Although campus buildings are currently closed to the public, SUNY Sullivan is still open for business. Students and residents of Sullivan County who do not have internet access at home can bring their laptops, cell phones, and tablets to the SUNY Sullivan campus for free access via a WIFI hot spot in Parking Lot 2.

The campus Buildings & Grounds department has set up a boosted signal that covers the entire area, enabling internet access from the socially-distanced safety of individual cars.

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan County provided funding for this effort from the Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund. “We are so gratified to be able to partner with the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan to bring this important access to our students and our community,” said SUNY Sullivan President Jay Quaintance. 

It is partnerships such as this that will ensure that Sullivan County students and residents will be able to continue to work and thrive in this exceptional time.”

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan is a tax exempt, non-profit, publicly supported, philanthropic institution with the long-term goal of building permanent, named funds for the broad based charitable benefit of the individuals and families in the region.

The Foundation’s Board of Directors oversees these funds in perpetuity, to ensure that donor’s intentions are honored, now and forever.
