    a. If you are a resident in Lazarus Levine Residence Hall you must have a meal plan purchased through Chartwells Dining. Residents in Lazarus Levine do not have access to kitchen facilities. If you are a resident in the Eco Green Townhouses, you are not required to purchase a meal plan, as there are full kitchens in each house (you must supply your own kitchen utensils and food). Residents in Eco may purchase full or partial meal plans if they would like to do so.

  11. Can I have a single room?

    a. We have limited single rooms (8) and half of them are reserved by upper classmen during room selection. The others are held as medical singles for incoming students. If they are not needed for serious medical conditions, then they will become available at the 5th week of class.

  12. Can I choose my roommate?

    a. Yes, if you and a friend are both attending Sullivan, when you each complete your housing application there is a space for you to write in each other’s names as a request. Please keep in mind, a request is just that, all attempts will be made to honor the request, but the later the applications are completed and received the more difficult it is to house students with their requested roommate.

  13. What happens if my student and his/her roommate don’t get along?

    a. If there is a conflict between roommates, students may first speak with their Resident Assistant (RA) on their wing to complete a Roommate Contract and mediation. All RAs are trained to facilitate roommate mediations and conflicts to best serve both students. Should your student and their roommate continue to not get along after a contract is established, your student may then work with the Resident Director of their residence hall to work on completing a room change.

  14. Can I have a pet in my room?

    a. Financial Aid covers the cost of your tuition first, and then whatever may be left after those expenses are covered will be applied to the cost of your housing and meal plan. Many times students/families need to plan on taking out loans to assist in covering costs. For further information please contact that Office of Financial Aid.

  23. Does someone clean our rooms for us?

When you move out of your room, you will fill it out a second time to compare the condition of the room and the furniture. These reports are used to help our office during damage billing at the end of the semester/year.

  27. Do I need renters insurance?

  30. Do I get my deposit back at the end of every year?

    a. No, you pay your damage deposit once and the Dormitory Corporation will hold it the entire time you are a resident here. If, you are charged for damages during your first year- you will be required to make the deposit whole again before the start of your second year. Once closing has occurred and damage billing is done, all deposits are returned via check to the address we have on file for you.

  31. Why do I need to pay a damage deposit?

    a. You are required to pay a damage deposit in the event that any damages occur in common spaces in the building, or there are damages/cleaning fees to the furniture or surroundings of your room.

    a. No, you will need to provide your own pots, pans, dishes and utensils.

  33. Can I leave my belongings in my room over the summer for when I return?

    a. No, unfortunately we do not have the space and resources to store any personal belongings over the summer break. If you would like to store your belongings near SUNY Sullivan, please look to local storage facilities. To save on the cost, students may think of splitting the cost of one unit with a roommate or friend for the summer.
