Campus Life


Located in the heart of Syracuse, the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing offers a unique student experience. Adjacent to Syracuse University and less than 10 minutes from downtown Syracuse, the school is in a prime location for enjoying food, music and entertainment — when you’re not in class, clinicals or studying, of course!


On-Campus Living
A modern residential hall is available for a limited number of female students. Students requesting a dorm room need to complete the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing Residence Hall Application at the time of application to the college. 


Residence staff oversees the residence hall and maintains the communication link with school staff. Uniformed security officers from the hospital provide security, the residence entrance is always locked and the off-hours entrance to the building is locked and constantly monitored by a video surveillance.

Male students interested in residence hall arrangements should contact the SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Office of Student Life at 315/464-5106.

Our student lounge is equipped with snack and beverage vending machines, tables and chairs, sink, refrigerator and microwave ovens. Students are welcome to use this area any time and are responsible for keeping the lounge, food preparation and eating areas clean.

Smoke-Free Environment

Smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and death. Crouse Hospital and the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing are committed to promoting health, wellness, prevention and the treatment of diseases within the community as well as to provide a safe, clean and healthy environment for our patients, visitors, medical staff, students and employees. We serve as a model for the community in the area of promoting good health by influencing public attitudes about use of smoking. Smoking is prohibited in or on any part of the hospital campus including any and all remote sites. This includes the Marley Education Center. Please refer to the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing catalog for specific policies that apply to students.

Substance Misuse/Abuse

The use of drugs, including alcohol, affects physical reflexes, coordination, concentration and judgment. It also impairs decision-making ability and may result in unintended behavior and consequences. Substance abuse raises safety issues because the impairment of response time and judgment may put others at risk, including fellow students and patients. Students who use alcohol or other drugs remain totally responsible for all of their actions while under the influence of those substances. Refraining from the use of alcohol and other drugs is one way of demonstrating responsibility and concern for self and others.

In accordance with the Higher Education Law/H.R.6, federal legislation authorizes schools to notify parents and/or guardians of any violation of rules regarding the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance if the student is under the age of 21. Crouse Hospital School of Nursing will enforce this law.

Please refer to the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing catalog  for specific policies that apply to students.
