Students at Susquehanna University live in 11 residential areas comprised of 39 separate buildings. After the first year, students are welcome to live anywhere on campus regardless of class year.
Each spring, students choose their room and roommate for the upcoming school year through a housing lottery system. There are a plethora of housing options to choose from in the lottery including Greek housing, living-learning communities, suite-style housing and single rooms. Current students can visit the Residence Life mySU site to learn more.
The residence halls close for Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring, Easter and Summer Breaks. Students are expected to close their rooms and vacate their halls during these times.
Susquehanna University strives to create an educational and exciting community environment for its students. The structure, staffing, programming and policies in our residence halls promote and reinforce the importance of community living and learning outside the classroom. Residence halls are the perfect environment for students to develop lifelong skills such as civility, relationship building and problem solving. Residence halls feature common areas such as lounges, living rooms, study rooms and classrooms to promote student interaction. For the enjoyment of residents, these common areas often have televisions, pool tables or ping pong tables in addition to standard furniture.
Students are expected to manage conflicts by first approaching the source of the problem and trying to solve the conflict through discussion. If this does not resolve the conflict, students should speak with their resident assistant, who will facilitate a mediation process.
