On-Campus Living

It’s easy to find your home away from home at SUNY Oneonta. 

Living on campus is comfortable, convenient and fun, with lots of opportunities to make friends and get involved. Over the past few years, many of our 15 residence halls have been renovated, with amenities such as fitness centers, kitchens, computer labs and front-loading washing machines (no quarters required!) Housing rates are fixed for each incoming class.

SUNY Oneonta requires freshmen to live on campus for four semesters, with a few exceptions. All freshmen live in one of our double-style First Year Experience residence halls, which offer special programming and support designed to ease the social and academic transition to college life.

Freshmen interested in sustainability and the outdoors, pre-health professions, teaching and social justice, leadership, music and human services may choose to live in one of our six FYE Living Learning Communities.

Transfer students are not required to live on campus, but those who do must complete two semesters of on-campus living. Some transfers can choose a Transfer Living Community that features mentoring and special programs.
