Housing & Relocation


You may choose to live on or off 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.
