This fall, Adelphi met an enviable goal that many colleges and universities failed to accomplish: keeping campus—including the residence halls—open up to the Thanksgiving holiday. Not only did residence halls stay open, students made the most of the semester, enjoying days, evenings and weekends on our beautiful grounds and socializing while remaining socially distant.
Make Adelphi your “home away from home.” Our integrated academic and co-curricular educational environment helps all our residents grow intellectually and socially —with safety procedures that put wellness first.
Life on Campus
Seven residence halls welcome diverse students from around New York, the nation and the world.
Jump In. Get Involved.
Whether you are looking for a leadership role, want to help plan campus events or join a prestigious honor society, you’ll find great opportunities to participate in residential life on campus.
With careful planning led by public health experts, Adelphi’s residence halls are ready to open and welcome students. With reduced capacity, enhanced cleaning, touchless temperature scanners, mask-wearing protocols and other wellness measures, we can house students in seven clean and safe residence halls.
Each residence hall is supervised by a full-time, professional residence hall director (RHD) who is committed professionally and personally to the concept of the residence hall as a center of learning. The RHD lives and works in the hall throughout the year and supervises a staff of trained graduate and undergraduate resident assistants (RAs).
In addition, each building has hall attendants who confirm each resident is wearing their mask and has completed their daily AU2Go Health Check before they may enter the building during evening and late-night hours.
Every year, the residents of each building elect a hall council. Through the Resident Student Association, these hall councils manage an activities budget, provide social and educational programs for residents, suggest additional policies that complement those established by the University and communicate student concerns to the Office of Residential Life and Housing.
