Academic Success: Research indicates that students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn higher grades, and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers.

Living/Learning Communities: Students may join small living/learning communities that focus on such areas as psychology, social justice, leadership, and spirituality and society, for example.

Support: With college life comes transition. You’re never alone academically or socially when you live on campus. Mentors, counselors, student leaders, peer advisors, and professional staff are available.

Community: It’s much easier to get to know your peers when you live down the hall.

All-Inclusive: For most residents, one housing payment includes rent, furniture, utilities, cable and internet service.

Fitness: The fitness center, pool, and wellness classes are easily accessible.

Convenience: Classes, campus activities, athletic events, and student services such as advising, health services, and dining areas are short walk away. Spend less money on gas and less time traveling.

Dining: The dining halls offer affordable meal plans and exciting menu options.

Safety: Members of the New York State University Police and OCE staff are on duty 24/7.
