They will email you with directions for completing the online housing application through MyHousing (a separate portal used by students in university housing).

Housing Options

New York City

Incoming first-year students are housed in all our residence halls in the city campus, although most first-year students are placed in Maria’s Tower and 182 Broadway. First-year students will be able to preference their choices in their application, and we will make assignments based on those preferences. Each first-year student will be assigned to a room based on their building preferences, housing deposit date and any roommate requests (requesting specific roommates is optional).

Incoming first-year students are housed in Alumni Hall. Each first-year student will be assigned to a room in an area based on their First Year Interest Group preference, housing deposit date and any roommate requests (not required).

First Year Interest Groups are how we place first-year residents together in the residence halls on the Westchester Campus. Each community is built around a common interest, some of which are academically based. Our staff in communities program around this common interest. There is a full-time faculty or staff member connected to these First Year Interest Groups.
