Residential Life

New students

Hello Incoming First-Year Students!

All first-year students will be on campus to create community and be introduced to our exciting approach to learning. Students will live in one of our first-year residence halls with their classmates and participate in the residential curriculum.

We are still working on exactly what housing will look like for the Fall of 2021 taking into consideration the impacts of COVID-19. Stay tuned for more information.

There was a "Tuesdays With Union" session held on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 about first-year housing. If you missed it, you can access the recording here.

If you have questions, please contact Residential Life at or (518) 388-6117

Move-in information:

Move in information for Fall 2021 will be posted soon.

Transfer students:

The Residential Life Office will contact you via email to discuss housing options and communicate your housing placement.


Commuter students are those who live with their parent/guardian at the parent/guardian's permanent residence which is within 30 miles of the Union campus. Proof of residency is required. Please email us if you plan to commute from home.
