Our campus has transformed in recent years with more than $300 million in construction efforts to bring a one-of-a-kind recreation center, an award-winning residence hall, and new academic spaces, including a renovated science facility.
Opportunity outside the classroom
SUNY Cortland offers more than 50 study abroad programs and nearly 80 active student clubs. The University is also home to a powerhouse NCAA Division III athletics program with 131 national titles.
