There are many students who choose to transfer to SUNY Oswego but not every transfer student decides to live on campus. Some students choose to commute from another city like Syracuse or Watertown or live off campus within the city of Oswego.  Being a commuter student can make your transition even more challenging than normal and may lead you to have more questions than if you were living on campus.  Below is a list of several links and contact information that may be helpful to an Oswego student who has chosen to commute to our campus.
