Campus Housing & Community Living

The residence hall community is truly where it is at. You’ll get connected, find support, and be a part of the campus. Students are required to live on campus for 2 academic years (4 semesters). Nearly all freshmen and sophomore, and many junior, senior and graduate-level students live on campus.

Housing On Campus

Housing at SUNY Plattsburgh offers a safe, secure, well-maintained environment.

In our residence halls, we address the academic, personal and social needs of our students. Our residence halls provide opportunities for students to engage in leadership roles, interact with other students by attending activities, seek academic support services such as advising and tutoring, or just hang out with friends in lounges equipped with TVs, pool tables, ping-pong tables, and a variety of other fun stuff! Living on campus is fun, exciting and challenging! We have a strong sense of community, which values understanding and respect, and students play a central role in creating it.

We house students in double rooms and limited single rooms. We sometimes will need to place some first year students in triples based on the spaces we have available, but guarantee that the first 750 incoming students to apply for housing, will not be placed in a triple.

Stay on Campus, Stay in School!
