Welcome to Residence Life at Sage College of Albany
- ACRH Housing Contract [pdf]
For some people, living in the residence hall is what college is all about. Sage College of Albany's on-campus, coed residence hall provides living and learning space for about 100 first-year students in good academic standing.
Sage believes that residence halls should be active living/learning centers that compliment the academic programs of the College. Students can participate ina variety of social and educational programs, such as cultural dinners, aromatherapy workshops, fitness workshops, off-campus trips, and Halloween parties for area youth.
Living successfully in residence halls is dependent upon balancing individual freedoms with sensitivity and respect for the rights of others. A willingness to discuss, negotiate, and compromise is essential. Individual and cultural differences make up the unique texture of the residence halls, and students are encouraged to learn from one another.

College Suites offers Sage students apartment-style living with new, fully furnished 4-bedroom units. If you are interested in living at College Suites, please contact the Office of Residence Life for information; our office works directly with the management of College Suites for you (and you do not have to pay a deposit!). Students who choose to live in College Suites are always welcome to attend any programs and events on the Sage campus and in the Albany Campus Residence Hall. Although the apartments at College Suites come with full kitchens, residents are also welcome to choose meal plans on campus.
For those students living off-campus, Sage makes commuting easy. We provide plenty of parking, on-campus dining options, and a comfortable commuter lounge.
