Housing Policy

As part of our benefits program, St. Lawrence University maintains housing units for rental by new faculty and staff.   These units are rented on a first come-first serve basis for one academic year (August 1 to June 15) to help new employees become familiar with the Canton community before finding their own permanent housing.  Most houses and apartments are located adjacent to campus within walking distance to the University.

House and apartment descriptions are provided as a general reference.  Availability of specific houses and apartments for the 2014-15 academic year will be determined during the 2014 spring semester as current tenants provide information on their expected move-out dates.

Newly hired full-time faculty/staff in the first year of their employment have the highest priority in assignment for available housing. New faculty/staff are eligible to reside in university housing for a period of one academic year.

Formal application by new faculty/staff for university housing can be made immediately after accepting a position with the University.
