Guests and Visiting Students
The Residence Halls
SUNY Downstate Medical Center maintains two residential facilities for full-time students in the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Health Related Professions (CHRP), and the Graduate School. The Office of Residential Life and Services may provide temporary housing for eligible members of the faculty, staff, and visiting students.
These facilities, located on the Downstate Medical Center Campus, have traditional residence hall and apartment style units available for student occupancy. There are rooms available for use by transient guests. Professional managers, Resident Directors, Resident Assistants and Public Safety personnel staff the facilities.
