Residence Life

Residence Life administers the College's residential housing program and offers students a variety of choices for living on campus.

Among other options, students may elect to live in an all first-year cohort, a transfer student community, or a residential college house. All residences are open to all Geneseo students.

At SUNY Geneseo, students have the choice to live in a community where roommates and suitemates can share a room and or living space that is not limited by their biological sex. Residence Life does not place restrictions in that regard, therefore residents are able to select their roommate without parameters on their gender expression, their gender identity, or the biological sex assigned at their birth.

To help students find their niche socially and academically, every residence hall has a unique community experience designed to engage and connect its residents.

Each of Geneseo's Residence Halls are intentional spaces that function to contribute to student learning. Browse our housing options to find the community that's right for you.
