Housing Selection and Requirements

Living on campus can be one of the best experiences of a college student's life. The focus of our student living program is to complement one's formal classroom education by offering students the "total college experience" for personal growth and development.

All incoming first-year students are required to live in College residence halls for their first two years, unless residing at home with their legal parent or guardian who live within a 30 mile radius. All transfer students are required to have lived on a campus for 4 semesters. This means incoming second year transfers are required to reside on campus unless residing at home with their legal parent or guardian.

*Please note that all new student information applies to transfer students.  The only additional information that applies to transfer students is the ability to place your name on the single room waiting list.  To do so, please refer to the Residential Waiting List section of the Policies, Processes, and Forms section at the bottom of this page.

Welcome to Utica College!  You are now about to become a member of our residential community.  It is our hope that your experience within the residence halls is more than just a place to lay your head after classes.  We hope that you will involve yourself as an active member of this community in order to help us maintain a positive, safe, and worthwhile residential experience.
