    Student Life

  • From the moment you set foot on campus, you will be immersed in a creative community of legendary teachers, mentors, and students with a limitless range of passions and interests, ready to collaborate. Discover a new home among a diverse and vibrant collective of artists, scholars, activists and innovators.

  • Imagine living in the nexus of the world's most creative community. Simply walking outside of your dorm or classroom brings you face-to-face with some of the most important and innovative artists and performance spaces in the world. You'll find opportunities to perform at legendary venues and new spaces. Gig, perform, create, audition, collaborate-the opportunities are boundless and yours to take as you chart your course as an artist and performer.

  • Our world-class performing arts building, Arnhold Hall, is specifically designed for artists of all kinds, with state-of-the-art practice rooms, recording facilities, sound booths, ensemble classrooms, adjustable performance spaces, and percussion classrooms. We are the only college with a performance venue in our lobby: the Glassbox Theater.

  • Situated in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, our urban campus places students at the center of one of the world's most vibrant and diverse arts communities. In our residence halls, dramatists live with sociologists, and anthropology students with jazz musicians. Our on-campus residences extend from Greenwich Village to Chelsea, offering students the opportunity to live and learn in a nurturing, supportive, and collaborative environment and make friends for life.
