Utica Residential Life

Welcome to Residential Life in Utica!

Welcome to our Utica Residential Experience! We have the capacity to house 1,076 students in our modern, convenient Utica residential facilities. Please use the links to the left to learn more about our residential complexes and halls.

For fall 2022 Hilltop Hall will host 5 focus interest communities. FICs are centered on a combination of intellectual, cultural, and social affinities. They offer a unique opportunity to live and engage with people who share interests similar to your own. FICs are meant for students who want to engage with others, to experience activity when they are at home in their residence hall and who embrace the idea of faculty and staff being part of their living experience. Hilltop Hall opened in fall 2020, and is the first zero-net carbon-certified residence hall building in New York state.

Our returning students and new students will reside in Oriskany, Adirondack, Hilltop, and Mohawk in single and double rooms.
