Step 1: Pay Your Housing Deposit
Note: This web page is designed for new students who are starting at SUNY Geneseo.
How to pay your housing deposit:
Since you are a new student, you should refer to your recent letter from the Admissions Office for housing deposit payment instructions. This letter officially welcomes you to SUNY Geneseo, but it also prompts you to access your KnightWeb account with your unique Geneseo I.D. and password. If you want to verify that you already paid your housing deposit , feel free to telephone the Residence Life Office at (585) 245-5726. We will be happy to check our housing deposit records for you.
How much is the housing deposit?
The housing deposit is $150. Please note that there is an additional $150 tuition deposit as well
How your housing deposit will affect your housing assignment:
We will place you in residence hall rooms according to your housing deposit date. This means that, if you paid your housing deposit before most other new students, you will be placed in your residence hall before most other new students, and it is likelier that we will be able to accommodate your housing preferences. The date of your housing deposit payment will determine the likelihood that you will be assigned to a triple room, too. Students who pay their housing deposits the latest are assigned to triple rooms.
