Substance-Free Housing at SUNY Plattsburgh

Substance-Free Housing is an inviting community that incorporates programs and activities for diverse interests.

If you want to live in an environment where individual decisions are respected and a unique sense of community exists, then this is the place to be!

Since the program began, demand for Substance-Free Housing has increased dramatically and now occupies most of Adirondack Hall.

Residents of this special housing sign a contract explicitly stating that they will live a completely substance-free lifestyle within the building and that they also will not return to the building in a state that might be disruptive to the substance-free environment.

So, What Is There to Do?

Well, there's a little bit of something for everyone. The Residence Hall Staff and Hall Councils provide a great variety of activities. Past programs have included:

  • karaoke
  • ice skating
  • sledding
  • retreats
  • movie series
  • pool tournaments
  • board games
  • wellness workshops
  • skiing, hiking, and much more!

Programs are especially abundant on Friday and Saturday nights when you're looking for varied activities and someone to do them with!

Who Lives In Substance-Free Housing?

Students from freshmen to seniors. Students from diverse backgrounds and geographic locations. Students with a variety of majors. Student government officers. Athletes. Greeks. Club officers and members. Musicians. They all come together to live here. Why don't you?
