Life in a Residential College

Living at ALC

As a Christian community, ALC endeavours to create a warm and caring environment where all residents have the right to live in a safe and harmonious atmosphere.

Many advantages can be gained from living in a caring Christian community with other young people who share similar goals, lifestyles and experiences. The transitional year from secondary schooling to tertiary studies can be overwhelming and for many of our residents this also means they are moving away from home for the first time.

We also welcome overseas students and students who have also been in other residential facilities who wish to experience living in a smaller community at ALC.
