Syracuse University graduate students all live off-campus, due to limited availability of on-campus housing. There are ample off-campus housing options in the University neighborhood and elsewhere.

Graduate students do, however, have the option of living in University housing on South Campus during the summer only, in case you need additional time looking for a place or your housing facility is not available until the fall. 

The Graduate Records Office will also set up a Facebook group for all incoming Newhouse students after admission notifications are sent to facilitate finding roommates and/or a place to live.

Most students in broadcast and digital journalism will spend the last six weeks of their program (July and August) in Washington, D.C. Housing arrangements are up to you, but the department can offer guidance based on the experience of previous students.

Public diplomacy students will spend their final spring semester in Washington, D.C. This semester is coordinated by the Maxwell School.


Most Newhouse graduate students do not purchase meal plans, however they do put money in their SUpercard account, which works like a debit card, and can be used in any campus café.


On campus parking is at a premium, so we suggest that students walk and/or take a bus from their off-campus apartments. For students who live farther from campus, parking is available in commuter lots. For parking information and links to bus schedules, please go to the parking website.
