Student Life

Archway

The Rensselaer campus provides a host of invaluable services and other resources that can be of help to you during your time here as a student. We've assembled a list of some of them here for your convenience.

Although the graduate curriculum is challenging, students still have time for other activities.

The area is an ideal mix of urban and rural environments. There are nearly a million people living in the Capital District (Troy, Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, and their suburbs), but Troy is within a few minutes of rural countryside and only a three hour drive within three major metropolitan areas, New York City, Montreal, and Boston.

Troy, Albany, and Schenectady offer numerous concerts, plays, museums, sports events, nightclubs, and restaurants serving food from many different cultures and countries, including India, China, Vietnam, Turkey, Italy, Indonesia, Ireland, and Japan.

There are numerous other colleges and universities in the area. Russell Sage College is also in Troy, and the State University of New York at Albany is across the river in Albany. Other colleges in the region include Skidmore, Union, Williams, Siena, St. Rose, Bennington, Albany Medical College, and Albany Law School.
