Residence Hall Overview

While Syracuse University residence halls feature a variety of layouts and configurations, Summer College follows a set of criteria for setting up the living environment:

  • Summer College residence halls are 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 halls.
  • Students will be randomly placed in single, double, or split double rooms.
  • There is air-conditioning in the lounges, but NOT in the dorm rooms.
  • Each room is equipped with a bed, dresser, desk, chair, and a wardrobe/closet per student.

Roommate Assignments

If a roommate is not requested (see below), Summer College follows Syracuse University’s lead when it comes to housing assignments. The housing office assigns a residence hall and roommate for Summer College students, taking into consideration any special living opportunities and mutual roommate requests indicated on the Summer College application. The housing assignment system is designed to promote a fair and equitable system for all Summer College students that is inclusive and promotes students from different backgrounds to live together.

Roommate Request:

Summer College students may request a roommate by filling out the “Roommate Request” field on the SlideRoom application. Please note that both parties must separately request each other as their roommate.

If you have already submitted your application without a roommate request but wish to add one, email sumcoll@syr.edu with the name of the student you would like to be roomed with along with the other student’s program name. The subject line should read “Roommate Request.” Roommate requests will be considered if both parties separately request each other as their roommate.
