Housing Basics

Living on campus give students a sense of community and belonging.

On-Campus Housing

Ithaca College is a residential campus, and so all incoming undergraduate students are expected to live on campus. To sign up for housing, students need to go to homerconnect.ithaca.edu after May 1 to complete their housing applications. (HomerConnect is the Ithaca College student information system which contains all students’ admission, academic, financial, and billing records. The Office of the Registrar generates the HomerConnect ID and pin number for each student and OIP sends it to the students in the packet with their I-20. If you have questions regarding HomerConnect access, please contact registrar@ithaca.edu.)

All residence halls (except HOME), close for the school breaks that are a week, or longer: Thanksgiving Break at the end of October and Spring break in mid-March, as well as Winter Break which is a month long.

Off-Campus Housing

If interested in living off campus, the students must apply in writing to the Office of Residential Life for permission to move off campus; they must meet the criteria of the Residency Policy, and receive written approval from the Office of Residential Life before moving off campus.
