West Campus Guarantee

What is the West Campus Apartments Guarantee?

This is an opportunity for all current SUNY Cortland students, both on and off campus, to sign up early for the following academic year's housing at West Campus Apartments. WCA offers something for everyone!

If you sign up, you will know where you are living next year, lock in this year's room rate of $3,870 for next year — avoiding the potential increase in room rates — and know that you will have free parking at West Campus Apartments, a $60/year value.
