During the late 1960s into 1970, new campus residences Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Oneida were constructed, housing more students between them than had attended Oswego before the college joined the SUNY system in 1948. These residence halls reflected the names of four of the five nations that make up the Iroquois Confederacy and whose culture has proven greatly influential throughout the centuries.
Onondaga Hall offers suite-style living to upper-class students. This suite setup allowed Onondaga to be the first co-ed residence on campus in 1975. Suites were all-female or all-male with mixed residents among the floor. An experiment at the time, Onondaga proved young men and women could live together harmoniously and opened the door for other residence halls to accept a co-ed living environment. Today, Onondaga houses 600 students. With three bedrooms, a common living area and bathroom, each suite accommodates six residents.
The defining feature of Cayuga Hall is its figure-eight shape. This unique design allows the hall to house 400 students on four floors.
Residents of Seneca Hall boast one of the best views from campus of Lake Ontario. Students on the west side of the buildings are treated nightly to a beautiful sunset over the lake. Seneca houses 600 students over ten floors and offers two lounges per floor, one kitchen lounge, game lounge, and a 24-hour study room.
Oneida Hall sits farthest from the academic quad and accommodates 450 students. The two dining halls that serve new campus residents are Littlepage and Pathfinder, each named for novels written by James Fenimore Cooper for whom the Cooper Dining Center is named. Littlepage serves Oneida and Onondaga while Pathfinder serves Seneca and Cayuga halls.
The so-called "New Campus" is also home to two large tennis courts open to students for recreation, the University Police office in Pathfinder, the Pathfinder Fitness Center, Sept. 11 Memorial Garden and Glimmerglass Lagoon surrounded by the Community Recognition Walkway.
