Dear Parents and Family Members:
I hope this finds you well.
New student Orientation and campus construction are on the docket for SUNY Cortland this summer. While the construction around campus and specifically in Fay Corey Union is making challenges for new student Orientation, new and returning students should be able to enjoy a fully renovated student social space in the lower level of Fay Corey Union as early as August 2018. This new space will feature a coffee shop, Grains and Greens salads and sandwiches, and an Italian and pizza-focused eatery, Pomodori, complete with a campus "living room," study nooks, and performance spaces.
Other frequently asked questions by new students include having a vehicle on campus. Parking on campus can be a challenge to put it mildly. While having a car on campus is not encouraged, there are some real reasons for doing so. Please see the Parking Department page for more detail.
