Life in a Residential College

Living at ALC

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 it means moving away from home for the first time. ALC provides a home away from home for students moving from the country, other residential facilities, from interstate or from overseas, offering community in residence.
