Life at Clarkson

Living/Learning Communities

At Clarkson, nearly all of our undergraduate students live on our 640-acre wooded and riverfront campus in Potsdam, New York.

  • Students live in either traditional residence halls, suite-style halls or on-campus apartments, depending on their interest and class year. We also have Greek and theme housing as well.
  • A newer addition to the first-year residential experience at Clarkson are our living and learning communities, where students with similar interests live together and participate in programs that cater to their academic, social and personal needs.
  • Examples of living and learning communities include: Outdoor Enthusiasts, Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE), The Golden Gamers, The Artists’ Guild, Cultural Enrichment, Sustainability, FIRST Robotics, ROTC, Movie Fanatics, STEM Education, Men in Business, Pre-Health Professionals, Foodies, Live FIT, Go Knights! and the Honors Program.
