Barton Hall is one of ten residence halls surrounding the Commons building, the largest campus dining hall. Barton was first opened in Fall 2000 and is our newest residence hall. Half of the rooms are arranged in pairs with a full bath between. The other rooms share a floor bath and are grouped to 7 to 8 rooms per floor. The building features floor lounges and several meeting rooms.
First year students at Rensselaer enjoy a variety of housing options. The predominance of freshmen live in two person rooms in recently renovated residence halls that are populated almost entirely by freshmen, with the exception of upper-class RAs and LAs. Students may also be assigned double or triple rooms in the Quad or triple rooms in Barton Hall, where the largest residence hall rooms for freshmen are located.
