STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING THE New Student Housing Application

Before logging in to myHousing to submit your New Student Housing Application, explore our varied housing options at: www.oswego.edu/reslife/residential-communities

Please Note: If you are majoring in science, math, or education with a science or math concentrate you may want to consider the free Math Success Camp program that runs the week before fall classes start. For more information, go to https://www.oswego.edu/stem-pipeline/math-success-camp-2017

Please consider ranking the following residence halls as your preferred halls: Funnelle, Seneca, Cayuga, Hart, or Johnson. Living with other math camp attendees will help you build community throughout the program and the fall semester. Please note Johnson and Hart have program requirements associated with them.
