Residential Life & Housing

Welcome to Residential Life!

Our residence halls in Utica are more than just a place to sleep and hang your clothes. They’re places to learn about yourself and others, while meeting all kinds of people – some from right down the road, others from around the world. Living in one of our residence halls lets you experience different lifestyles, ideas, and points of view and get involved in campus life.

In Albany, CrestHill Suites provides a comfortable living experience for all residents. Students live in a variety of hotel suites, each with their own kitchen and furniture, with laundry services provided.


The mission of the Residential Life and Housing Office is to provide a unique residential program which enables all students to enhance their educational and social experiences through interaction with faculty, staff, and peers in a residential community. The Office of Residential Life and Housing is guided by the principles of providing students with a safe, healthy and engaging living/learning environment. In partnership with the Student Affairs Office, the Residential Life and Housing program supports the overall academic mission of SUNY Poly.
