New Graduate Student Information Guide
Please visit Current Students for a full listing of college resources such as bookstore information, health services, and the CSI Library. The information below is provided to assist you with some immediate needs as you prepare for the upcoming semester:
Office of Student Housing
Campus Center (1C), Room 212
Phone: (718) 982-3216
Being a part of our new on-campus residential community is more than just having a place to sleep each night. Your roommate(s) and neighbors could become lifelong friends. As you interact with other CSI students you will have the opportunity to learn about people who are different than you and, in the process, learn more about yourself. How will we help you achieve all this? The staff at Dolphin Cove is here to help create a strong student community. Throughout the year, we'll host frequent events, such as social gatherings and guest speakers and other programs and activities all, designed to help you make friends and excel at CSI. Our Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders who are specially trained to help make your time at Dolphin Cove a rich and rewarding experience. Applications are available in our office in the Campus Center (room 212) or you can apply online.
