What does a triple in BARH look like? I honestly don’t know, and they are quite rare. I’m confident that it would, in fact, be one set of bunked beds and one single bed. For a more certain answer, you can contact the Office of Residential Education.
Have people ever complained about being cramped? Ever…? in the history of BARH triples? It’s probably happened, yes… but you’re not living in a closet. You’ll make the space work – that’s part of what college is about.
Is there a cleaning service for the bathrooms? Yes. RPI has a department called Environmental and Site Services. Each building has at least one cleaning person assigned to it. This staff person will clean the bathrooms (usually once a week) and maintain the common living spaces, like hallways, lounges, kitchens, etc. You are still responsible for keeping things tidy and not making huge messes – it’s not a maid service. [Some people prefer to clean their own bathroom. If this is the case, you can just ask your cleaning person not to clean your bathroom, but you do need to do it. If you don’t, you can be fined.]
