College Housing Policy

College Housing Policy

SUNY Oswego believes, based on our own and national research, that living in the residence halls:

  • provides students with crucial connections to campus resources, 
  • supports their successful transition to college, and
  • allows students to find important engagement opportunities that are both fun, but also supplement to learning that occurs in the classroom.   

Therefore, all full-time undergraduate students are required to live on campus, as directed by the College Housing Policy.

Students who first enroll at SUNY Oswego as first-year students are required to live on campus at SUNY Oswego for four (4) consecutive semesters (fall and spring) if admitted in the fall or three (3) semesters if admitted in the spring.

Students who first enroll at SUNY Oswego as transfer students are required to live on campus at SUNY Oswego for two (2) consecutive semesters (fall and spring) if admitted in the fall or one (1) semester if admitted in the spring. 

Students should complete their housing application online at myhousing.oswego.edu beginning March 1 for fall enrollment and November 1 for spring enrollment. 

Students may request an exemption from the requirements of the College Housing policy when they can provide evidence that they:

  • Will continue to reside with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within 30 miles of campus;
  • Will continue to reside in their official residence within 30 miles of campus, which is separate from that of their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), and at which they had resided for at least three consecutive months prior to their acceptance of the admissions offer from the college;
  • Are married; or
  • Are twenty-one (21) years of age as of September 1 for fall admission or January 1 for spring admission.

Students that meet one or more of the above criteria may request an exemption from the college housing policy by submitting a formal request at myhousing.oswego.edu. Exemption requests should be submitted within 48 hours of committing to attend SUNY Oswego, or as soon as possible. Late requests may result in students being assigned to on-campus housing during which time housing charges may accrue.
