Living on campus is the best way to make friends, immerse yourself in campus life, and get a new perspective. And at UAlbany, campus living comes with all the comforts Most undergraduate students live in one of our four residential complexes, which we call quads. Each quad offers a variety of living options, from suites to doubles to singles, and all rooms are wired for phone, internet, and cable.
Each quad also comes with its own dining hall, where you'll find fresh salads, pastas, sandwiches, vegetarian and kosher options, and more. Additional options are available at the Campus Center, including Wendy's, Au Bon Pain, and Dreidel's Kosher Kafe, and you can always use your Podium Account to buy food at area restaurants.
After your freshman year, you'll become eligible to live in one of our theme houses or living/learning communities. From the Chinese language to women's leadership, these communities provide opportunities for members to explore shared interests together.
When you're ready for apartment life, two on-campus complexes offer furnished apartments where you can do your own cooking and get a taste of independent living. Our Department of Residential Life can help you find off-campus housing, too.
