I am trying to buy a shower curtain (yes, I know they are included but I want a pretty one) for my dorm next year in Polytechnic. What length should I get? I see some are 70″ long but thats hardly six feet and I’m not sure if it will reach to the floor and keep the water where its supposed to be. If you have any idea, I’d much appreciate it!

The showers in Polytech are step in showers, not bathtubs so I will think like 7ft curtains? I’m not completely sure to be honest.

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.


Can you please tell me about polytechnic commons apartments? Thanks

Yes. Polytechnic Commons Apartments are located at the intersection of Congress St. and 15th St. and it’s about a 10 minute walk from campus. This building is restricted to junior and senior students, I believe. Each apartment has 4 single rooms with a full bed, desk, chest of drawers, and hanging space in a dresser. In addition, there are two bathrooms each with a shower and toilet. Each bathroom has 2 sinks. In total, there are two showers, two toilets, and 4 sinks for the 4 residents. Finally there is a sizeable kitchen and living area. The kitchen is furnished with a table, 4 chairs, stove, oven, fridge, and sink. The living room is furnished with an arm chair, coffee table, and TV stand.
