Transfer Housing at ESF's Syracuse Campus
On and Off Campus Housing Options
Most transfer students choose to live in off-campus apartments in the neighborhood surrounding the SUNY-ESF and SU campus, University Hill. Visit our off-campus Housing page to learn more about resources available for locating housing in the University Hill area and the Greater Syracuse area.
On-campus housing for ESF transfer students is available on a space available basis. Students interested in living on-campus must indicate their interest on the Undergraduate Enrollment Agreement (enclosed with their offer of admission) and return this form with the $400 deposit to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by May 1 for fall entry and December 1 for spring entry. Requests received after these deadlines will be considered for any remaining openings. Transfer students who request consideration for on-campus housing will be notified whether or not they have been placed in Centennial Hall by mid-May to early June for fall entry or late November to early December for spring entry.
Please do not complete the on-line housing application for Centennial Hall which only applies to current students.
Questions regarding on-campus housing for transfer students should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Meal Plans for Transfers
Whether living on campus or off, transfer students are welcome to purchase a dining plan from Syracuse University and/or a Trailhead Dollars acount for ESF's Trailhead Café and Treehouse Grab and Go. Those living in on-campus housing units without full kitchens are required to have a meal plan. All students with meal plans dine in any of the five campus dining centers and each meal plan includes a declining balance account for a la carte dining at the snack bars and food courts.
If you have meal plan questions, contact the SU Housing and Meal Plan Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about Trailhead Dollars accounts, contact Diana Johnson, Director of Food Service at email@example.com.
