Resident students living on the Staten
Island campus have the unique opportunity of living in
apartment style housing. The Office of Residence Life is made up of
several full-time and part-time administrators who are on
call 24-hours a day. The resident facility consists of garden-style
apartments in the Grymes Hill section of Staten Island. They are
adjacent to the Staten Island campus and
are maintained by the University Facilities Department and
patrolled hourly by Public Safety.
Currently, Residence Life leases 79 student apartments, with the
capacity to house 231 students. Just under half of all resident
students are freshmen, while the rest are sophomores and juniors
and a small number of seniors who select to remain in University
housing their last year. All first-year students are housed
in the Courtyard located on Arlo Road.
Each apartment is furnished with a bed,
desk, desk chair and dresser per student. Common furniture includes
a couch, coffee table, lounge chair, dining table and dining
chairs. Every apartment has a bathroom and full-service kitchen
complete with refrigerator, microwave and stove. We also have
11 reserved parking spots for rent which are located on Arlo Road.
In addition, a meal plan and wireless internet and cable connection
are provided in each apartment. To ensure that students are
involved and active, we offer special programming targeted to
resident students to enhance their college experience and create a
greater community feeling.
A calendar of events is posted monthly offering spiritual,
social, cultural, entertainment and educational events. The
Residence Life Office, which contains a community room equipped
with inviting and comfortable furniture, a 52” flat screen HDTV,
video games and a full kitchen, is open until 9 p.m., seven days a
week. The Residence Life Council (RLC) affords resident students a
significant opportunity to participate and effect change in the
community. Through the RLC, students can construct and participate
in social, educational and service programs that cater specifically
to the students residing in the Residence Life program and is an
excellent way for students to get involved on campus and develop
individual leadership skills.
The Dean and Assistant Dean of Student Life act as the Judicial
Officers for the Staten Island campus
and manage all non-academic student discipline issues.
