Amenities and Services

The Housekeeping Staff is responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of our residence halls, specifically the public areas during the academic year.  As a member of our campus community, we do expect that you pick up after yourself by cleaning your dishes and removing them from the kitchen when appropriate.  The Housekeeping Staff is not responsible for cleaning areas that are excessively dirty or treated poorly.  We expect that you will be respectful in the residence halls to the staff who help take care of these spaces.  You will get to know your Housekeeper quite well throughout the year, so please be sure to say hi when you see them since they are such an integral part of our campus community.

 

The Maintenance Staff is responsible for fixing any repairs in your room and/or your building.  All maintenance requests are handled based on their priority and will be taken care of as soon as possible – typically within 5 business days.  Please work with your RA or the Office of Residence Life for any routine maintenance requests.  If you encounter an emergency, please contact the Office of Safety and Security to have someone from the Maintenance staff reached.

 

Please do your part to treat the residence halls as respectfully as you would your own home and keep them clean and damage-free.

All residence hall rooms are furnished with a standard twin bed, a desk, chair, dresser, and a wardrobe or built-in closet. All College-provided furniture must remain in the room throughout the academic year and be in place upon checking out of the room. Due to a limited amount of furniture, the College determines where beds may be bunked or lofted for space reasons. Additionally, if a room is not filled to capacity, the extra furniture must still remain in the room as there is no space available for us to remove the furniture and store it.

 

All beds are standard twin beds. Neither cinder blocks nor any other material may be used to elevate residence hall beds or other furniture.

Most residence halls are equipped with at least one cooking unit in a common area, which can be used by the residents of that building.  We expect that you will keep your kitchen clean out of respect for other students in your building.  Please do not leave any food unattended when during preparation.  After you have finished, please wash and put your dishes away, clean up and spills on the floor, stove, counter and in the microwave.

All residence halls and Centennial Hall are equipped with washers and dryers. Students residing in other College-owned apartments are not provided with laundry facilities. Problems with these machines should be reported to the Office of Residence Life or the Resident Assistant.

Mailboxes for resident students are located in the lower level of the Events and Athletics Center. Each student is assigned their own mailbox. The student’s mailing address is:

Mail delivery is made in accordance with postal schedules.

  • Telephones: Due to the high volume of cell phone usage by our students, room phones will only be made available based on requests to Telecommunications.  All students are strongly encouraged to program the number for Security into their cell phones, 518-454-5187.

 

  • Cable TV: All resident student rooms are equipped to receive Time Warner Cable’s Standard 80 channels. This is included in the student’s room rate and therefore, there is not an additional charge for this service. Any problems related to cable should be reported by contacting ITS.

 

  • Internet Access: All residence hall rooms are equipped with one computer jack per resident of the room as well as access to the College’s wi-fi network. Additionally, there are a number of computer labs on campus for students to use, including those located in Brubacher and Lima Halls.

First-year students are allowed to have 1 refrigerator and 1 microwave per room.  Transfer and returning students are allowed to have 1 refrigerator per room.  Refrigerators must be UL approved, Energy Star rated, and be less than 115 volts/3.1 cubic feet.  Microwaves in first-year student rooms must be UL approved and not exceeding 700 watts/0.7 cubic feet.

The College of Saint Rose does not have the facilities available to provide storage to students. Therefore, any furniture that is set up in a student’s room when they check-in must remain in that student’s room throughout the academic year and be present upon check-out, regardless of the number of students in that room. Additionally, we are not able to provide storage to students over the summer break. All belongings must be removed from a student’s room upon check-out. If a student needs storage for their belongings, there are a number of storage locations in the Capital District that they can explore. Note: If a student is keeping their same room for the next academic year, all belongings still MUST be moved out. A moving fee may be charged to a student’s account if belongings are left in a student’s room at check-out. The College is not responsible for any lost or damaged items.
