Residence Life : Global Alfred

Living learning experience
Global Alfred provides an opportunity for American students to interact with international students in a dynamic multicultural setting. It affords a unique cross-cultural living situation that increases a student's knowledge about major current events, basic cultural information, and unique practices from around the world. Students experience a wider diversity within their social network and learn about themselves in a larger cultural context.

Located at 9 Sayles Street, on the south side of campus, Global Alfred fringes the outskirts of campus. However, conveniently located near Herrick Library, Alumni Hall, Powell Campus Center, the apartments and the Wellness Center, Global Alfred is easily accessible to campus life. Global Alfred is labeled 42 on the campus map.
