Blitman Commons

The Howard N. Blitman, P.E. ’50 Residence Commons expanded housing options for Rensselaer undergraduates — specifically sophomores, juniors, and seniors — while bringing approximately 300 students downtown to engage in the vibrant community of Troy. The new residence commons is situated at the bottom of the Rensselaer Approach, the century-old granite staircase that symbolizes the connection between the City of Troy and the Institute.

Blitman Commons has 148 double rooms and an apartment for live-in professional staff and four rooms for resident assistants. A select number of rooms also meet the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for accessible design. All of the rooms will have private bathrooms.

Other building amenities include a newly renovated dining hall that is open for breakfast and dinner service Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday, a small fitness center, access controlled entrances, limited on-site parking, and conference and classroom meeting spaces.
