  • Covid-19 Update Regarding Fall 2021 Housing

    Russell Sage College anticipates a return to normal for the 2021-2022 academic year. This means that all rooms will revert to their normal occupancy (single, double, or triple) and students will be able to elect to live with a roommate for the next academic year. This also means that room rates will be adjusted to reflect this change, and students opting to live in single rooms will be charged a higher rather than those living with a roommate.
