Residence Halls | Albright College

Residence Halls

The Quad

The “Quad” residence halls (Crowell, Krause, Walton, and Smith Halls) are a special living community for first-year students. These living-learning communities offer dynamic, focused programming and events to assist students with transition to Albright College and campus living.


Honors Housing

Students who are invited into the honors program and/or are scholar award recipients have a unique living option in Mohn Hall, a residence designated for honors students.  Resident Assistants (RAs), located on each floor, act as resources and sponsor some programming geared toward academic excellence.  RAs will also look for ways to integrate academics and cultures by engaging residents in mentor initiatives and other programming efforts.  Mohn Hall offers computer rooms and study lounges on the upper three floors. Upper-class honors students receive preference in this residence hall, but limited spaces are held for new students interested in this option.


North Hall

North Hall houses upper-class students, mainly sophomores and juniors, who are able to select this living option during the housing selection process in the spring.  Each pod houses 12-15 residents and has a restroom area (3 showers, 3 toilets, 3 sinks) with washer/dryer unit.  RAs are housed on the second floor of each pod.


Albright Woods Apartments

The Albright Woods apartments house upper-class students who must select this group living option during the housing selection process in the spring. Each apartment consists of a bathroom, living room area, storage closet, and a full kitchen complete with a refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher. Each apartment is also fully furnished with standard campus furniture. All apartments either have a balcony or porch.  RAs are housed in 5 of the 39 apartments.


Affinity Houses

Affinity Houses provide an independent living option for upper-class students to thoughtfully engage each other and the Albright community in a shared interest, philosophy, academic program, or student organization. This student-led living option encourages a cooperative living environment and provides unique programs for students.

Albright College currently owns and operates eight affinity houses. The houses hold 41 students, with the smallest house having three students and the largest having six. For the 2017-2018 academic year, Affinity Houses included the following themes:

The Publication House
Historian Home
Christian Fellowship
The “Hub” for Holistic Wellness
Arts and Theatre
Gamers’ Guild
Sustainability House
Music Appreciation
