Undergraduate Housing

During Summer 2020, a committee of faculty, staff, and resident students examined our current undergraduate housing model. This committee’s work included evaluating housing models at peer institutions, particularly around the first-year experience, and making recommendations to improve on-campus living for all residents. As a result of this committee’s work, starting in Fall 2021:

  • Eleanor Roosevelt Community: Stimson will be for returner and new transfer students, Keller will be for first year students, Greeley will be for Scholars and first year students, and Wagner will be for WISE and first year students with the Undergraduate College of Creativitry, Technology, & Innovation.
  • H Community: Benedict North (D/E Wings) will be for returner and new transfer students, Benedict South (A/B Wings) will be for Scholars and first year students, James will be for WISE and first year students, and Langmuir will be for first year students with the Undergraduate College of Global Health, Wellness, & Community.
  • Kelly Community: Hamilton, Schick, Eisenhower, Baruch and Dewey will be for returner and new transfer students. 
  • Mendelsohn Community: Gray will be for returner and new transfer students, Ammann will be for Scholars and first year students, Irving will be for first year students, O’Neill will be for WISE and first year students with the Undergraduate College of Social Jusitice, Equity, & Ethics.
  • Roth Community: Gershwin, Cardozo, Mount, Hendrix, and Whitman will be returner and new transfer student buildings. 
  • Tabler Community: Hand, Douglass, Dreiser, Sanger, and Toscanini will be returner and new transfer student buildings.
  • Chávez, Tubman, & Nobel Community: Lauterbur Hall will be reserved for Second Year Living Community (2YLC) , and Yang Hall is the home of the Honors College program and will have a limited number of spaces available for continuing students. Chávez and Tubman offer single rooms in suite style spaces for residents who have 57 or more credits (earned and currently enrolled credits) and are not on residential probation.
  • West Apartments offer apartment style spaces. Eligibility will continue to be available for residents who have 57 or more credits (earned cumulative credits and currently enrolled credits) and are not on residential probation. 

We believe this new system of housing first-year students together will improve their transition to Stony Brook, provide common experiences, and strengthen class year identity and community.

Our goal is to ensure that continuing resident students will also benefit from this new plan. We will offer more engagement opportunities and targeted resources that cater to each class year and community’s needs.
