For freshmen, if you want singles, generally, you have two options. You can either apply for North Hall and E-Complex singles or you can choose Sharp hall to live in a suite of 6 singles.
August, September and early October is warm with a couple cold days and some rain. Then in Winter, it gets cold and snowy. Winter usually ends around early April but it can still be chilly in April and early May.
Students living in dorms are not allowed to use any kind of heater but all housing options are equipped with heating and the heating will be there until the end of the Spring semester.
Yes, all of the resident halls have drinking fountains.
Nope, they are not allowed in any student residences.
The singles in North Hall are about 100 sqft big. There are 2 bathrooms in each floor, so about 10 people would be sharing 2 bathrooms. You can find more info about North Hall here: https://sll.rpi.edu/buildings/north-hall
Yes, as long as you can find a place to put it. You are free to have monitors and TVs in the room.
Yes there will be RA’s and RD’s, and monthly inspections.
Yes they are.
All Freshman would have to go to Commons to get their mails and packages. There is one small mail box for each dorm room and you will receive the keycode with your dorm keys. Packages are arranged to be picked up on the first floor of Commons, where you would present your student ID to the staffs and they will bring out you packages.
There’s no A/C in Nason. However, there is heating for the winter season but using an additional heater is not allowed in any dorms at RPI.
They are not available. However, are common fridges and microwaves for everyone to use in every dorm. If you want your own in your dorm room, then yes, you would have to purchase them.
They only have one front door entry.
Yes, you may.
Yes, everyone has a single room and 6 people in the suite shares a common room and bathroom.
Yes I believe so. Unless the room is in the basement where you might get a small window.
There are only a couple singles in nugent and they are usually given out to RAs and RDs. But yes, they do have their own bathrooms.
Gender is definitely important because your roommate would have to be the same gender as you. As for the rest, just mention things that you think it’s important for your roommate to know, such as your daily sleep time and work time.
Definitely join your class page on Facebook! A lot of events are posted there for you to attend and meet people. With the ResLife portal, you should be able to find roommates and choose the building and room you want to live in.
Quad vs. Blitman:
Quad is closer to the campus but with smaller living spaces. Blitman has only doubles but the rooms are big and each room has its own bathroom and shower.
I don’t know that much about greek life, but I do that they have bondings from time to time for people to meet each other.
Yes, they do.
I don’t believe that we have rooms specifically for this. However, you can email reslife at firstname.lastname@example.org about your situation for special room request like this.
All the RAHP apartments and the Stacwyck apartments are suites with four single rooms with a kitchen and a living room. In Colonies B, the doubles are separated into two rooms with a bathroom in between, so it’s mostly like two singles sharing a bathroom. There are some singles in Quad. You can see the floor plan and look up if whether a room is a double, single or triple here: Quad info
There are a couple ones in Nugent and Davison, but only like 1 per floor. If you get REALLY lucky, you might be able to get it.
Yes, I believe it’s also furnished.
No, unfortunately not.
No unfortunately not, and you can’t really take the bunked bed down either.
You can find it here in this post: How thick are the mattresses? I’m purchasing a pad so I need the right size sheets. Thanks!
No it just means that you are assigned to 310 and if you have a roommate, he/she would be 310B. It has nothing to do with which bed you need to sleep on, you can decide that with your roommate.
You can find the rules and why regard this issue here: http://reslife.rpi.edu/update.do?artcenterkey=144
Dorm room safety checks are conducted every month, so I would say that you need to meet the rules to pass the checks.
You probably need to rent a loft if you want to raise the bed to a bucked bed height. If you only wants to lift it a bit for some storage, I don’t think you need any special tools. You can arrive anytime you want actually. If you want to get there before your roomates to raise the bed, you can coordinate with them.
No, I believe E is for Sophomores this year. As for AC, I don’t think E complex has AC for every room.
Yes they are adjustable. You can do it with a couple of friends if you decides to change the height of your bed.
You can park on any parking lots those couple of days. I don’t think Public Safety would give you troubles on that day.
Yes, you do. Unless you apply for room change with Reslife.
You can find the size of your room and floor plan of Hunt 3 here: Hunt Floor Plan. As you can see, there is a lounge facing the stairs on the first floor of Hunt 3. There are laundry rooms in Quad, you wouldn’t have it in your room.
Yes, both kitchens have both a microwave and a fridge.
The mattress is Twin XL and it’s 22 cm thick. The size is L203cm W99cm H22cm.
It depends on how much rug space you want. The rooms in Hall Hall are in genera 188 square feet big. You can find floor plan of Hall Hall here: http://reslife.rpi.edu/update.do?artcenterkey=86
I don’t think there’s any constructions in North this summer.
No, there’s no cork strips on the walls. You can hang things using sticky adhesive hooks. For photo frames, you can hang them as long as you are not using nails.
1) Unfortunately no, North has no A/C
2) The laundry room is on the first floor right next to east stairs.
Yes. In BARH forced triples, there are three beds, two are bunk beds and one is lofted (bunk beds without the bottom bed). I don’t think you can order lofts in forced triples since they are already lofted.
Unfortunately no, North does not have A/C.
Yes you may. Do ask your RA during orientation though. Last year they wouldn’t allow lamps with any cover around the light bulbs. These policies may change from year to year.
The space is pretty wide, you can probably fit your chair in it. However, keep in mind that you’ll still need to find a space in your dorm to place the original dorm chair.
With lofted beds, there’s always some safety concerns. I would recommend getting lofted bed through school’s recommendation.
You can find pictures on our site under Quad. There’s a picture of a room in Hunt 2 third floor. The ceiling is pretty high, height of a bunked bed would fit.
Yes, each side has one window with an A/C unit.
Yes, I believe you can fit it under beds.
In forced triples, the beds are already bunked or lofted.
