SUNY Oneonta is a mid-size, four-year, public college. We offer small classes, loads of activities, opportunities for undergraduate research, student/faculty interaction and an attractive cost of attendance.

Nestled in the hills of Central New York, the college’s idyllic setting is ideal for study, adventure and self-discovery. Just “up the hill” from the charming City of Oneonta, our campus and the surrounding community engages, nurtures, and inspires.

Caring is our longest-standing tradition, traced all the way back to the school’s founding in the late 1800s. Today our growing alumni network spans the globe, advancing the values of inclusivity, service and sustainability that exemplify SUNY Oneonta.
