AOP Summer Orientation Program

During the four week summer orientation session held virtually from July 6, 2020 - July 29, 2020 you will learn about campus life as well as learn about the academic expectations of this learning community. You will also meet individually with an AOP advisor to register for fall classes.

This summer program is designed to help you make a successful transition into the college community. AOP and other college personnel will be on hand to guide you through a variety of academic and social experiences and activities, some of which will be integrated with the College's General Orientation. By the end of the summer program, you will:

  1. Be registered for the fall;
  2. Have a good introduction to AOP and to college life and services at Geneseo;
  3. Know other members of the Class of 2021;
  4. Gain confidence about starting college in the fall.

Register for the AOP Summer Orientation Program.


On behalf of the Department of Student Life, welcome to SUNY Geneseo! Your next step is letting us know your housing preferences for Fall 2017 by completing a housing agreement known as the “Roommate Preference Form.” This form is generated in our housing software, Symplicity Residence, 24 business hours after you pay your deposit. To sign on to the housing page, use your Geneseo username and password (your gmail ID), which were sent to you by the Admissions office after you paid your deposit.

Housing selection for new students at Geneseo includes all-first-year housing, transfer blocks, corridor, suite, and specialized communities, such as Tesla House, Dante House, the MIG (Medical Interest Group), Writers House, EcoHouse, and the Nassau Arts Community. If you want to be considered for EcoHouse, Writers House, or Tesla House, you will need to complete the special interest application questions on your Roommate Preference Form. This application is located on your Symplicity home screen. We honor as many requests as possible, but our residence halls all have limited places.

Roommate Preference Forms (RPFs) are due no later than June 1, 2017. Some requests for specialty housing have earlier deadlines, so please fill out your RPF as soon as possible. When you complete the RPF, you will be prompted to read our Residential License at All residential students are responsible for the rules and policies contained in the license, whether or not you submit the agreement on the RPF. Housing agreements are for the full academic year, although you will be billed separately for each semester. You will still receive housing if you do not complete your housing agreement, but our system won’t have information to match you with a roommate who shares your habits and preferences. We assign incoming students to housing in deposit date order and availability of space on campus.

If you have any questions about the assignment process or housing at Geneseo, feel free to visit the Campus Living website or contact us at (585) 245-5851 or A shortcut to Symplicity Residence is

You will be able to learn your housing assignment through your account on Symplicity Residence during the last week in July.
