Undergraduate Housing

Undergraduate students at Stony Brook University have several living options available in order to best meet the diverse interests of our student community. There are three styles of housing available for Undergraduate students including corridor style, suite style and apartment living units (for Juniors and Seniors). 

Corridor style housing (Mendelsohn, H and Roosevelt Quads) are communities of approximately 36 -40 residents living in double or single bedrooms along a hallway, sharing a common bath and shower area. There is a lounge / study area on each floor. Each building has a large community space for programs and activities, a building kitchen and laundry facilities. Students enjoy this style of housing if they are looking for an easy connection to residents on their floor which contributes to a strong sense of community.

Suite style housing (Tabler, Roth and Kelly Quads), are residence halls with 2 -3 bedrooms clustered around a shared common room and a bathroom. Suites are typically occupied by 4 - 6 residents, each. All of the suites on a floor are clustered around one another making it easy for residents to get to know their suitemates and the other residents on their floor.

First year students are assigned to a housing community based on their placement into one of the 6   Undergraduate College communities.   Returning students, select their space for the next academic year through the process known as Room Selection. Returning students may have the option of choosing to remain in their original building or quad as well as switch to a different living style depending on availability.  Students can learn more about each quad area below. 

Apartment Style and  Suites are available for Junior and Senior students in our  West Apartments, Chávez Hall, and Tubman Hall. More information can be found below about these areas as well.
