3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Generally campus housing is fine. Dormitories are about the quality of the average university. However the school is in the process of renovating many residence halls, and these buildings have a lot of perks. In addition, our RHSA, Hall Government, and NRHH organizations are very active and make on campus living more interactive. Otherwise, residence life is average.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in gage which is the athletic dorm although I am not an athlete nor are any if my friends that live there. Gage is great but it's known for being the party dorm. This means the bathrooms are always gross with throw up on the weekends and it's loud but the rules are never In forced

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are 3 or 4 different kinds of room styles you can choose here. I never ventured out of corridor style and I was pretty happy. I had one roommate each time. Students are given priority to stay in their current rooms, which is nice. If you read the complicated schedule for signing up everything will be fine.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus is the perfect size where the dorms are in good proximity to food, athletic center, and classes. College Hall is the farthest from everything though.

On-campus housing at SUNY New Paltz consists of pretty typical college dorms. There are two different styles of dorm halls: suite and corridor. If you choose to live in (or are placed in) suite dorms, your room will be grouped with two or three other rooms, all of which share a common room and a bathroom with two sinks, a shower, and a toilet. It's like living in an apartment with five roommates, which is really cool. However, maintenance only comes to clean once a month, so you and your roommates are responsible for the tidiness of the suite.

If you live in a corridor-style hall, maintenance staff cleans the bathrooms every day. Corridor bathrooms are shared by everyone on your floor; they generally have three shower stalls, one bathtub, nine sinks, and four toilet stalls. There are also lounges on each floor that have a kitchen and a microwave. On-campus living can be awesome, especially in one's underclassman years, but most juniors and seniors agree that off-campus living is preferable. No RAs (resident assistants) or rowdy freshmen to deal with!
