Residential Life & Housing



Our residence halls are more than just a place to sleep and hang your clothes. They’re places to learn about yourself and others, while meeting all kinds of people – some from right down the road, others from around the world. Living in one of our residence halls lets you experience different lifestyles, ideas, and points of view and get involved in campus life.

SUNY Poly offers two types of student housing options. Oriskany Residence Hall is home to more than 250 full-time, first-year students. Its suite-style living experience features spacious two-story living areas joined by spiral staircases. Students enjoy the comfort and convenience of study areas, a common kitchen and laundry rooms. Oriskany’s unique design gives students a fun and rewarding living-learning experience. 

Adirondack and Mohawk both offer common living areas within each suite. Mohawk has single rooms, while Adirondack has both single and double bedrooms.
