This residence hall opened in the fall of 2001. The name was chosen to recognize the Native American tribes' ongoing influence in this region of New York. Esopus Hall is a traditional corridor style residence hall, with rooms designed for double occupancy. All rooms are wired for all technology connections. Esopus contains several study and recreation lounges, a computer room, fitness center, and laundry facilities. Esopus Hall is also the home of the Communities at New Paltz program. Communities at New Paltz is a specifically designed Living/Learning community program for First-Year students. This program offers three distinct living experiences featuring specific inter-disciplinary themes: Leadership, Health & Wellness, and Service Learning. First-Year students who choose to participate in one of these interest-based communities will connect with other students who share similar interests, while gaining an introduction to the larger SUNY New Paltz campus and the surrounding New Paltz community. Communities at New Paltz will give students a unique opportunity to learn, explore, and connect with others in the context of an engaging academic and residential community. Participation in this program requires students to live within Esopus Hall and take a 1-credit community course with other participants in the program.
