Living in Potsdam

In this Section

Graduate students traditionally live in off-campus apartments and houses in and around Potsdam, New York. Each year, the Graduate Business Program Office surveys our current graduate students on their housing (location, cost, utilities and conditions).

The Graduate Business Program Office will provide a listing of available off-campus housing (download the 2014 Housing List), including location of particular accommodations, number of rooms, price, whether the units are furnished, etc. The University does not certify these facilities, nor does the Graduate Business Program Office inspect them. However, based on feedback from current students, we strive to maintain the accuracy of the housing options available.
