For the new student, the residence halls provide a home and community that can make the transition to college a much easier one. Many students choose to live on campus their entire time at Alverno. The residence hall staff are trained and available to help students adjust to college life, to offer advice, and to help make campus living an asset to their education. Life in the residence halls provides plenty of opportunities for lifelong friendships to develop.
The residence hall rooms are spacious; they are furnished with a vanity and sink, beds, a desk and chair, full closets with dressers, and a microfridge. Students share a lounge, showers, and a kitchenette with about 30 other students who live on the floor.
Students have many opportunities to have fun and to meet students from across campus. There are a variety of activities to choose from. Students on campus enjoy a large study space, a computer lab, storage, free parking, meeting rooms, laundry facilities, and a student lounge with large-screen TV and VCR/DVD player.
Alverno is located in one of the lowest crime areas of Milwaukee, and the Security staff are committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and guests of the college. They work with the Milwaukee Police Department to develop policies and proactive strategies to address campus safety issues. Campus Security is available to respond to security concerns; provide emergency first aid when needed; direct and assist visitors, students, faculty, and staff; escort individuals to their vehicles and to other buildings; enforce regulations and policies; and provide programming to encourage positive safety habits.
