What About...

This might be the first time you're living away from home. We know you and your parents might have a few questions about residence hall life.

A wide variety of made-to-order items are available on campus! The Byte Machine and Costa Coffee Machine are also available 24/7 to Conklin residents in the Conklin Hall Atrium. All students living in the residence hall must choose a meal plan.

After your application is complete, you'll be able to create a profile and search for roommates.

Double rooms range from $4,506 - $4,768 per semester. Single rooms are $5,518 per semester, but those are reserved for RAs and returning students. You'll also need to select a meal plan.

We want you to feel right at home, but there are some things we prefer you leave there. See our list of what to bring and what not to and also check out our visual guide to prohibited items


New students from counties other than Dutchess and Putnam must have a high school average of at least 70 (or a minimum TASC score of 2800) to live in Academic Housing. Students who have less than that and live in Dutchess or Putnam will be evaluated on an individual basis. Transfer students with a GPA below 2.0 will also be considered on an individual basis.



Live in the beautiful Hudson Valley

Named "one of the world's greatest places" by TIME magazine, the Hudson Valley is home to historic river towns, art, culture and recreation. Live on campus and be at the center of it all!
