Choose a Dyson House and you’ll have a home for your interests waiting for you when you arrive on campus.
What are the Dyson Houses? Think Harry Potter houses or fraternity/sorority houses, but only in virtual terms and without magic. Each “House” is organized around a common theme, and will offer you a wide variety of intellectual, cultural and social activities to enhance your Pace experience. Don’t worry, there are no grades involved, no required courses or majors, and you can change Houses if your interests change. Some Dyson Houses have floors in Maria’s Tower or 182 Broadway, but you can belong to a Dyson House whether you are living on those floors, elsewhere on-campus, or commute.
New York City Houses
The Dyson Houses are not particular buildings, but four of the six NYC Houses offer a floor in one of our two freshman residence halls. Each House is organized around a common theme, and will offer you a wide variety of intellectual, cultural and social activities to enhance your Pace experience. There are six Houses, each containing roughly 100-125 first-year students plus some older students. Each House has a faculty “Don,” and peer leaders to organize events and provide guidance. Housemates meet during orientation, by email and Facebook, on their floors and at events. During the academic year, general Dyson House events and House-specific events — trips, plays, speakers, and gatherings — are planned every week. Read more about each New York City House:
- ACE (Animation, Comics, Entertainment) House
- Body and Mind (BAM) House
- Cinema House
- Gotham House
- One World House
