On-campus residence halls at SUNY Canton have filled to capacity for this fall, prompting campus officials to seek information on available off-campus student housing opportunities in the Canton area.
Landlords who expect to have vacancies or homeowners interested in renting rooms in their homes may contact the Residence Life office at (315) 386-7513 or email their information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tight housing situation is due to continued growth in enrollment, according to Courtney B. Bish, SUNY Canton’s Director of Residence Life. The College anticipates a third consecutive year of record-breaking enrollment. Last year, 3,300 students attended in the fall semester.
“Our extraordinary enrollment growth has created an incredible demand for on-campus housing,” said Assistant Vice President for Advancement Randy B. Sieminski, who oversees the College’s admissions offices. “With the upcoming opening of our new athletic complex and the addition of even more new bachelor’s degrees, it’s a truly exciting time for our College.”
Applications to SUNY Canton have increased nearly 20 percent in each of the past four years, and the college expects to set an all-time record for applications this year, surpassing the old mark of 5,331 set in 1977.
