Housing Options

10-month halls

The following residence halls remain open during academic year break times (i.e. winter recess and spring break), unless otherwise designated by the Director of Residence Life. All other buildings are closed during the breaks.

Students who need to stay on campus during these times must live in one of the 10-month buildings. International students, athletes, and residents who will student teach during the spring semester are strongly encouraged to sign up for one of these halls. Those students who stay during the winter break will be charged a daily rate. There is no extra charge to stay during spring break. Overnight guests are not permitted during breaks.

Alternate Housing Requests

 

A student with a disability can submit a request for alternate housing arrangements. (Wheelchair accessible rooms, audible alarms, etc.)

By providing the Housing Accommodation Verification materials to a qualified diagnostician/clinician(s), the student is granting permission for a member of the Housing Accommodation Committee at SUNY New Paltz to contact and consult with that professional regarding the student’s need for the accommodation.

 All requests will be submitted to Residence Life no later than July 1st for the fall semester and Dec. 1st for the spring semester. Complete requests will be reviewed by the Housing Review Committee. The review process may take two to six weeks. Requests received after the deadlines may be put on a waitlist if space to meet the request is no longer available.

 

In general, a diagnosis of ADHD, learning disability, or anxiety/depression (in and of themselves) is not sufficient grounds for obtaining an alternate housing arrangement.

 

Students will be notified via email (Hawkmail address) of the Housing Review Committee's decision.

 

The application is under review and will be available here on May 15th.  Please contact the Residence Life Office if you would like to be added to a list of students the application will be emailed to when it is available.

 

 

Emotional Support Animals

 

Students with a diagnosed need for a service or support animal must submit an application supported with documentation.  This includes:

  • An application to be completed by the student.
  • A form to be completed by the diagnostician explaining why the student needs to have the animal on campus.
  • A form to be completed by a veterinarian affirming that the animal is healthy and that its immunizations are up to date.
  • A guidelines document to be completed by the student and their roommate(s) and/or suitemates that outlines their responsibilities and restrictions in caring for the animal while on campus.

All requests will be submitted to Residence Life no later than July 1st for the fall semester and Dec. 1st for the spring semester. Complete requests will be reviewed by the Housing Review Committee. The review process may take two to six weeks. Requests received after the deadlines may be put on a waitlist if space to meet the request is no longer available.
