Off-Campus Housing: Many students choose to stay on campus due to the location. But some students feel like they need their own space away from the school. Since you are with the same small group of people all day, some people find it nice to get away from all of that. The price for an apartment in the city is often very high, but students usually find roommates to help cover the expensive costs. Transportation is very easy to and from the school with the use of the subways.

Off-Campus Dining: Being in New York City means there is food located everywhere. Having so many options is very convenient for students who wish to rehearse late into the night. Also, there is an app called Seamless that delivers food from a very large selection of restaurants for students who do not have time to go to the Cafe or go grab food from a restaurant.

Administration: The administration is great at the school. They try very hard to make the environment very friendly and welcoming. The freshmen orientation may seem very tedious and long, but the staff does a very good job getting out tons of information. Most students want to be practicing or rehearsing, so the administration does a good job accommodating students to their needs. In the dorms they've put practice rooms on each floor so that musicians do not keep other students awake. There are strict quite hours however, that require students to be done practicing by a certain time.

Scholarships: Once the school has selected their incoming freshmen class, they make every effort to get the kids they want to attend. They offer very good financial aid to kids that need it.

Party Scene: Students at the school are very dedicated to their art form, therefore the party scene is not very big. On the weekends, many students choose to stay in and practice, but when the occasional party arrises many students attend. Parties are usually held at student apartments and they help bond the students. Students generally do not have classes with students from different divisions (dance, drama, music), so meeting other students at parties can help build new relationships and make new connections. The school also puts on several events throughout the year such as a Halloween dance, or a Snowball that many students choose to attend.

Campus Food: The Cafe is shared with the School of American Ballet, and is located on the 3rd floor of the dorms. Most students are ok with the food served. The Cafe contains a pizza bar, a grill, a salad bar, a sandwich station, and an entree station. There is usually a fairly large variety in the choices you can make. The cafe does a good job accommodating to vegetarian and vegan options as well.

Campus Housing: Living in New York City as a college student is a dream come true. At the Juilliard School, you are living right in Lincoln

Center, which provides you with many opportunities to see different shows in all art forms. Many people tend to stay in the dorms for the connivence it brings to students. The school is connected to the dorms by a short walkway outside. With student's busy schedules, being that close to the school is very helpful.

The living arrangements are arranged in a suite style living. In each suite there are 5 dorms, three double rooms and two single rooms. Also, each suite is equipped with a living room area and three bathrooms, which all contain a toilet and sink, one with a bathtub, and one with a shower. The bathrooms and suite are cleaned weekly by students to keep the environment sanitary.

Freshmen are required to live in the dorms, while upperclassmen are put into the housing lottery. To apply for housing for the following year, students are required to attend three informational seminars called Horizons. These seminars range from a variety of relevant young adult related topics from information on substance abuse and warning signs of sexual assault, to a lesson on the history of hip hop dancing. Many students attend these because they want to stay in the dorms for their convenient location.

Being such a small school, the social atmosphere created amongst students is incredible. Everyone shares a common passion for the performing arts, and the school is constantly putting on events for students to participate in. Having the school located in the heart of Manhattan also gives students the chance to explore the city and see what all New York has to offer.

Campus Housing: The RA's could be stricter on cleaning day.

Technology: The computers are mostly Mac's and they're all state-of-the-art equipped with accessible printers as well. While the computer lab is great, sometimes the computers throughout the School are not working properly. The inconsistency should be addressed.

Campus Quality: Most Juilliard students live on campus. Student Affairs usually has some sort of activities going on for the students...be it a holiday celebration, guest speakers on subjects that relate to entertainment careers, free food and movies. Our campus is fabulous. For dance, drama and music we pretty much have state of the art facilities to study our craft.

Campus Housing: As a freshman, students are mandated to live on campus in the dorm. My experience was not that good. Our suite was very outdated, it smelled, bathrooms/showers were in horrible condition with mold and extensive signs of where on the ceiling and floors. The students were also responsible for cleaning of the suite and bathrooms...that was like the beginning of germs being built up for the entire year. Students don't know how to clean and clean so that germs are not being spread. I hated the experience in the dorms because of the filth and condition.

Guys & Girls: They are very dedicated to their studies but also very nice. Everyone works very hard and very long hours because the classes are very long and then there is a lot of practice time needed. When one goes out to unwind they are super nice and very encouraging. The girls are really pretty and everyone is super smart. There is a wonderful diversity with people from 39 countries.

Parking: There is no parking for the school, you'd have to park on the street and that is VERY hard and expensive (plus you would need to keep moving the car every few hours during the day. There is a parking garage for the area but that is VERY expensive. You really do not need a car at all.

Transportation: You can get public transportation (subways) a block away and taxis (but they are can get very expensive) are not hard to find. Feet work great and it is a wonderful area to find everything you need close by.
