Built in 1972, Casey Tower was named to honor the former director of housing at SUNY Cortland, James Casey '53. Casey began working in the college housing office in 1965, continuing there until his death in 1981.
Casey Tower underwent a major renovation during the spring 2020 semester to improve the heating and ventilation, including the installation of high-efficiency boilers. Additionally, exterior windows were replaced to improve comfort and energy efficiency.
The first floor features a remodeled lounge that includes movable walls, allowing for functions of various sizes. Upper floors now have kitchenettes and expanded lounge space. The main laundry facility remains on the first floor, but floors nine and 10 now have designated laundry units. Casey Tower added corridor-style spaces, a total of eight suites were converted to corridor rooms and common bathrooms.
Casey Tower features four-person and six-person suites, corridor double rooms, and designed singles. Four-person suites have two bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge. Six-person suites have three bedrooms and larger bathroom and lounge. Suites in these buildings are open to upper-class and new students.
