SUNY Oneonta

Facilities

The main campus consists of 36 buildings located on 250 acres overlooking the City of Oneonta and the Susquehanna Valley. The 284-acre College Camp, located about two miles from campus, features an observatory, lodge, and outdoor recreational facilities. In nearby Cooperstown, on the shores of Otsego Lake, the College has 2,600 acres of woodland, pond, and shoreline that serve as an aquatic and terrestrial ecological research area for the Biological Field Station.

The James M. Milne Library is an attractive, five-story building where students access information and research materials in a technology-rich environment. The library provides access to traditional library services, including research help, circulation, and interlibrary loan, and offers learning support across the disciplines through the Center for Academic Development and Enrichment (CADE) satellite. Computers and wireless access are available throughout the building.

The Milne Technology Center, opened in 2008, offers over 100 Windows and Macintosh computers with a wide range of productivity software, digital video editing suites, and a presentation rehearsal room with self-video capability. Under one roof, students are able to retrieve information, write papers, and create presentations in a collaborative environment. Laptops are available for loan at the computer lab and printing services desk for use within the building.

Help is available in many forms. Professional library staff members offer research assistance online and in-person, as well as by telephone and e-mail. More in-depth research consultations are available by appointment. The Information Technology Help Desk, located within the Technology Center, provides walk-in, e-mail, and telephone support, and the Technology Instruction Program for Students (TIPS) offers one-on-one assistance for computing application needs.

The library is an integral part of the research and instructional activities of faculty and students. Library instruction is designed in collaboration with faculty to develop students’ information literacy skills in single classes and multi-class components. The library offers the one-credit course INTD 150: Library & Internet Research in both the fall and spring semesters.

The library’s Reading Room, located on the first floor, provides comfortable seating and leisure reading materials, only a short distance away from Jazzman’s Café, a popular meeting place where specialty coffees and light fare are served in an inviting atmosphere.

The College’s Fine Arts Building houses programs in the visual and performing arts. The north section of the building contains art studios, a computer art lab, and student artwork displayed along the walls. The Laurence B. Goodrich Theater and the Hamblin Arena Theater share the central section of the building with the Martin-Mullen Art Gallery and the Project Space Gallery. Extensive renovation of the Music Department's studios, music labs, rehearsal halls, and performance spaces was completed in 2011. Enhancements included soundproofing, acoustically tunable paneling, industry-grade recording equipment, and secure, climate controlled storage.

The Evelyn R. Hodgdon Instructional Resources Center (IRC) is designed to accommodate, support, and maintain current technology used in the instructional process on campus. It contains nine lecture halls for large classes and public service activities, two television studios used for the production of video programming both by students and professional staff, computer laboratories, and an instructional support center for faculty. The lecture halls are fully equipped "electronic classrooms" with complete computer, audio-visual, video, and large-screen projection capabilities.

Computer Facilities at the college provide a robust technology environment in support of student learning. A campus-wide Technology Initiative stresses the acquisition of computing skills and provides students universal access to computers and software. Supporting this commitment, the College has over 700 networked computers dedicated to student use in about 50 different labs on campus. Many of the labs, including those in each residence hall, are open seven days a week. Some computer labs support specific disciplines and offer specialized software.

All traditional classrooms are equipped with multimedia capabilities, including large-screen computer projection, slides, DVDs, CD ROMs, and other audio-visual applications to enrich the learning environment. The use of technology is supported by an Information Technology Help Desk, which provides consultation and assistance with hardware and software to students and employees of the College.

Every student on campus has access to the College’s email, web servers, and instructional support service through a high-speed data network. Wireless networking is available in all academic and residential buildings and some outdoor areas. Through the College’s local area network and the Internet, students can register for classes, complete coursework, check grades, pay bills, and complete many other tasks.

The Charles W. Hunt College Union is the focal point for many College activities, including student government, leadership programs, Greek affairs, feature films and comedy shows, literary and musical performances, and current affairs programming including speakers and exhibits, as well as faculty functions and educational conferences. It has conference rooms, a lecture hall/movie theater, a snack bar, multimedia lounge, dining room, club and student organization offices, and the Red Dragon Bookstore. The Union’s 900-seat ballroom is used for speakers, concerts, craft shows and special events.

The Outdoor Resource Center, located in Hulbert Hall, is the campus headquarters for the Outing Club and for a wide assortment of outdoor activities and wilderness programming.

One of the busiest places on the campus is the Alumni Field House, which features three basketball courts, a dance studio, an elevated indoor track, a weight training and fitness center, and two racquetball courts. The Dewar Arena in the field house hosts major academic, entertainment, and athletic events. In addition, the G. Hal Chase Physical Education Building contains a gymnasium, fitness center, handball/racquetball courts, a quarter-mile track, and a swimming pool. Tennis and basketball courts, athletic fields, and a lighted all-weather track and field are also available on campus for recreational and scheduled sports activities.

The College’s 15 residence halls provide housing for over 3,000 students, while five additional buildings have office space and classrooms for other academic departments and programs. Fitzelle Hall houses the Education, Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics, and Psychology Departments. Schumacher Hall contains classrooms for the History, English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Geography, Economics and Business, Philosophy, Political Science, and Sociology Departments. Two well-equipped Science Buildings provide laboratory, classroom, office, and research space for Biology, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Physics and Astronomy, while the Human Ecology Building provides its department with laboratories, a CAD computer lab, Child Development Center, and special purpose rooms.

The Morris Conference Center is a full-service, year-round residential conference center available to college, community, business, and professional organizations. The Center is noted for excellence in service, dining, and lodging, all at very attractive rates. The Center’s comfortable, climate-controlled conference rooms are equipped to support teleconferencing and a variety of audio-visual presentations. Computers with Internet access are also available.

The Center for Multicultural Experiences, located in Lee Hall, provides social, spiritual, and academic support to students of color and international students. Open to everyone at SUNY Oneonta, the CME is the perfect place for meetings, discussions, receptions, or quiet study.
