Residence Hall Accommodations

Students registering for summer session classes can live on-campus in Alliance Hall. This is a traditional residence hall, recently renovated to enhance this high-rise environment. Kitchen facilities are available on the 12th floor for residents.  The kitchen will prove to be an ideal place to prepare or share a meal with members of the Alliance Hall community, with a view overlooking Hofstra’s campus and surrounding community. All rooms in Alliance Hall have new state-of-the-art furniture to maximize your comfort while residing on campus. The building is staffed 24-hours-a-day by resident security representatives and RAs are on duty each evening from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning. Rooms are furnished with a bed, mattress, desk, desk chair, desk light, and wardrobe/closet. Residence hall accommodations also include access to Hofstra’s computer network, cable, and local telephone access. Alliance is air-conditioned to ensure your comfort while residing on campus this summer.
