Commonly known as the “Grad Halls,” our graduate residential student community is comprised of two halls: Washington Square Village (WSV) and Stuyvesant Town (StuyTown). The Grad Halls are a diverse community of graduate students at NYU with approximately 250 residents and seven Resident Assistants. We strive to be a support system and important resource for our residential students.

Throughout the year, we collaborate with many campus offices, such as the Office of Graduate Student Life at the Student Resource Center and the Office for International Scholars, to bring you social, academic, and cultural programming. Our staff members are eager to have students engage with one another and take advantage of the many opportunities found at NYU and in NYC.

Both halls are located in the village. WSV is just steps from Washington Square Park and the main NYU campus, while StuyTown is near Union Square.  Both halls work together to create a dynamic environment and provide graduate students the opportunity to live in an apartment complex that is home to students, faculty, and members of the greater NYC community.
