Spring on the York College campus

Residence Life & Campus Housing

When it comes to your ideal college life, where you live on campus might be as big a factor for you as academics. That’s why we go to great lengths to provide a safe, comfortable living space in which you can thrive, full of fun, educational programs and supportive staff.

Living on campus is a big deal at York College. In fact, if you aren’t a commuter, we require it. Why? In part because we see how much of a positive impact it can have when students live in close proximity to classes and to their classmates. When you’re in an inclusive community that cares about you, you’ll find it easier to adapt to college and be successful.

We offer modern living with apartments, houses, and suites for upperclassmen - Little Run Lodge has its own cafeteria and mail center! -  as well as traditional college halls. On-campus, you’re never too far away from food, class, the fitness center and more.
