To promote the health and well-being of all incoming exchange students as well as ensure that all exchange students have a dedicated quarantine/isolation space if they become ill, all incoming exchange students for the fall 2021 semester will be required to live in SUNY Geneseo-owned residence halls.

For a full-immersion experience, all exchange students are encouraged to live in university-operated residence halls.  However, as per the SUNY Geneseo Residency Requirement, third year students are permitted to reside off-campus.  Any exchange student choosing to live off-campus is encouraged to review the information from the Off-Campus Living website and explore housing options through the Housing Registry service.  Also, exchange students choosing to live off-campus are not required to purchase the university meal plan.

** Personal expenses differ considerably by person. Individual spending habits should be taken into consideration when estimating personal expenses.
