Russell Sage College is so diverse, it has more than one center. The compact campus has a central meeting and eating place -- Buchman Pavilion, a student center McKinstry Student Center, and an athletic and recreation center known as Robison.

It provides a central social space for the campus community and links historic classroom and residence halls and the pedestrian Ferry Street Plaza.
