ANSWERS

What forms of transportation are available on and off campus?
The student activity fee you pay supports a bus service which runs through campus and downtown every half hour. Service begins at 7AM and ends at between 12:30 - 1:30AM on weekdays. The schedule varies on weekends; the Student Association Office has schedules.

Oneonta Bus Lines charters buses to New York City and Long Island during student holiday and vacation time periods. Call (607) 432-4040 for the schedule. Greyhound Bus Lines (607) 432-0505/ 800-231-2222, or Trailways (607) 432-2661/ 800-858-8555 also provide transportation to and from Oneonta.

After dark, students may contact University Police for an on-campus escort from one location to another. There are also "Blue Light" phones conveniently located around campus for everyone's use in case of an emergency. The "Blue Light" phones are restricted to emergency use only and are directly linked to University Police.

How much does laundry cost?
No quarters are necessary for washing or drying laundry. The cost is included in room rental fees and limited to individual use based on residence hall occupation.

What telephone, network and cable services are available?
Telephone: Basic telephone service, local calls, and voice mail are provided upon request in each bedroom at no extra cost to the student. Please submit this form when you arrive on campus in the fall if you would like a land-line in your room. Phone service includes unlimited long distance service within the continental United States. Each student can apply with the Office of Telecommunications for an Authorization Code to make long distance calls overseas, resulting in a personal phone bill. Students should provide their own telephone. 2.4 GHz phones are not allowed in the residence halls as they interfere with Wi-Fi signal. More information can be found here or by calling our office at (607) 436-2577.
