Here it is: your new home away from home. You will soon see that your residence hall is much more than just a building; it is a major part of your Rensselaer experience where you will make friends, branch out, and grow in our friendly, diverse community.

Building on the success of Rensselaer’s award-winning First-Year Experience program, the CLASS (Clustered Learning Advocacy and Support for Students) Initiative was launched this past year. CLASS paves the way for the Institute to further improve the overall student life experience.
Each class is supported by a team of residence life cluster deans, upperclass and graduate student staff, faculty residential commons deans, and a class dean. This will ensure that every student knows where to turn for help at all times, and receives the best individual counseling, mentoring, and personal attention that Rensselaer has to offer.
As part of the CLASS Initiative, all students are required to live on campus (and participate in a dining plan) during the freshman and sophomore years to facilitate the first-year and sophomore year experience programs. Just complete the Residence Hall and Dining Preference form, along with the roommate matching survey.
Residence hall assignments will be sent to your Rensselaer e-mail address prior to the first student orientation session. You will receive your e-mail account as part of your student orientation confirmation mailing.
