Housing Options

At SUNY Canton, we do our best to make your "home away from home" experience a pleasant one. We have many different lifestyle and housing options to choose from. Please note that all housing options are subject to change based on student interest and space availability.

On-Campus Housing Options:

All Female Wing

This wing will be reserved for female students only.

Non-Themed Housing

These rooms are in co-ed wings and do not have a centralized theme. These rooms are suited best for students who are not interested in living in theme housing, but are looking for a more traditional-styled college living experience.

Honors Floor

This floor is designed for those students who are interested in academic honors programs at SUNY Canton and excelled academically in high school. The students living on this floor are hand-selected, and will have the opportunity to take part in extracurricular activities with staff and faculty members on the campus. The focus of this floor is academic excellence, and students who live on this floor will be expected to participate in regular study hours and maintain a minimum of a 3.0 semester & cumulative GPA while living on this floor.

Team Roo!

This is a special interest floor for those playing college athletics, intramurals, or those who are simply athletically inclined or enjoy sports.

Esports Wing

This is a special interest wing for students interested in esports and gaming. Rooms on the 2nd and 3rd have custom loft beds with large built-in gamer desks. Students living in this area should be aware that the loft beds are accessed using an attached ladder and that there is limited space between the mattress and the ceiling.

Kennedy Hall

This state-of-the-art residence hall offers apartment-style housing and is available for upperclassmen and transfer students only.

Automotive Tech Floor

This floor is for freshmen interested in automotive technology. These individuals are typically in the same major or similar schedules.

The Pet Wing

This housing option is designed for students who enjoy sharing their living space with animals. It is not a requirement that a student possesses an animal to live on this floor. Students who have allergies to any kind of animal are strongly discouraged from living in this area due to the various animals that live on these floors. Residents are permitted to bring small, caged pets from home with the prior approval of the Residence Hall Director. We're sorry, but at this time we do not permit dogs (of any size), birds, spiders or snakes in pet wing. You will be notified during the summer months if you are approved to live in this housing option. This wing is also designated as Alcohol Free.

The following pdf forms must be filled out in order to have your pet approved. Please note: You need to be approved to live in the pet wing before you fill out the forms below:
