Spring on the York College campus

Residence Life & Campus Housing

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, as well as traditional college halls. On-campus, you’re never too far away from food, class, the fitness center and more.
