With guaranteed housing every year for undergraduates, the IC campus is a place you can call home. In each of our residence halls and apartment communities, find spaces to study, have meaningful discussions, hang out, unwind, and make memories. Many students choose to live on campus with their friends and classmates all four years (though only the first three are required).

In the First-Year Residential Experience and other specialized Residential Learning Communities, discover ways to meet and collaborate with mentors and peers where you live, like faculty presentations and group social and service events. And it's all on a walkable campus—right outside your door you can learn, work on projects, immerse yourself in nature, and explore.

Off Campus Housing

As a residential college, Ithaca College has a three year residency requirement for students and all non-senior students are required to live on campus. Students are advised not to sign a lease unless you have written approval from the Office of Residential Life or meet the exemption criteria outlined in the Residency Policy.

The off-campus application process for the 2019-2020 academic year opens on Monday, October 22, 2018 at 8:00 AM.
