Meal Plan

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).

Student Teachers

If you expect to student teach outside of the Potsdam area for part of the next 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.
