All new students living in residence halls must submit documentation about their COVID-19 vaccination status by Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022. Vaccination verification will be managed through the SUNY portal, which is available for accepted students through the Admissions tab in myRedDragon or online through the SUNY website. Students must log in to myRedDragon to complete this process. Limited exceptions will be made only for approved medical and religious reasons. Applications for medical or religious exemptions must be submitted by Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022.
As required by New York State, COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are mandatory for all eligible campus residents. As students become eligible for boosters during the semester, they will be required to receive a booster shot. Details about this safety measure are still being developed and will be shared as soon as they are available.
Residents are required to register for a move in appointment in the housing portal by Wednesday, January 19. All residential students will be required to do pre-arrival testing. Residential students are expected to comply with all other pre-arrival and arrival directives listed in the College's Spring 2022 Guidance.
Looking to arrive early? Complete the Early Arrival Request Form. Approved early arrivals (including athletes, staff members, and other requests) should arrive during their scheduled timeslot. All early arrival requests must be submitted by January 17.
Permits will be sold on a per-semester basis only. Total number of all permit types sold are subject to a cap. Once permit type pools are exhausted, students may enter a wait list in the unlikely event that additional permits will become available.
There will be no mandated triple room assignments in any of our residence halls. All rooms will be singles, double, or designed triple rooms.
Residential students will not be permitted to have any daytime or overnight guests (including but not limited to: non-SUNY Cortland students, off-campus students, siblings, family members, etc.) in the residence halls.
Residential students will be permitted to visit other residence halls. Visiting residents cannot stay overnight and are expected to depart the building by 2 a.m.
All residents hosting other residents are responsible for the actions of their visitors. Residents are expected to take reasonable action to prevent their visitors from violating College policies.
A portion of our West Campus Apartments have been set aside as dedicated quarantine and/or isolation space reserved for the needs of on-campus residents during the academic year.
