Welcome to Your New Home!
Living on Campus
Dear Prospective Resident Student,
"Welcome to your new home!" That's what you'll hear on check-in day next semester. Living on campus is not just "living away from home," it's "living at your home-away-from-home."
The Residence Life Staff recognizes that to gain the full college experience, living on campus is a great asset. Residing on campus is fun and educational. Recent research showed that students who live on campus earn higher GPAs, and are more likely to graduate within four years. Living on campus makes the numerous resources on campus, such as the tutoring center, gym, and library, more accessible to you. It is also easy for residents to be involved, meet people, and participate in campus activities.
The residence halls are convenient to academic and administrative areas on campus, and offer an environment that supports and complements your academic endeavors. Residence hall living offers you the opportunity to meet other students and forge friendships that can last a lifetime. It also provides you with the opportunity to learn about other cultures and lifestyles, as well as learn more about yourself. Students who live in the residence halls can experience significant personal growth as a result of their new found independence.
If you have any questions about residing on campus, please don't hesitate to contact us.
NEW - Residence Access Program
If you are a new student—freshman, transfer, or international—who is enrolling for Fall '19, you may qualify for Farmingdale’s new Resident Access Program (RAP). This program provides a $2,000 award for qualified resident hall students who live in-state and a $4,000 award for those who qualify from out-of-state. Awards will be based on a variety of factors including academic performance and need. Students will remain eligible for the award as long as they stay in good academic standing as a full-time student and resident hall occupant. No special application required, but students must submit a FAFSA. All new students will be considered, but you must submit both your admissions application by May 1 and your resident hall application by July 15.
