Registrar :: Residence Halls :: Residence Life
The Office of the Registrar provides the following services to students: supplies course schedules, including classroom assignments and final examination information; registers students for fall, intersession, spring and summer courses; verifies student enrollment and time status for loans, awards, scholarships, and employers; provides student transcripts upon written request from the student.
Students may examine their records in the Office of the Registrar upon request. Also, see the Student Records Policy in the Policies and Procedures Section of this handbook to determine the appropriate individual to contact regarding other records.
Geneseo’s living and learning
facilities include several styles of residence halls: corridor, suite, and
townhouse. Among their residential
choices, students may elect to live in an all first-year building, a transfer
student community, or a residential college house. All residences are open to both men and women. In corridor-style
halls, men and women are assigned in clusters close to shared men’s or women’s
bathrooms. This means that most
halls house both men and women on each floor. In most suite buildings (in which students share a double
bedroom and a common room), students choose a 4, 5, 6, or 8-person suite with a
same-gender group. In Genesee Hall
and in the Saratoga Townhouses, groups may be mixed-gender, including (in
double rooms) roommates selected by each other regardless of gender. No student is assigned to a gender-neutral
suite or townhouse, however, without requesting this option.
Allegany, Erie, Genesee, Ontario,
Putnam, Seneca, and Wyoming halls are suite-style buildings in the North
Village, predominantly housing upper-level residents (sophomores, juniors, and
seniors). These halls include kitchens in each quadrangle and additional quiet
study space on each floor. The average capacity for suite-style buildings is
200 students, but Putnam and Seneca, homes of EcoHouse and Writers House,
provide a more intimate environment for about 85 students who apply to live in
each house. Writers House includes
a classroom where academic courses may be taught. Wyoming accommodates international students who need housing
over Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks.
Livingston, Steuben, and Jones are
corridor-style buildings in the Central Village. Jones hall houses first-year
residents exclusively while the other halls welcome both first-year and
upper-level students in double occupancy rooms. Monroe Hall, which will re-open after renovations in January
2013, will have a few suites and junior suites in addition to traditional
corridor-style double rooms. Monroe
includes a classroom where academic courses may be taught. Monroe will also offer single rooms for
any student whose medical need for a single room has been documented through
the Office of Disability Services.
Steuben accommodates international students who need housing over
Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks.
Nassau, Niagara, Onondaga, Suffolk,
and Wayne halls are located in the South Village. Nassau and Suffolk halls are suite-style and accommodate
first-year students, transfer students, and upper-level residents. Niagara, Wayne
and Onondaga are corridor-style buildings. Onondaga and Wayne house first-year students exclusively. Wayne Hall is also the home to Dante
House, a residential college house for first-year students, including
first-year Edgar Fellows, international students, and students who prefer a
smaller community of committed scholars.
While most South Village halls accommodate 200 residents each, Onondaga
houses 350 first-year students and Dante House has only 100 residents. Dante House also accommodates
international students who need housing over Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring
Saratoga Terrace, which opened in
2001, consists of 4 and 5-person townhouse units. The townhouses are the only residence halls that offer
private bedrooms to the general residential population. Each townhouse unit has
a shared living room, full kitchen, and two full baths. The townhouses accommodate
returning upper-level (primarily senior and junior) students.
