Living and learning

Living in a residence hall at SUNY Oswego will be one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences of a lifetime. At Oswego, the residential environment plays a major role in each student's overall college experience. Living in a residence hall:

  • Helps students get connected with the campus.
  • Allows them to get to know students and staff from all walks of life.
  • Fosters close friendships which frequently develop and are maintained for the rest of their college career and well into the future.
  • Provides endless opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. Residents will learn about the individuals with whom they live, about their differences, similarities and what each person brings to the community.
  • Offers opportunities to attend regularly scheduled educational programs, participate in community activities and/or community service projects. Not only will these activities help you through college, they will be experiences that will help you through life.
  • Engages students in spontaneous learning which may happen when two residents have a discussion about a current event while structured learning happens at an evening program or campus event.
  • For more information about structured learning outside the classroom, check out Oswego State's Residence Life Curriculum or Structured Learning.
