Residence Hall Room Rates

2016-2017

  • Most rooms on campus at SUNY Plattsburgh are double occupancy; that is, they were designed to accommodate two people. Only 3% of our rooms are designed single occupancy. Therefore, they are reserved for medical singles.
  • If a double is occupied by one student, we refer to this as a double-as-single. If a double is occupied by three students, we refer to this as a triple room. Note that in a triple, all furnishings can be "tripled" with the exception of the closets because they are built-in. Each student will have 1/3 of the closet space unless all students in a room agree on other arrangements.
  • For 2016-2017, the five apartments on campus on the 8th and 9th floors of Banks are reserved for graduate students and seniors.
  • Vacation housing applies to any night before or after occupancy dates defined in the official Academic Calendar. The cost of vacation housing is $15 per person per night. Students must contact the Housing & Residence Life office to determine if vacation housing is available.
  • The standard double rate for 2016-2017 is $3,820 per semester. Students residing in a non-renovated building (Adirondack, Banks, Kent, Macomb, Whiteface) will receive a $180 per semester discount.

Triples

In situations where all students who are requesting housing cannot be accommodated in double occupancy rooms, emergency triples (i.e., double rooms occupied by three people) may be assigned. Credits for fall semester triples are applied to spring invoices for continuing students. The credit will be a maximum of $500. Once there is space on campus to accommodate all students in double rooms the Housing and Residence Life office will communicate that date to students. This date will be used to establish the amount of refund to be credited to students as follows:

Begin Date End Date Status
Aug. 27, 2016 Sept. 3, 2016 No Refund
Sept. 4, 2016 Sept. 24, 2016 $125
Sept. 25, 2016 Oct. 22, 2016 $250
Oct. 23, 2016 Nov. 19, 2016 $375
Nov. 20, 2016 Dec. 17, 2016 $500

Students electing to stay in a triple room after the date established by the Housing and Residence Life office will not be eligible for any additional refund.
