Student Housing and Dining Services
The Scripps Ranch Campus, Alliant's only residential campus, offers student suites with large living areas, a common lounge, swimming pool and on-site laundry.
Community Life is Important at Alliant, and It shows!
You’ll see professors and staff eating in the cafeteria with students, or meeting them for coffee in the Student Center to talk. In fact, community is at the heart of what we seek to accomplish in Housing and Residence Life.
