Alumni Commons Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions of Alumni Commons Occupancy, 2022-2023

The following agreement refers to Alumni Commons only. Terms and Conditions of occupancy for all other Residence Halls are found on a separate page.


Minimum living condition standards are established and include:

  1. The Alumni Commons (AC) residences are constructed and maintained to conform to all applicable safety codes and health standards;
  2. AC residences provide for a regular schedule of cleaning common areas (suite building corridors, lobby, laundry room, public bathroom, study rooms); repairs are made as promptly as possible depending upon availability of materials and personnel;
  3. AC residences provide each student resident with adequate living space, furniture such as a bed, desk, dresser space, closet space, and appropriate heat, light, and hot water;
  4. AC residences have established and maintain a procedure for routine and emergency repairs through the Director of Alumni Commons in conjunction with the campus Facilities Management Department;
  5. AC residences have a procedure for student residents in the event of the loss of services such as heat, light and hot water in residences for an extended period;

In addition, SUNY Cobleskill has established a set of specific guidelines regarding AC living as listed in this "CAMPUS RESIDENCE AGREEMENT" which is reviewed and positively affirmed or signed by all students prior to checking into the AC residences at the beginning of the fall term, or upon first-time entry.

Furthermore, due to the impact of COVID-19, there are policies and procedures that students must comply with to maintain their residential status with SUNY Cobleskill. Due to the nature of the virus and the federal and state oversight that the College must follow, the policies and procedures related to COVID-19 do fluctuate. It is imperative that students stay abreast of these policies and any changes that may be instituted throughout the semester.  Although changes will be sent to students via Campus email, students should also become familiar with the guidance webpage.   

In a measure to preserve community health, SUNY Cobleskill will require that all students planning to live on campus during the Fall 2022 semester must have begun or completed their COVID-19 vaccination series by the time they arrive on campus, with limited medical or religious exceptions (more information below).  Residential students will need to finalize their full vaccination status within the time frame outlined by the Student Wellness Center.  Please make sure to carefully review the in-person guidance webpage outlined above for specific details related to this mandate.

These are very difficult times, and, as such, the traditional residence life experience will be different from what you are accustomed to due to the concerns around COVID-19. Our goal is to provide the best services possible to our residents but recognize that health and safety do require some sacrifice of privileges.

Due to serious hazards that COVID-19 presents, all students are expected to follow these regulations while living in campus housing. Our goal is to work as a community to help support one another and enforce these standards so that can we can maximize the health and well-being of every person at the Campus. Should students not strictly follow these directives, their housing contract may be subject to immediate termination.
