Residential Life and Housing


Housing Options

We offer a variety of residential communities for every interest.

Students may choose from a variety of residential options in our seven residence halls on the Garden City campus, including several available room types and special residential communities. Adelphi also attempts to provide special accommodations to meet the needs of students with disabilities.

Please note that the cost of housing depends on the room type and/or community selected.

Special Residential Communities

Students may request a specific housing assignment based on their interests, academic needs or other aspects of their identity. Students should indicate their choices on the Residence Hall Agreement. Assignments are based on room availability, and some frequently asked questions specific to these communities are included below. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions for more information regarding residential life as a whole.

Health Innovation Living-Learning Community

In partnership with the Center for Health Innovation, the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, and the College of Nursing and Public Health, the Health Innovation Living-Learning Community creates an interdisciplinary living-learning experience for students who are interested in exploring the interconnectedness of health and wellness as individuals, communities and members of a global society. The Health Innovation Living-Learning Community is located in Residence Hall B.

Application Due: Monday, March 27 at 4:30 p.m.

In-Person Housing Lottery: Wednesday, April 19 at 8:00 p.m.

Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender Inclusive Housing—which is now available in Chapman Hall, Waldo Hall and Residence Hall B—refers to rooms where people of any sex or gender identity can live together. This housing option helps create an environment that acknowledges, respects, and appreciates the diversity of our student body. Students may choose to live in Gender Inclusive Housing because they identify as transgender, they do not wish to be identified by any sex or gender identity, or they prefer to live with a roommate of a different sex or gender identity. Like all other on-campus housing options at Adelphi University, students are discouraged from living with their current partner regardless of sexual orientation.

Applications for Fall 2017 are due by Friday, April 7, at 4:30 p.m.

Please note: Gender Inclusive Housing requires that you submit a Gender Inclusive Housing Roommate Preferences (PDF) form and a Gender Inclusive Housing Policy Agreement (PDF) form during the room selection process.

The Honors College Suites

The Honors College section of Earle Hall is set up with suites that can accommodate approximately 30 Honors College students. Each suite has a semi-private bath and common living area. Honors College classrooms, study lounges, and computer rooms are also located in Earle Hall.
