• Housing and Residential Education

    When you choose to live in student housing, you can expect to encounter new challenges, meet new friends, and basically have a good time while in college. We certainly want you to experience all those things, but student housing offers even more benefits.

    The mission of Student Housing is to enhance your learning experience by building residential communities that support your academic and personal growth. We provide secure and supportive environments that can ease the transition from home to college. Through shared experiences and activities, you will discover and appreciate differences, learn to live more independently, and experience personal growth at an important time in your life.

    Each of our residences is unique and offers something for everyone. Our strong and very active residence life staff give students exceptional programming and close personal attention in all of our residences. Our Greenwich Village residences—the 13th Street Residence, Kerrey Hall, Loeb Hall, and Stuyvesant Park—are located near Union Square, Astor Place, and Washington Square Park.

    Not only do we give shelter to more than 1,700 students in the Greenwich Village and surrounding areas but we also provide exciting social and educational programs and activities for our residents. Through the enthusiasm and creativity of our resident advisors, you will be exposed to diverse programs that take advantage of the rich traditions of The New School and the cultural opportunities presented by New York City. Our residence life program is aimed at fostering the development of the whole student through purposeful programming that addresses your intellectual, artistic, and creative efforts. We strive to provide comfortable and inclusive environments that promote academic success, cultural awareness, and support for sustainability around campus and in the residence halls, and to enable students to develop new ideas and have diverse experiences.

    We realize that your decision to live on campus involves a number of factors. This website informs you about the many services and amenities provided in our residence facilities. If you still have questions, our knowledgeable Student Housing staff is available to assist you.
