Housing at The New School is more than just four walls and a roof. Living on campus provides opportunities to form bonds, ease the transition from home to college, and make new friends for life. Our Residential Education staff is available to support
you as you live side by side with students in different colleges and from different backgrounds and make connections, meet collaborators, and learn more about yourself while living on your own for the first time.
Our mission is to create an environment that fosters a safe, inclusive, and just community in which students engage through meaningful residential learning experiences. Our goals fall in three areas:
- Safety and responsibility
- Community and connections
- Personal development and accountability
If you'd like additional information or if we can support you in any way, please email us at [email protected] or give us a call at 212.229.5459.
“Living on campus has been a dream. I’m on Fifth Avenue, like two seconds away from everything, which is really nice."
Each of our four residence halls is co-ed, with the option to select gender-inclusive housing, and each includes a lounge, an art studio, a music practice room, a kitchen, and washers and dryers. Explore our housing options in Greenwich Village:
Each residence hall has a team of staff members tasked with creating a community where everyone belongs. Our Resident Advisors (RAs) and Head Residents (HRs) are the backbone of this community, working with our Hall Councils and Special Interest Communities to ensure that there are open doors and open minds.
We offer a safe and convenient home base in Manhattan for anyone taking classes, working, or completing an internship in New York City during the summer. Rooms are available near Union Square and in Chelsea.
Many students choose to take advantage of living in New York City through off-campus housing. Housing and Residential Education maintains a list of apartments for lease, sublet, or share.
We pride ourselves on offering chef-designed, diverse, and healthful food. Students have access to farm-to-table meals that promote the health of the community and the planet. Learn more about available meal plans for eating on and off campus.
