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.

Rest assured, regardless of your residence hall, there are plenty of interesting and fun activities to engage in. Each residence hall room comes equipped with a bed, dresser, desk, chair, floor lamp, and closet for each resident. The furnishings may vary depending on the type of room—be it an apartment, suite, or traditional setup. Coordinating the furnishings and arrangements of your room is a great opportunity to become better acquainted with your new roommate(s).
