Kaplan Hall Information
Standing tall at the corner of Grand and First streets, the 87,000-square-foot Kaplan Hall opened for classes on January 19.
A formal dedication of Kaplan Hall is planned for Thursday, March 24.
“Kaplan Hall, and the development of the Newburgh campus, is the single most important advancement since the founding of the College,” says Dr. William Richards, SUNY Orange president.
Construction of Kaplan Hall and its adjoining underground parking garage has been ongoing since a ceremonial ground-breaking took place in October 2008.
The new three-story building houses a bevy of classrooms and science laboratories, as well as a two-story library, a one-stop center for all student services, a cybercafé where students can mingle, and office space for faculty members and administrators. Kaplan Hall is also registered with the U.S. Green Building Council and includes many environmentally friendly features both internally and externally.
This state-of-the art urban campus demonstrates the College’s dual commitment to education and sustainability as SUNY Orange—and now Kaplan Hall as well—will continue to stand tall in Newburgh for generations to come.

Phone Extension Changes
Effective Jan. 3, 2011, the first digit of most phone extensions at the Newburgh Campus was changed to the number 9 (for example, the phone number for Campus Security, formerly 4533, has become 9533).
A short-term exception to this change is that the phone numbers for Student Services staff will remain the same as they have always been until they move into Kaplan on January 26.
The searchable online College directory has been updated with the correct phone numbers for everyone at the Newburgh Campus. Please consult this directory if you have any questions about reaching staff in Newburgh during this transition period.
The parking garage located under Kaplan Hall is open and accessible for students, staff and visitors. The parking garage is accessible via First Street, across from Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Parking is also available behind Ebenezer Baptist Church, as well as adjacent to the railroad trestles along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. However, shuttle bus service from the train trestle lots has been discontinued.
