For Freshmen, Home Can Be Right In The Heart of the New York City Campus.

Live and learn in the main tower on the New York City Campus! Housing approximately 500 first-year Pace students, Maria’s Tower comprises floors seven through 16 of the building, which means you can take a short elevator ride to class, the library, gym, and dining facilities. Each double occupancy room features cable TV connection and an Ethernet connection (no cord provided; wireless internet is available throughout the building). A range of theme floor options (as well as non-themed floors) are available to students. Maria’s Tower is an alcohol and substance-free building. Common areas include a TV lounge and a study lounge on every floor, a kitchen, and a laundry room on the 17th floor, which is free of charge to all residents.


  • Typical room size: 200–250 square feet
  • 24-hour security: students must show ID as they enter One Pace Plaza, and again when they transition to the 4th floor elevator that services the residential floors
  • Window treatment: black window blinds (provided)
  • Bed style: extra-long twin (loftable; in some rooms, beds are required to be lofted due to available space or room configuration)
  • Cable service provided to all University-owned residence halls, through the University, via an agreement with local cable service providers.
