On-Campus Living at Adelphi

Adelphi’s residence halls are more than just dorms—they’re communities.

Welcome to Adelphi’s residential communities, where students from all over the country—and the world—live, learn and grow together. Each of our seven residential communities offers support and convenience, as well as opportunities for personal growth, cultural exploration and interaction with peers and staff. 

When you live on campus, you can be anywhere you need in five minutes: classes, dining locations, fitness center and gym, library, computer labs, bookstore and our spectacular performing arts venue. You can easily drop by campus offices like the Center for Career and Professional Development, Registrar’s office, Financial Aid, Health Services Center or Student Counseling Center. You will save hours each week by living on campus.
