Residential Communities

Living on Campus

SUNY Oswego is more than just a beautiful place to live. From the moment students enroll until graduation, we are committed to creating inclusive and supportive student communities to help you flourish during your college career.

Oswego’s residential environment plays an important role in each student’s overall college experience and fosters friendships that often last their entire college careers and beyond. Living in a residence hall on campus puts you close to all the action and provides a convenient place to study and relax. 

lifetime ConnectionsLive Where You Learn

It doesn't matter in which hall you live, rest assured there are tons of interesting and fun things to do. In most residence hall rooms, there is a bed, mattress, dresser, desk, chair, floor lamp, and closet for each resident. Coordinating the furnishings and arrangements of your room is a good opportunity to become better acquainted with your new roommate(s).
