Housing and Dining Options

As you explore your housing options for the 2024-25 academic year, we would like to provide you with information about your on-campus options. Ithaca College offers housing options that provide exclusive senior and graduate housing options with the convenience of being close to your classes.

Common Questions

Complete the Senior and Graduate Housing Community Intent Form as available. Spaces will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis while rooms are available. 

If you are assigned a space, you will be contacted to finalize the Senior and Graduate Housing Community paperwork. You will be notified of your specific room assignment at that time.

Undergraduate students who will be in their senior year (defined as having completed 6 semesters by the end of the Spring 2024 term) and graduate students are eligible to live in the Senior and Graduate Housing Community. Additionally, some flexibility may be available for students with less than 6 semesters completed by the end of the Spring 2024 term if they are graduating on or before May 2025.

The meal plan includes 21 meals per week (when dining halls are open during the academic semester) as well as $200 Bomber Bucks per semester. Visit IC Dining to learn more about your dining options. 

You may include this request in the Senior and Graduate Housing Community Intent form. Requests to be housed in a room near friends will be honored whenever possible pending space availability.

When completing the Senior and Graduate Housing Community Intent Form, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

When completing the Senior and Graduate Housing Community Intent Form, you will have the opportunity to indicate interest without reserving a room at this time. However, a room is not guaranteed until reserved by you. Rooms will be allocated on a rolling basis in order of submission and until all rooms are filled.  Students who request to reserve a room after all rooms are allocated in the community will be added to a waiting list. 

While this pilot program is an attractive option for some students, you may of course explore other on-campus housing options for upper-year students through the regular housing selection process. The room and board for these spaces are the standard rates. The reduced room and board package is specifically for the Senior and Graduate Housing Community.

The Senior and Graduate Housing Community provides a highly-flexible, convenient, and reduced cost alternative to moving off campus your senior or graduate year. This pilot program offers the ease and peace of mind of immediate access to classes, the fitness center, library, studios, dining and campus events, 24-hour maintenance and emergency services, and on-campus climate-controlled storage if desired. These are all at a reduced cost that, like other campus housing, covers laundry, utilities (water, heat, electric), and high-speed internet service while also including a meal plan and Bomber Bucks, with no 12-month lease, security deposit, or need to come up with first and last months’ rent upfront. Finally, we provide exceptional flexibility so you can take advantage of the housing and dining plan for less than a calendar or full academic year based upon December graduation, off-campus study plans, or unique graduate program schedules.

A Head Resident student staff member will live in the building and be available to support community members as they wish.
