Housing

You may choose to live on or off campus.

On-campus

  • The University has a block of 2-bedroom apartments specifically reserved for veterans on a space-available basis
  • These apartments are available to veterans year-round and can be paid for on a monthly basis
  • You pay per-bedroom, meaning that you will have your own bedroom but will share common areas with a roommate. Veterans with dependents can rent the second bedroom for half-price.
  • For veterans who qualify for 100% Post-9/11 GI Bill or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment Benefits, the university also provides a $3,000 grant (per year) to assist them with paying for these veteran-designated apartments.
  • For veteran-specific housing information and questions, contact Eileen Simmons at esimmons@syr.edu or 315-443-2721.

Off-Campus

  • Visit the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services for information on finding an apartment or house to rent
  • http://occs.syr.edu/ or (315) 443-5489

Child Care Assistance

With sponsorship from Syracuse University’s Human Resources department, the Veterans Resource Center at University College has entered into a partnership with Child Care Solutions, a local not-for-profit organization that provides information, referrals, and educational materials to parents who need child care in order to continue their education. Information is available through the University College Financial Aid Office.

Grant money awarded to a student is posted to the student’s Bursar account and paid by UC directly to the child care provider. Students must apply each semester.
