About Albany, NY


The city of Albany is found in upstate New York, and has remained the city’s capital for hundreds of years. The city was chartered in the late 1600s, and although it remained one of the nation’s most populous cities through the early 1800s, today it is simply a middle-sized US city. It is dwarfed in size for example, by its southern brethren in New York City, which many consider to be the media and economic capital of the country, albeit unofficially. As of 2010, Albany had a population of nearly 100,000.

  • University at Albany

    Where do you go if you want lots of tulips and off-campus apartment options? The University at Albany of course! Why? Because that is where the Tulip Festival is hosted and where lots of apartments are just waiting for the picking!

    More than Just Tulips

    While you are at the University at Albany, you will pick up more than just a few tulips. You will also pick up a few nuggets of wisdom from your professors, a few extra muscles from the IM dodgeball team you play on, a few friends from all the clubs and student organizations you can join, and a little carpal tunnel from all the term papers you will write. This school really is prime for the picking thanks to all its colleges, schools, classes, and extracurricular activities that students get to choose from. Creating a bouquet of classes that don’t match (as in classes outside of your major) is always a wise choice, too, because it enables you to experiment and expand your horizons and interests! In fact, the General Education classes ensure that everyone’s bouquet has a little spice, because students must take classes in several different fields of studies to fulfill their GEs. By the end of your four years at the University at Albany, you will have a nice bouquet of skills to take home (besides the carpal tunnel).

    Apartments for the Picking

    Albany, NY has lots of things in it besides the annual Tulip Festival that calls in the spring. It is also home to natural beauties like the Catskill Mountains, the Adirondack Park, the Green Mountains, and the Howe Caverns. When students aren’t exploring, traversing, hiking, or climbing the magnificent wilderness that surrounds, they are enjoying the college town vibe of the New York’s capital, shopping, bar hopping, going to restaurants, museum and art galleries in downtown. Albany has lots to offer in terms of student-friendly activities, but even more to offer in the way of off-campus apartments! 43% of undergrads choose to live off campus and take advantage of their beautiful city by being a part of it. Places like Hamilton Street, Myrtle Avenue, Spring Street, Hudson Avenue and State Street are just a few examples of places students can look to pick out their new place! For even more ideas on how to find an apartments that fits you best, visit our apartment search guides!

    Flowering Fun

    As your time goes by at the University at Albany and you become more familiarized with your surroundings, you will have more and more fun! Start off your year by dancing and meeting people at Lark Street’s annual block party, LarkFest. When spring approaches, gather some tulips and head down to Washington Park with a good book and a soccer ball. Perhaps you will even make it to the famous Washington Avenue Armory for live performances! For something more local on a weekend night, catch the CDTA and head down to a cool hangout like The Bayou Café or Café Hollywood at 275 Lark St.! By the end of the year you will see how much your fun has flowered since you started!
