Yes they are.
They only have one front door entry.
Colonie, RAHPs, Stacwyck, Poly, Bryckwyck, Quad, and Blitman
The housing options with single rooms are: Colonie, Stacyck, Poly, Bryckwyck, Quad
Yes to all of those.
Yes they do and each roommate will have a separate key to their rooom.
You need to get an E3 permit for $125. This is the permit for RAHPs B and allows you to park right in front of the RAHPs B apartments.
Albright is slightly closer by a street or two
Apartment living can be found in Stacwyck, Bryckwyck, RAHPS A or B and Polytechnic. We do not specifically have a dorm for transfer students.
RAHPs A no microwave is provided. Maintenance does not clean your bathroom or provide toilet paper.
There are laundry facilities for RAHPs, but they are not in your actual apartment. Depending on where your apartment is located, you may have to walk further than others.
Again, there is no best dorm. Some students prefer apartment style living their sophomore year so RAHPs and Stacwyck are appealing.
There is laundry attached to one of the buildings in RAHPs B
RPI will try and fill your spot, but if they can not, they will not charge you for the empty room.
Yes in RAHPs B there are two singles and a double for a total of 4 people. The double occupancy room has two beds. If it helps, here is a floor plan of RAHPs B http://www.rpi.edu/dept/cct/apps/reslife/images/plans/beman21-28.gif
Boys and girls are able to live in the same apartment in RAHPs Apartments
The only options for Gender Neutral Housing are RAHP A, RAHP B, and Polytechnic Apartments. It should be noted though that Polytechnic Apartments are only for Juniors and Seniors. From this I would say a good chance.
RAHPS A do not come with microwaves. The new renovations will update them to be comparable with RAHPS B. There will be no structural changes, just fixtures updates, repainted walls, new carpets, etc.
They have the closet dressers that you see in Barton or Blitman.
RAHPs rooms range from 96 Sq. Ft. to 103 Sq. Ft. I unfortunately do not have more specific room dimensions, but you can look at floor plans here.
Any apartments in RAHPS B will have new or one year old furniture, I believe. The majority, if not all, of RAHPS (on the South side of the stadium) got new furniture about 2 years ago. Posted January 2013.
Yes, BARH is within the RPI campus. You can see this by looking at a map. You will be surrounded by the athletic facilities as well as quite close to a few fraternities, residential homes, and RPI’s apartment style housing options: RAHPs and STACwyck. It’s as safe as any other residence hall.
“B” RAHPS must be a new name for the ones below Bryckwyck; these are the ones that I live in. I would highly recommend it. I prefer RAHPs to STACwyck because you don’t have strangers living above/below you, so you can sleep when you want. The neighbors are either quiet (in our case) or the walls are more soundproof. It’s the farthest housing from campus (maybe second to Colonie). These RAHPs have all been renovated this past summer or will be this coming summer; this includes all new furniture, full painting, new flooring throughout. Really (despite their age and general low build quality) it’s a good place for a college student to live.
Also… you should go on the housing tour when they offer them. You would be able to walk through RAHPs and see it for yourself.
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.
