Returning student room selection is underway. Please click here for a list of rooms available to returning students for the the 2015-2016 academic year.

It’s easy to find your home away from home at SUNY Oneonta.

We have 15 residence halls, conveniently located to dining halls and academic buildings. Our residential life community is very active, with all kinds of ways to get involved—from joining hall government or working as a night host or resident advisor, to attending one of the many social and educational events offered throughout the year.

Starting in fall 2015, the price of living on campus will be fixed for each entering class. Under our new housing rate structure, students can choose from three living arrangements (subject to availability), with rates guaranteed for your remaining years at Oneonta as long as you remain in campus housing.

SUNY Oneonta requires freshmen to live on campus for four semesters, with a few exceptions. All freshmen live in one of our double-style First Year Experience residence halls, which feature special programming and support designed to ease the social and academic transition to college life.

Transfer students are not required to live on campus, but those who do must complete two semesters of on-campus living. Some transfers can choose a new Transfer Living Community that features mentoring and special programs.
