Residence Hall Information:

Summer College students will be living in Shaw Hall for summer 2016!  The address is as follows:

201 Euclid Ave

Syracuse, NY 13210

While most SU halls have a variety of layouts and configurations, Summer College follows a set of criteria for setting up the living environment:

  • The selected hall is dedicated exclusively to Summer College students.
  • Each floor will be assigned as a male floor or a female floor.
  • RAs (Resident Advisors) occupy rooms evenly distributed throughout the hall.

Roommate Assignments

All residential students will most likely have a roommate for the duration of their program. Students are assigned randomly and will be informed of their roommate’s name and email address in the month of June, approximately one to two weeks prior to their arrival to campus.

Students may also request a roommate by emailing sumcoll@syr.edu with the name of the student they would like to be roomed with along with their program name. The subject line should read “Roommate Request.”

*The last day to email a Roommate Request will be Friday, June 10th, as to allow time for roommate pairings.

Dining Information

Students will be dining in the Ernie Davis Dining Hall. The meal plan includes 19 meals per week, and the hours are posted on the right-side of this page.
