Rensselaer Union has the responsibility of overseeing several facilities on campus, many of these facilities and operations are housed within the Rensselaer Student Union, a building at the corner of Sage Avenue and 15th street, containing meeting rooms, businesses, dining, and social spaces. The Rensselaer Student Union is a place to study and attend special events or visit the RPI Bookstore or the Clubhouse Pub. In addition to the Rensselaer Student Union, Rensselaer Union manages fitness and weight training facilities and wellness programs at the Mueller Center, performance spaces in the RPI Playhouse, musical practice spaces in the J-Building, the Academy Hall dance studio and auditorium, and more.
Students active in campus clubs and organizations, club sports, campus programming, student employment, and student government engage in experiential learning through hands on work with budgets, group coordination, conflict management, and overall personal and professional development. Rensselaer Union encourages all members to be active and engaged to better the campus community for all.
