College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live in the dorms, but a lot of people who live there don't like it. I do know a decent number of people who rent apartments in the surrounding neighborhood, though the majority commute from across the city.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but the social atmosphere is great

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The buildings are new and the living situation is more like apartments than dorms which is nice

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus and have no experience with this topic matter.

College Senior

Campus Housing: i have never been to the dorms

No one wants to come to college in New York City and end up living on the streets. That's why City offers the Towers as a campus housing option. They're located a few blocks from the College and within walking distance of the 1 train. The Towers are only a few years old, so in contrast to most of the College's neo-Gothic architecture, they're pretty modern like the NAC building. Most of the students that live in the Towers come from upstate New York, elsewhere in the United States, or foreign countries. Keep in mind that what the Towers give is not a genuine New York experience. Students here get the traditional dorm experience, which is a bit different from living in city housing. If you're looking for a more authentic New York life, a solo apartment or a city condo with a group of friends is the better option.

From the outside, the Towers may not seem fancy, but inside they are really something to see. The modern buildings have many places to socialize. There is a student lounge, a seminar room, and a fitness room, and the dorms host tons of events for residents. There are multiple room options to choose from, and they all come with their own kitchen, so there is no need to worry about meal plans. Since you can cook for yourself, stocking up on Ramen noodles isn't a bad idea.
