Housing

Where will you live when you arrive at Dowling?

If you plan on living in a college residence, it is very important that you contact the Residence Halls and reserve a room as soon as possible. There is limited availability! Please do not assume that a room is reserved unless you have received confirmation of the reservation. Your application cannot be processed without a $200 housing deposit which can be paid online with your tuition deposit at www.dowling.edu.

Please complete the Request for Housing [hyperlink to form PDF]Form if you wish to reserve accommodation in a Dowling residence. Either scan and send it by email to international@dowling.edu, or send it to the following address:

Director, International Student and Scholar Services
Dowling College
150 Idle Hour Blvd.

Oakdale, NY 11769

Note: You should not assume that a room is reserved for you unless you have received confirmation of the reservation. Your application cannot be processed without the $200 deposit. You may send this by mail with your housing request form or pay online at www.dowling.edu. This deposit cannot be refunded unless you do not receive a visa. Do not delay, space is limited!

You should plan to arrive about 3 days before the start date of the semester. If you arrive earlier, you will need to make your own temporary accommodation arrangements.

Each residence apartment is furnished and has a kitchen and bathroom, but all necessary supplies such as dishes, cooking and eating utensils, blankets, pillows, bed linens, towels and other items have to be provided by you.
