Services for Commuters

How to keep informed about everything that is going on

MySage and Computing
MySage (previously Campus Cruiser) offers an email component that is a web-based graphical interface. This allows our system to be accessed from anywhere at anytime! The information sharing, calendars, news and announcements offer exciting tools for enhancing student life. Make sure to check your account often as this is the primary source for the faculty, staff and administration to reach you and to send you information.

Get Involved in the Sage Community - Join the Commuter Board
Welcome to the information hub of the Commuter Board, a club created by commuters for commuters (with, of course, an open invitation to residents who may also wish to lend themselves to the cause.) We realize that being a commuter has its difficulties, and as such we have made the purpose of our group the facilitation of the commuter experience here at Sage. These past three years since our reestablishment on campus after a long hiatus, we have striven to keep our fellow commuters up-to-date on the latest events happening on campus and encouraged other commuters to use the group as a forum for any issues or concerns.

What to do about food

Commuter meal plans and other useful information
Commuter meal plans can be used to make purchases at any Sage Dining operation on the Troy or Albany campuses for yourself, your friends, or your guests, but ONLY the person pictured on the ID card can present that card. If the card is lost and reported, funds can be transferred onto a replacement ID card. Commuter Meal Plan Selection Form

Where do I park again?

You've got mail!

Mail Delivery
The Office of College Services and the campus mail-room are located in the basement of the John Paine Building. This is where all mailboxes for full-time undergraduate resident and commuting students can be found. The majority of campus mail will be sent to this box, not your home address. All U.S. Mail and packages are delivered here. Please make sure to check your mailbox on a regular basis. That is how Campus Life and other departments communicate the events that are happening on campus and also where they tend to send vital information, including what to do for commencement. Be on the lookout!

The College Services hours are as follows:
Monday-Thursday 8:30-6:00
Friday 8:30-5:00

The Mail Lobby will be accessible any time the John Paine Building is open.

Please see that your mail is addressed this way:

Box #00
Russell Sage College
Troy, New York 12180
(do not put P.O. Box - it will go to the Troy Post Office, not the college)
