College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live at home with family.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms as well as the school are nice however the policies instilled for obedience are over the top an can become quite irritating very often

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: So the Dorm's are VERY freakin expensive and i found that living in a apartment or renting a room is way cheaper then living on campus. Living on campus it's self was Okay, I don't think i would really do it again because the strictness was very annoying and i felt like i was a freshmen when i most certainly was not! anyways if your family don't make bread, and you don't want to be 100,00o in debt then i suggest that you rent an apartment or a room.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Love the building and being in my city

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The housing is a very quick walk to school as well as times square and central park being so close. They are very strict and I wish they would ease up a little but that ensures the safety of everyone. The entire dorm and campus areas are extememly clean and the housing process is easy. Although you have to move in my your last name and I am a W so I dont get the top choice.

The freshman dorm is the 55th Street Residence Hall located in Midtown East Manhattan. The state-of-the-art building houses 500 students in 32 floors. The 55th Street hall is in the heart of Manhattan—10 blocks from Central Park, five blocks from Bloomingdale's, and with tons of restaurants surrounding the area. Each room is equipped with a full bathroom and kitchen (but no oven—just a stove top). There is no Wi-Fi, so students use Ethernet cords, but there is cable! Overall, the dorms are beautiful, and students feel spoiled.

A few things to be aware of: the lounges are normally occupied by acting majors working on their scenes, so it's best to study in your room. There is a very strong alcohol and drug policy, and room searches are conducted periodically. If you are caught twice, you are out. Also, it is impossible to have a one-night stand. To have an overnight guest, you must have all of your roommates sign an agreement and have it turned in to Residence Life by 11 p.m. that night. Residents are only permitted to have guests six times a month and cannot have a guest for more than three consecutive nights.
