Troy, New York

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is located in Troy, New York, on a 275 acre hilltop campus overlooking the Hudson River.

In the midst of a culturally rich population center surrounded by the Adirondack, Catskill, Berkshire, and Green mountains, the Rensselaer campus is only a few hours by car from Boston, New York City, and Montreal.

Within easy driving distance from campus, Rensselaer students, faculty, and staff enjoy world-class alpine and cross-country skiing, hiking, camping, sailing, biking, golf, whitewater kayaking, and more.

From north, east, south, or west, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is centrally located near major highways in New York state. 

An emerging area called Tech Valley is attracting world-class educational and research facilities to an area already known for its physical beauty and low cost of living.

We encourage prospective students to explore Rensselaer fully by planning a visit to the campus. Full-time applicants showing exceptional merit may be eligible for funded visits.

We look forward to hearing further from you. Come see the excitement, innovation and entrepreneurial nature that is Rensselaer!

Attend an upcoming event to meet with Rensselaer faculty, staff and graduate admission representatives to learn more about Rensselaer's graduate programs.
