Returning Students

Undergraduate students make up over 90 percent of our current on-campus residential population. Per the Terms and Conditions of Student Housing, freshmen and sophomores are required to live on-campus. With a two-year University housing requirement the housing operation continually strives to improve the residential living environment for all students through facility renewal and building upgrade projects.

There are a variety of housing options available for returning students to live on-campus in University housing. The diversity of room types and locations fit the needs of most every student. Opportunities are available for single, double, triple, quad, and even six-person accommodations. Along with the multiple variations in room types, there are also numerous meal plan options for students to choose from.

Please be sure to familiarize yourself with several important dates related to living in University housing. Our online calendar of important dates is continuously being updated and will help to keep you informed of any upcoming deadlines related to housing and/or meal plans. Also remember to keep your syr.edu email account up-to-date as the Housing, Meal Plan, and I.D. Card operation uses email as an official line of communication with students. We use email frequently to send updates and notifications regarding the housing reservation process, wait list opportunities, meal plan change deadlines, etc.
