Indigenous Quad Virtual Tour

Indigenous Quad is comprised of all freshmen. The majority of the low-rise buildings surrounding the tower provide a traditional residence hall environment with community bathroom facilities located centrally on each floor. Mohawk Tower, Seneca Hall, and Tuscarora Hall are suite style and have internal bathrooms. Laundry rooms are located in the basement of each building, while Seneca and Tuscarora Halls also have laundry rooms on each floor. There is a Resident Assistant assigned to each floor/area. They are responsible for serving as a resource and facilitating community development on their respective floor/area.

Indigenous Quad has its own state-of-the-art fitness center, ran by Campus Recreation, as well as a renovated dining facility and a game room.

The CHARGE Resource Room is located in Mohawk Tower. The resource room houses a library and other resources that help University at Albany residents develop a respect for diversity within racial and ethnic groups.

There is a SEFCU ATM located in the lobby of Seneca & Tuscarora Halls. More information about banking services on campus may be found by visiting

Adirondack, Cayuga, Mahican, Montauk & Oneida Halls: Traditional corridor style rooms with communal bathrooms centrally located on each floor.

Adirondack, Cayuga, Mahican, and Montauk Halls offer recess housing, meaning they remain open for students during all University recesses.

Hello and Welcome Indigenous Quad Residents!

The IQ Professional Staff Team is so happy to have you with us this year! Just like all of you, we have very different backgrounds, interests, hobbies, and traditions, but we are connected in the way that our favorite part of this job is seeing all of YOU! Some of us love raising plants (or fake plants?), some of us love collecting vinyl records, some of us love bringing people together with the food we cook, and as you can see by our bright smiles, ALL of us love being here for ALL of you! Stop by the Quad Office any time to get to know us better. We can’t wait!
