Like most college freshmen, you will live in a residence hall (also called a dormitory or “dorm” for short), with a close-knit community of students, that is located right on Morrisville’s campus. This is a mandatory part of our program because residence halls are an ideal place to make friends, socialize, and acclimate to college life in America. Like any SUNY student, you will have access to a dining hall, student center, coffee bar, health and wellness center, and athletics stadium, plus over 40 student clubs and organizations, a 24-hour vending machine store, and ATMs. SAFETY ON CAMPUS 24-hour security Secure access to dormitories with student ID card and key Blue Light emergency phones that connect to the police throughout campus Fire alarm sprinkler system throughout the buildings


Surveillance cameras and lighted sidewalks to campus

All ONCAMPUS SUNY students will have accommodation on campus at Morrisville State College (MSC). This means you will quickly become part of the close-knit community that MSC is well known for, providing an excellent opportunity to get to know your fellow students and further immerse yourself in the local culture. Students will be housed in a number of possible residence halls. Students may indicate their housing preference on their housing application sent out with pre-arrival information. Resident Assistants (RAs): RAs are trained students who live on each floor with their fellow students. They are a student’s first contact for concerns and questions. RAs plan programs and assist the RDs with the day-to-day operations of the Residence Hall. Residence Directors (RDs): Each Residence Hall is staffed by a live-in professional staff member (RD or building manager). In most residence halls, the professionals work on a full-time basis; RDs and building managers are trained administrators who have knowledge and experience in college residential living. They are responsible for the supervision of the Resident Assistants. Each Residence Hall operates two staff offices where the RAs and RDs are available at various hours for questions and concerns. The RA desk is used to distribute recreational equipment, games, and other services provided by the Office of Residence Life.
