Dear Fellow Residents,

On behalf of the Residence Hall Council please receive our warmest welcome. Thank you for choosing SUNY Downstate Residence Halls as your home during this journey.

In the Residence Halls, our number one goal is your academic success. We pride ourselves in creating a safe and convenient environment for you to thrive academically and personally. Some of the facilities we offer are — 24-hour security, quiet 24-hour study lounges in each building equip with computers, comfortable furniture, common areas on every floor equip with comfortable furniture conducive to group studying and friendly gatherings, 24-hour laundry facilities, TV’s in the lobby’s for group watching, and more. During business hours you can find our staff available to help you and answer any questions you may have and during non-business hours we have our Resident Directors and Assistants, whom are students just like yourselves, a phone call away.

We also find it greatly important to provide fun activities and de-stressors that facilitate community bonding. From playing pool, foosball, or air hockey here at the Residence Halls, to movie nights, game nights, arts and crafts, taco Tuesday, and trips off campus – we want you to create ties and friendships that will last a lifetime. We also provide opportunities for you to connect with Brooklyn through participation in the NYC Blood Drive, yearly service learning project, Halloween at the ResHalls, walks, and more.

RHC is here for you and we value your opinions — please be sure to join us every month at our RHC meetings and help us continue to make SUNY Downstate Residence Halls the best home for you. Your voice matters and your suggestions are heard. Become an active player as we grow together.
