World of the UAlbany Transfer Experience 

The World of UAlbany Transfer Experience is an incredible opportunity for you to possibly live with and meet other transfer students while discovering together how to become a successful student at the University. This community is open to students of all majors who share a passion for learning more about the University at Albany and how to become involved on campus. 


As a member of the World of Transfer Success, you can live with other new transfer students who share your interest in meeting new people and succeeding academically at UAlbany, or live anywhere on or off campus and participate. Living with other transfers who have similar goals and interests means you will have a supportive network of peers right from the start. You can study together and attend social and co-curricular programming together. Friendships form quickly in L-LCs!


World of the UAlbany Transfer Experience community members will have unique opportunities and experiences to get involved at UAlbany and connected to the UAlbany community. These include:

  • Taking an 8-week long seminar about the University at Albany experience.
  • Gathering for meals with your group and weekly meetings/activities with the Transfer Transition Leader.
  • Access to resources that will support your academic success.
  • Participating in events with other Transfer Communities.
  • Performing community service with your community.
  • Becoming a vital and engaged member of the University at Albany community.
