Alyssa Caffarelli Murphy

Alyssa joined the Ursinus College Residence Life staff in July 2019 as the Assistant Director for the Reimert, New, and Richter-North communities. However, she is no stranger to the Ursinus community as she is an alumna of UC (Class of 2013). She provides leadership and direction for the Assistant Director and Resident Advisor programs, housing selection processes, crisis management, and student conduct process. Alyssa is currently working on opportunities that connect the student residential experience to the four open questions of the Ursinus Quest.

Alyssa lives on campus with her partner, Sean and their son, Oliver. You can find her on campus taking walks with Oliver, at many Dance & Theater events and eating in Wismer for most lunches. When she’s not at work she enjoys kickboxing, cooking, visiting family, traveling, and watching Netflix.


Prior to returning to Ursinus, Alyssa worked at Pace University and Moravian College in Residence Life and Housing Operations.
