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.

Living at Alfred

Living on campus is about more than just a room to study and sleep in. At Alfred University, a residence hall is a community. It's a place where you will create friendships, ideas and memories. Why not stay in the know on AU's social media, too?

Dining at Alfred

Whether you want an eclectic a la carte lunch, a fun pop-up shop snack, healthy pre-packaged food on the go, a seriously satisfying all-you-can-eat breakfast or dinner, some hot late night eats after studying with friends or to enjoy a Starbucks venti caramel macchiato and pastry betweens classes, there are plenty of convenient gourmet dining options to choose from across campus.
