Is North hall a good dorm? I haven’t seen a lot of people that want to live there and I’m wondering if there’s a reason why.
North hall is on the academic side of campus and further away from freshman hill, where most first year students are. That is the main reason I believe people may not want to live there.
Is there a dorm for freshman thats closest to the architecture school?
The closest dorms would be E-Complex or North. That being said it would be about 2 minutes closer than all other freshman dorms.
Are all north hall beds low to the ground or are they raised like bunks?
Beds are adjustable up to about 5 feet without lofting. Lofting (bunk bed height) is available through ResLife.

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.
Hello, I’m coming to RPI as a transfer student in August. Could you provide any photos of North by any chance? Also, does North have built-in closets or wardrobes? I will have a single.
I’m looking for photos, but I don’t have any! I do apologize; I never anticipated such an interest from older students and growth of the blog. I found a video that includes some footage of E-Complex, which is very similar to North. Footage of hall begins around 2:40.
