Campus Residences Budget

The residence halls and apartments at Stony Brook, as well with the campus housing throughout SUNY, are "self sufficient". What that means is that no State tax dollars, or any other source of funds beyond what students pay to live on campus, go to support the operation of our residential facilities.
