Alverno College recommends that all Weekday College students entering the college within one year of high school graduation, 17-20 years old, live on campus for the first two semesters. Alverno offers suites (single with a bathroom), large singles, small singles, and doubles in Austin Hall. Suites and large singles are available in Clare Hall. Austin Hall is the heart of Alverno's Residence Life program, with many activities and initiatives available to students, including the Community Service in Leadership and Wellness living communities. Clare Hall is a more mature environment designed for upper-level students.
Housing Contract Process
Weekday students can complete the housing contract either online or via a pdf version, which you can print off and mail to the address listed on the contract.
Alverno on the Weekend students must print and mail the pdf version of the housing contract.
Your housing contract will be processed once we receive the completed contract and your $100 housing deposit. For new students, room assignments will be made on a periodic basis.
Themed Learning Communities
Alverno College Residence Life offers different themed communities in both Austin and Clare Hall. They are as follows:
Non-Traditional Student Wing - Students that live on this wing are more of our adult learners who enjoy the community environment of residence hall living and wish to live on the same wing with each other. Programming on this wing is focused on the adult learner and non traditional student experience.
Community Service and Leadership Floor - The purpose of this floor is to bring a group of like-minded students together in a living situation where they will participate in activities rooted in service with opportunities to develop as leaders.
Wellness Wing - The purpose of this wing is to bring a group of like-minded students together in a living situation where they will participate in activities that promote a wellness lifestyle focused on the seven dimensions of Wellness: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Spiritual, Environmental, Occupational
Quiet Floor - The purpose of this floor is to promote a quieter environment for students to live and study.
Move-In Day Information
Move-in day is Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. for all residential students. Carts are available on a limited basis to assist with your move-in process. For a smoother process, students must have completed and turned in all Business Office paperwork, including your Loan Agreement and agreement on payments. In addition, please bring with you the emergency card and immunization form that you receive in your summer mailing. Additional copies will be available. If you need to research your immunization record, and you are from Wisconsin, please go to http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/immunization/wir.htm. Students are required to submit completed forms prior to receiving room keys.
If you need to take care of business prior to receiving your room keys, please visit the website of that department for their office hours on that weekend.
Personalizing Your Room: What to Bring and What Not to Bring
You are asked to bring the basics: bed linens for a standard twin bed, blankets, pillows, towels, hangers, cleaning supplies, a lamp for study, alarm clock, health essentials, and cooking essentials. In addition, you may wish to personalize your room with plants, posters, and pictures from home (removable strip hooks or poster tack work well). Some students will also bring carpet pieces for the floor. We suggest carpets no larger than 9'x12'. Closet entry is an open space (46 1/2" width x 76" length) with a 1 1/4" diameter rod hanger. You may want to bring a curtain with hooks to personalize your space.
Please do not bring microwaves, hotplates, fryers, toasters, toaster ovens, space heaters, air conditioners, halogen lights, candles, incense, firearms, or pets (except for fish).
