The Suites at Laker Landing

Frequently Asked Questions

May I receive a tour of The Suites at Laker Landing?

Tours of The Suites at Laker Landing are coordinated through our Admissions Office. Campus and Residence Hall tours are part of the program afforded those attending Admissions Information Meetings; check with the Office of Admissions for meeting dates.

What is the deadline to apply?

There is no official deadline for application. However, availability will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is important to apply as soon as you are able. A student who is in need of housing is encouraged to apply by April.

I submitted my application. What happens next?

The submission of your application, $200 Security Deposit and $75 Application Fee places you into our process as of the date and time your application is received. Availability will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in early May. You will be contacted by the Office of Housing and Residential Life at the beginning of May with your status.

What happens if I'm on the waiting list?

We will begin offering bed spaces in early May and will continue making offers at the beginning of each month thereafter. If we are not able to offer you housing in a particular month, you will be placed on the waiting list and an offer may be extended the following month based on availability. Being on the waiting list does not mean you will not receive housing; rather that we are unable to offer housing to you in that particular month. We typically make offers to all those on our waiting list prior to opening. Status updates will NOT be given over the phone.

Is my deposit refundable?

The $200 Security Deposit portion of your initial deposit will be refunded to you if you choose to withdraw your housing application provided we have not first made an offer for housing. An applicant who declines an offer for housing is not eligible for a deposit refund. Please refer to the Application Terms and Conditions for full details.

What if I choose to live elsewhere after I've already applied to live at The Suites?

It is very important that you contact us as soon as you find other housing arrangements. If we have not already offered you housing, we will refund the $200 Security Deposit portion of your initial deposit. If we offer you housing and you decline because you have found other arrangements, you will not be eligible for a deposit refund.

Will financial aid pay for my housing?

It is very important that you financially plan for your stay with us. Your available aid will only be applied to your housing charge after College tuition and fees have been paid. Please refer to our billing schedule and call our office if you have further questions.

What if I have medical needs?

If you are in need of specialized housing due to a disability, please provide current documentation from an appropriate and qualified source (e.g., licensed primary care physician or psychologist) confirming the disability and recommended accommodations. Requests need to be made in writing and received with the signed License Agreement. We will make every effort to accommodate such requests as space allows.

May I choose with whom I wish to live?

You may specifically identify someone with whom you wish to be assigned on your application. We will do our best to honor your request as space allows. Please note that both students must be offered housing AND request to live with each other.

What's the bed size?

Our beds are standard twin (NOT extra-long).

What should I bring?

Although your suite is furnished, you are encouraged to personalize your room and make it a space to enjoy. Cookware, bedding, towels, accessories, and electronics are things each student will want to bring. Although there is overhead lighting, you are welcome to bring additional desk or table lamps (no halogen lamps). The Rules and Regulations clearly list prohibited items and those which are in violation of the New York State Fire Code.

Am I allowed to bring a car?

Parking is included in your cost of housing. There is a parking lot exclusively for residents adjacent to the Residence Hall. You must obtain a resident parking permit and properly display this permit in your vehicle. Parking rules are enforced.
