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.

Reserve Your Place at our Fall Open House Saturday November 15th 9AM-3PM!
