Spring 2021 Housing Statuses:
Remote students will not have campus housing, and campus meal plan, or any access to facilities or in person resources on campus throughout the semester.
They have remote access to services from the Counseling Center, Writing Center, Academic Resource Center (including tutoring), the Office of Disability Services, etc., Career Services, etc. They are assigned a remote RA who will reach out about individual and community meetings.
Please note that the commuting policy typically requires students to be commuting from their home address within 25 miles of the college. For the Spring 2021 semester, we have extended that radius to a “reasonable driving distance to the college”. If you do not live within 25 miles of the campus, you will not be approved as a commuter student for future semesters.
Commuting students have access to in person and remote campus resources and facilities (except residence halls including MILE houses and apartments).
Commuting students are required to participate in our campus testing protocol.
Off Campus Status
Off Campus students (This includes residents of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house) have access to in person and remote campus resources and facilities (except residence halls including MILE houses and apartments). When conditions warrant, access to campus may be restricted to essential on campus resources only (meals, library, etc.)
Off Campus students are required to participate in our campus testing protocol. Off Campus students will be tested weekly.
Students living on campus including in the MILE area are required to participate in our campus testing protocol and will be tested at a minimum of every two weeks.

Living on Campus
Welcome to your home away from home! Through our holistic approach to residential living, students open doors to self-understanding, deep learning and lasting friendships. There is a shared responsibility in maintaining a safe and inclusive community, conducive to academic achievement, wellness and respect.
Our Residence Hall Communities
We know that most college students spend between 80 and 100 hours per week in their residence halls, more than in all other spaces on campus. Our resident advisors and liaisons make the most of this time through community development, cultural understanding, educational programming, life-skill-building opportunities and mentorships.
Living on campus, students join a caring, vibrant community. Here’s a taste of what we offer:
- Community Meetings: Join together with fellow residents.
- Community Events: Learn and socialize with your dormmates.
- Appreciation Days: Thank the people who work in your building.
- Community Service Projects: Every building coordinates a project for Allentown residents.
Finding Your Campus Home
There are several halls and community properties that offer both traditional style housing and suite style housing. Our residence halls offer services for day to day living, but they also provide collaborative community spaces to interact with other residents. Whether you crave energetic social spaces or a quiet work environment, a single room or a suite with friends, all are in close proximity to the best places on campus. Check out our many options.
Housing and Residence Life handles the campus-wide housing lottery, the MILE lottery (for College-owned houses and apartments), group-interest housing, special-needs housing and the off-campus application process (for juniors and seniors who wish to live off campus). You are also able to apply to stay in your residence hall over semester breaks. Housing and Residence Life is located on the ground floor of Prosser Hall.
