    Residential Life

    Welcome Home to UAlbany

Live Better on Campus

Our residence halls and apartments are where you’ll lay your head at night, but it’s the friends you’ll make and the experiences you’ll share in our vibrant and engaging community that will make UAlbany truly feel like home.

You’ll be within walking distance of classes, club meetings, dining, bus stops, fitness centers, a state-of-the-art medical center, events and more — so, it’s no surprise that students who live on campus all four years do better academically, feel more connected to the campus community and graduate at higher rates than students who don’t.
