Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs!

Campus LifeThe Division of Student Affairs is committed to providing experiences and services that support the academic mission of SUNY College at Old Westbury. Our staff works in collaboration with faculty, the Student Government Association and others in the College community to enhance student learning, student development and the campus environment.

Our initiatives are focused on student development programs that enhance leadership skills, foster citizenship, promote ethical behavior, and facilitate self-understanding. We have more than 50 clubs and organizations that provide an amazing selection of opportunities for student activities and involvement. As the most diverse comprehensive college in the North (just ask U.S. News & World Report!), Old Westbury is committed to creating an environment that promotes cross cultural understanding as well as sensitivity and tolerance to differences.

The Division is also responsible for an array of student services that include such areas as student health services, counseling and career development services, and residential life and housing services. We recognize the needs of our diverse population and provide support to part-time, non-traditional, international, and first generation college students.

Please visit the Student Affairs links offered through this site. Each link provides a wide- range of important information on services and activities designed to help, motivate, and inspire you pursue the best Old Westbury has to offer.
