Campus Life

There’s more to life than class.

You’re not just choosing a school — you’re choosing a home. On Alverno’s beautiful campus you’ll find a diverse, welcoming community of students and faculty, plus opportunities to learn, lead, explore and give back, not to mention have fun. And you don’t have to live on campus to enjoy a host of activities and special events (but spoiler: you may not want to leave once you’re here).

Residence Life

From late-night study sessions to lifelong friends, our residence halls will give you so much more than just a place to sleep. We offer room and meal plan options for every budget. Ready to move in?

Student Activities & Leadership

Choose your own adventure! With 30+ student organizations and numerous leadership opportunities, its easy to find your fit (and enhance your resume). Where will you start?


Campus Ministry

Interested in exploring your spiritual side and serving your community? We offer inclusive programming for students from a wide range of faith traditions as well as volunteer opportunities in Milwaukee and beyond.
