Dutch Quad

Welcome to Dutch Quad 

Dutch Quad is primarily home to our freshmen and sophomore students, many of whom are student-athletes and international students. It is close to the Campus Center, the Physical Education Complex, SEFCU Arena and Casey Stadium. Download a campus map.

The quad offers a traditional residence hall environment, with a Resident Assistant (RA) assigned to each floor of the low-rise buildings and on every other floor of the tower. RAs live on site and serve as a resource for students. 

Dutch Quad’s buildings include Stuyvesant Tower, Beverwyck Hall, Bleeker Hall, Ryckman Hall, Schuyler Hall, Ten Broeck Hall, Ten Eyck Hall, Van Cortlandt Hall and Van Rensselaer Hall.
