Residential Facilities

interior dorm room

With 21 residence halls Syracuse University has accommodations to meet all of your residential needs. Browse our information about specifics related to each of our residential facilities.

Housing assignments for all new students are random at Syracuse University. New students may not preference a specific residence hall or room-type. Upper-class students will self-select their housing during our annual Room Selection held each spring.

Students are required to live on-campus for their first two years of enrollment.

Our residential facilities are maintained by FIXit which is part of Campus Facilities Administration & Services.

Tobacco-Free Campus

To help ensure a healthy, productive, respectful environment in which to work, learn and live, Syracuse University is committed to providing a smoke- and tobacco-free campus. While smoking is currently banned in all University buildings, this policy also prohibits smoking and the use of all tobacco products on property owned, operated, or controlled by the University, indoors and out. It applies to all University students, staff, and faculty, as well as all alumni, volunteers, visitors, contractors and vendors.  “Smoking” is defined as inhaling, exhaling, burning, or carrying any lighted or heated cigar, cigarette, pipe, or other device designed to accomplish, enable or imitate the act of smoking, including electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), hookahs, and all vapor/vaping devices.
