About Third North

Third North provides a welcoming and inclusive community for over 950 first-year students. To help facilitate the community, enhance your academic experience, plan events, and provide support, there are 29 Resident Assistants, one Resource Center Assistant, one Resident Life Assistant, and two Faculty-Fellows in Residence (Robin Nagle & Mosette Broderick) with their families. Third North is home to four "Explorations" floors (a.k.a. theme floors or living-learning communities) where students can apply based on the themes. We also house a Choices, or substance-free floor, on which students commit to a lifestyle without substances. We have a wide range of facilities in Third North, including the Courtyard Café Dining Hall, a mini-theater, dance studio, music practice rooms, game room, laundry rooms, TV lounge, many study lounges throughout the building, a computer lab, and an incredible outdoor courtyard at the center of it all. Our hall also features a very active hall government, called Third Avenue Government (TAG), which advocates for their fellow residents while also planning great events throughout the year. Check out our blog to learn more about Third North!

Each residence hall at NYU has a dedicated team of professional and student staff to ensure students' safety, strong sense of community and a smooth, efficient administrative operations. The professional staff is made up of a Residence Hall Director, Residence Hall Resource Manager and a Residence Hall Assistant Director. In collaboration with the Department of Public Safety and the Office of Facilities and Construction Management, this team will help shape your residential experience at NYU.
