I am an incoming freshmen and was placed in a single in Hirai Hall. This isn’t one of the freshman dorm choices and wasn’t one of my picks. I was wondering if this is now a freshman dorm or is it mixed and I could be place in a suite with upperclassman? Also since this in nowhere near the freshman dining hall am I allowed to eat in a closer dining hall?

Hirai Hall is a part of E-Complex and singles in Hirai are big and close to academic buildings. I believe it was Sophomore housing though. You can email Reslife about it and ask if there’s a mistake. I you end up living in E, you can go to Sage Dining Hall for food, which is about only 5 minutes walk from E.


I was just wondering if juniors and seniors could live in quad and what junior and senior on campus housing options were.

Housing shifts slightly from year to year, depending on class sizes and other decisions. This year (2012-2013), only freshmen and sophomores are living in the Quad.

Juniors and seniors have options to live in RAHPs (Rensselaer Apartment Housing Projects), Stacwyck (Apartments on Sunset Terrace), Blitman, Colonie, Polytechnic, North Hall, E-Complex, and Bryckwyck.
