Village Room Selection

Village Room Selection Quick Tips (PDF) Vacancy and Room Change Policy

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 academic year.

All current first year students are required to live on-campus for next year. Please refer to the University Housing Policy for details. SUNY Oswego students must adhere to this policy.

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. Students who are not required to live on-campus 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.
