These words have described Saint Rose since 1920, when the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet—known for their dedication to unity with all people—founded the college. From the outset, while building on a liberal arts curriculum, the College emphasized the professional training of teachers for which it is renowned even today, along with a diverse offering of majors and programs.


Undergraduates can do scholarly research. It happens all the time at Saint Rose. Our students propose their own projects, apply their coursework to topics that interest them, frame questions, test hypotheses, and even present their findings at academic conferences. 

Meanwhile, Saint Rose gives these researchers many opportunities to excel. We support student travel to conferences to present research, award summer research grants to undergraduates, publish an annual Undergraduate Research Journal, and hold an all-College undergraduate research symposium each spring.

Student services

The Student Solution Center is designed to answer students’ and parents’ questions involving the Bursar, Financial Aid and Registrar offices. Because these three student services are interrelated, the College has created a one-stop resource where students can address their needs and gain advice about all three aspects at once. Our office is also a good place to start when you don’t know where else to go with a question. 

Housing services

Housing on campus is available to students enrolled in full-time undergraduate and graduate programs. Generally, students must be at least 17 years of age, enrolled full time in an undergraduate program, and remain academically engaged at The College of Saint Rose to live in College-provided housing. A student whose course load falls below full-time status should contact the Office of Residence Life for permission to remain a resident.

Library services

The Library is made up of three administrative units:

  • The Neil Hellman Library (main library)
  • The Standish Curriculum Library 
  • The College Archives & Special Collections 

 The Library has approximately 220,000 volumes, 560 active print journal subscriptions and 3,000 videos in various formats. In addition we provide access to over 90,000 e-books through five platforms.

ICT services

ITS provides students with the technology resources you need to help you achieve your academic goals:

  • Computer labs (Mac and PC)
  • Access to campus-wide software (Google Apps, Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite)
  • Wireless Internet Access
  • Learning Management Software (Blackboard)
  • Access to research databases

Medical services

The Health Service offers a walk-in clinic Monday – Friday.  You do not need to make an appointment to see the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner as students are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

All students registered for six or more credits, who have paid a health service fee, are eligible to use Health Services.

Student Life

Campus life

With a campus in the heart of historic Albany—the capital of New York State—Saint Rose is known for its rigorous scholarship and vibrant campus community.

The data tell a compelling story: students who live on the Saint Rose campus do better academically, get more involved in activities, and stay connected long after graduation. That’s why we’ve provided such a wealth of options for housing—Victorian-style houses and furnished apartments, suites and townhouses, and traditional dorms as well.

We are equipped to facilitate all facets of resistance and cardio training for the athlete as well as the exercise enthusiast. Our central location, in the Events and Athletics Center, is convenient for students, faculty and staff.
