Current Students Room Selection

All current students may participate in the Room Selection Process starting in the spring semester. This online process allows students to reserve their residence for the upcoming fall semester.

All current first year students are required to live on campus for next year. Students who are not required to live on campus next year should only participate in Room Selection (Village Selection and Residence Hall Room Selection) if they are 100% sure they want to live on campus for the entire upcoming academic year.

Participation in Room Selection guarantees the student on-campus housing for the entire academic year; AND, obligates the student to live on campus for the full academic year. If you're thinking of moving off campus, before you sign a lease, make sure you're eligible to live off campus; see the College Housing Policy.

Students can view their housing assignment information at myHousing.oswego.edu.

The College Housing Policy

The College believes that immersion in the educational environment is the preferred experience for new students. Therefore, all full-time undergraduate students who will need to establish an Oswego-area residence in order to attend the college are required to live on campus to the extent that facilities are available and utilized*.

Students generally exempted from this requirement are those who:

  • will continue to reside with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s);
  • will continue to reside in their official residence, 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 in this category must submit a Request for Exemption form available on the department’s web site and at 303 Culkin Hall.

*Due to current facility availability, students who fulfill specific criteria will be considered as having fulfilled the Housing Requirement and would no longer be required to live in college housing; these students are those who first enrolled at SUNY Oswego as:

  • first year/freshmen students and have lived in residence 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.

-or-

  • transfer students and have lived in residence 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.
