If you are a student with a disability and would like to request housing accommodations, please contact Student Disability Services, Van Hoesen Hall, Room B-1, or call 607-753-2066 before the RSP deadlines.

How do I sign up for a room?

Once you have paid your deposit and completed your RSP Form, you will receive a time ticket to choose a room. Log on to myRedDragon at your assigned time and complete the steps found here.

I selected a room in a suite/quad/apartment. What does "I am looking for suite/apartment/quad mates" mean?

If you select this box, it lets potential room/suite/quad mates know that you do not have someone in mind you’d like to live with. This information shows on the rooms available list. Someone is still able to sign up for a room in the suite/quad/apartment even if it is not checked. Back to top.

Can I check my room assignment once I've completed RSP?

You should check your room assignment and can do so at any time by going to the residence life and housing section on the Student tab in myRedDragon and selecting “Check your room assignment”. Back to top.

Can I change my assignment?

Yes. You will have several options to change or swap rooms.

During RSP

  • Up to four changes can be made to your room assignment
  • Changes must be completed by 4 p.m. on April 9, 2013
  • You can only make changes to your assignment, not your roommate’s (even if you pulled them into the room assignment)
  • Changes can only be made when your time ticket is active
  • To swap a room: Use the “Swapping Room” feature to change rooms:
    • Select “Choose Your Room”
    • Select “Use this if ‘swapping’ rooms with someone”
    • You will be temporarily unassigned
    • Only one person needs to use this feature

After RSP

  • You can make changes to your assignment on June 12 and 13

Who is eligible to select a room?

Any SUNY Cortland students currently living on campus or at West Campus Apartments and any students doing fieldwork, student teaching, internship or studying abroad with their last Cortland address as a residence hall.

What is the time ticket based on?

Credit Hours: Each student’s credit hours toward graduation as of December. Students with the most credit hours choose first.

Dean’s List Points: An extra three points will be added to your total credit hours for each semester you have been on the Dean’s List at SUNY Cortland.

an I move on campus after moving off?

Once you move off campus, you are no longer guaranteed on-campus housing. You can contact residence life and housing to place your name on a waiting list if spaces become available. Back to top.

Is the $150 Room Deposit refundable?

For continuing students moving off campus or withdrawing after the room deposit is paid, the policy is: residence life and housing must receive written notification by May 1 for full $150 refund; by July 1 for $100 refund, and by Aug. 1 for $50 refund. Starting on Aug. 2 there is no refund of the $150 room deposit. Students with waivers will be billed the amounts listed above based on the date they notify residence life and housing that they are moving off campus.

Is there a room deposit waiver?

Student staff members, EOP students, C.U.R.E. students and RHA/NRHH executive officers will receive a room deposit waiver in the mail. This must be turned in by the $150 room deposit deadline. You will be billed for the deposit.

Can I sign up for a room with a new student?

Yes. Instead of choosing a room you can select to be assigned (TBA) on your RSP Housing Form. You will not select a room during RSP. Instead, visit the Residence Life and Housing Office to complete a preference form on which you can indicate your roommate request. We will assign you with your roommate request as long as your new roommate also requests you on their Housing Preference Form. You will not be able to choose a room and be assigned with a new student — you must decide if it is more important for you to be housed with your roommate or to choose exactly where you live.

What if I am being harassed?

When a student selects a room, they have the right to not be harassed by any other student who may have wanted that room. Please note that any harassment of another student including sending abusive or threatening messages by any means will be processed through the Student Conduct Office and could result in the forfeit of your on-campus housing assignment, according to the College Code B-10– Electronic Use Policy and C-1-Harassment. If you are being harassed talk to your resident assistant or residence hall director. Back to top.
