble the suites. The kitchens are huge. The only way to get in is to get a posse together and lobby like hell about a year in advance.

Did You Know?
  • Built in 1858, the Brick is listed in the National and State Historical Register. It has been used as a boarding house, gymnasium, and even an infirmary after WWI. All this history has left the Brick literally "haunted by its past." There are many accounts of paranormal encounters in its halls.
  • All residence halls and immediate areas are smoke-free.
