Dorm Life at Riverside
Riverside's barracks complex is a modern, climate-controlled residential dormitory divided into company units, each of which houses 40-50 students. Each company is supervised around the clock by Riverside TAC (Teacher/Advisor/Counselor) Officers. All dormitory rooms open to interior hallways that connect to our dining hall, the infirmary, and the primary academic and administrative buildings. The interior quadrangle serving the barracks complex is often used for recreation and company formations.
All students have access to computers supplied in their dorm rooms. RMA juniors and seniors in good standing (11th and 12th grades only) will be permitted the privilege of bringing a laptop personal computer to the Academy. Learn more about our Laptop Initiative.
On weekends at Riverside, there are plenty of organized campus activities, athletic events, and hanging out with friends in the Goomba Grill and recreational facilities.
Our activities staff also organizes off-campus trips, such as whitewater rafting, dinner and a movie, professional sports events, and amusement parks. Our proximity to Atlanta makes it possible to experience many other recreational and cultural opportunities.
When cadets are ready for a change of scenery, we offer a weekend leave program that enables students in good standing to leave campus and enjoy weekends with family and friends.
