Our First-Year Experience (FYE) program is designed to support you during your transition from high school to college. FYE fosters participation and community development in co-curricular events such as our common read, where incoming freshmen read the same diversity-related book that is discussed in fall courses; guest lectures; large-scale programming events and FYE traditions.

ALL freshmen will live in one of our five, corridor-style FYE halls—an exciting place to begin your Oneonta life! Perks include:

  • WiFi, cable TV and telephone service at no additional cost;
  • free laundry facilities on each floor, featuring “Laundry View” so you know when your washer or dryer has finished;
  • recreational lounges;
  • computer lab with printers;
  • individual and group study space;
  • fitness center;
  • kitchens; and
  • privacy and handicapped baths as well as separate facilities for men and women.

Safe Space and gender-inclusive options are available upon request.
