Rensselaer’s Union is one of the few student unions that is truly run by students. Student officials are elected each spring by the student body.
The building, located on the corner of 15th Street and Sage Avenue, features a campus-wide technology and telecommunications infrastructure that rivals many schools in the country.
Popular stops on the lower level include the campus bookstore, a U.S. post office, bowling alleys, several dining options including a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop (Rensselaer is the first college to have a Ben & Jerry’s on campus!), and a branch of the HSBC bank.
The main level offers the RAA (Rensselaer Alumni Association) lounge, and the McNeil room (another dining location and evening study area).
On the third floor, there are student government offices, the school newspaper, and other business offices.
