Room assignments for Fall 2015 will be viewable on BearPAWS starting August 1st. Changes to roommate assignments and building placements will not be accepted after this date.
For Fall 2015, new students can arrive to campus anytime after 10:00 am on Friday, August 28, 2015. Returning students can return to campus starting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 29th. All students should go to your assigned Residence Hall to check-in and get keys.
SUNY Potsdam has a residency requirement for new students. Those that enter as new first year students are asked to live on campus for the first 2 years or 4 semesters. More information about this is listed under "Housing Policies".
When students request on campus housing, you are asked to agree to our housing license. The Housing License is for the entire academic year, both fall and spring semesters.
