We study new random matrix symmetry classes which arise in models of non-interacting quasi-particles in disordered superconductors. Within the Altland-Zirnbauer classification scheme these are class C (with time-reversal symmetry broken and spin-rotaion invariance intact), and class D where both symmetries are broken. Preliminary studies of the two remaining symmetry classes CI and DIII are briefly mentioned. New results are presented pertaining to the 3d realization of class C, which, physically, corresponds to a layered superconductor.
