Office of Student Living and Learning
, also known as ResLife, is the focus for student housing programs related to living and dining at Rensselaer. In addition to providing clean, comfortable, and well-maintained residence halls and apartments, ResLife strives to build a community that values the potential of each individual and encourages students to broaden their perspectives, enhance personal growth, and prepare for life beyond Rensselaer.
A student staff of resident assistants, resident directors, and learning assistants complement the professionals in the ResLife office. Housing is required and guaranteed for the freshmen and sophomore years. Housing is not guaranteed for juniors and beyond, but every effort will be made to accommodate those who wish to live on campus.
