Many undergraduate students at The College at Brockport choose to live on campus for all, or at least part, of their college career. In fact, all freshmen at the College are required to live on campus, unless they are commuting from a parent's or legal guardian's home.
Living on campus has a lot of benefits. First, the residence halls on campus are furnished -- your room will have a bed, desk, desk chair, dresser and closet for each person living in that room. Also, the residential areas on campus are in a reasonably secure environment and are convenient to your classes and all on-campus activities. You will not need to worry about transportation to campus, which can sometimes be difficult for off-campus students late at night and during the winter.
On-campus housing also offers the option of participating in a Living Learning Community during your freshman year. These communities bring together freshmen with similar academic and co-curricular interests. Students in these communities participate in a variety of activities and programs both on and off campus. Of particular interest to international students is the Brockport Global Village, a group of students from the United States and other countries throughout the world.
Housing on campus is limited and may not always be available (Please note: The College at Brockport does not offer on-campus housing for graduate students or families. If you are a graduate student or plan to bring your family, you will need to find adequate off-campus housing). If you have not already done so, you may request information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have paid the $100 USD housing deposit, you will be able to complete the online housing application. You must complete a housing application well in advance of your arrival at The College at Brockport. You are not assured a room on campus unless you have been notified in writing by the Office of Residential Life/Learning Communities after you complete the housing application.
