"Off campus" refers to apartments and other dwellings for RPI students not directly managed by Residence Life. Rather, a landlord manages a rental property, and the landlord follows state and local laws and guidelines. Our goal is to help educate you on how to find the safest, most secure, and most affordable place to stay while studying at RPI.
Graduate students may live in City Station or search for an apartment off-campus through Jump Off Campus or other search engine. Use your RPI email to access Jump Off Campus.
The information presented in this section was compiled by a team of Rensselaer students, staff and community leaders interested in helping you, as a student, to make more informed decisions about where you choose to live in the future, to be successful living off-campus, and to create a better quality of life for all who live in the neighborhoods surrounding Rensselaer. We think you'll find that our Guide to Living Off Campus contains lots of valuable information to help you navigate living successfully and comfortably in the community.
