On-Campus Living

Check-In and Move-In

  • Spring 2023 Winter Welcome: Please visit the Travel and Parking webpage for complete details.
  • Fall 2023 Syracuse Welcome: Students must have a housing assignment before selecting a move-in day/time. Selections for move-in day/time will take place during mid- to late July, as soon as housing assignments are shared with new students. Details regarding the selection process will be emailed to students’ Syracuse University Email Account (i.e., @syr.edu).

Once you receive your housing and roommate assignment, it is recommended that you explore building floor plans. All student rooms are furnished with a bed (extra-long twin 36”x80”), dresser, desk, desk chair and closet or wardrobe for each student.


Housing, Meal Plan, and ID Card Services will notify students of their housing assignment and roommate around mid-July through their Syracuse email address (i.e. @syr.edu). Move-In Registration details are included in that email.

Room and roommate assignments will be emailed to students. Assignments reflect a random placement into one of 16 residential facilities on both North and South Campus. All new first-year students are placed on North Campus while new transfer students are traditionally placed into the transfer student community within the South Campus SkyHalls.

We strongly encourage you to contact your roommate to become acquainted and begin a discussion on sharing a room. You will have some important things to discuss and consider as you begin a relationship with your new roommate. Once you arrive and are settled into your room, you will have follow-up discussions and complete a roommate agreement, administered through Student Living. We realize that sharing a living space with someone new can create anxiety and stress for some, but we’re hopeful that you will be able to connect with your new roommate prior to coming to campus and get to know them.

Please understand that the University will not grant room changes for any reason prior to your on-campus arrival. Collectively as a University we believe that the residential college experience is about learning new things and meeting/living with people who are different from you. We think that you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the connections that you can make when you step outside of your comfort zone.

Residence halls will be prepared to begin receiving packages so you can lighten the load of your trip to Syracuse! The residence halls will begin receiving packages on August 19, 2022. Do not ship items prior to this date.

Your shipping and mailing address is shown on your housing assignment confirmation. You will be assigned a mailbox at your residence hall check-in. Please note, you should not include “Syracuse University” in your mailing address. For exact street addresses of residential facilities, please visit the Residence Hall webpage.
