Returning Student Housing Process
BearPAWS will go live on Friday, February 3rd to start the returning student housing process for Fall 2017. In order to access BearPAWS, students need to pay a $50.00 housing deposit. All students should review the general housing instructions below as well as the specific instructions for the type of housing accommodations you want to have for next year.

- Townhouse and Apartment (PDF)
- Singles (PDF)
- Suites (PDF)
- Stay In Current Room (PDF)
- Class Night and Theme Housing (PDF)
Room assignments for the Fall 2017 semester will be able to be seen on your BearPAWS account starting August 1st. If you do not know your roommate, it is recommended that you contact them prior to your arrival to campus.
All campus residents must have a PACES meal plan. Students who have already met the residency requirement and are living in campus apartments (Lehman North Houses 1 & 2) or Townhouses are exempt from this requirement. First and second year students residing in the Townhouses or Lehman North apartments still need to have a meal plan. Specific questions regarding meal plans should be addressed to the PACES Office at (315-267-2658) in Merritt Hall.
Exemption from Housing
If you would like to live off campus, please fill out the Housing Exemption Form (found on "Residential Living" page).
Special Needs Housing
If you have a condition(s) that require special needs housing, please see the Medical Housing Process and Forms for more information (found on "Residential Living" page).
If you expect to student teach outside of the Potsdam area for part of the 2015-2016 academic year and would like a residence hall assignment for a portion of the year, please indicate this when you sign up in BearPAWS.
Students will be denied access to the housing process on BearPAWS if you have any hold on your student account for any reason. Also, students who have lost their housing priority due to student conduct sanctions will select a room at the end of the housing process on the last night.
