Housing, Dining & Transportation

At Alfred University, learning includes living. We guarantee housing for all four years, and about 70% of our students live on campus. You will eat great meals with great friends in our dining halls, which offer delicious dietary options, with food sourced from local farms. And with ample ways to get around the area, you can see and do more to make life at Alfred your very own.
