About Lipton Hall

The recently renovated Lipton Hall (formerly Hayden Hall) is a thriving, social community that houses about 700 first-year students. Its proximity to Washington Square Park allows for easy access to classes, the library, the Kimmel Center, subways, and all that Greenwich Village has to offer. The Lipton Team consists of two live-in professional staff members (Residence Hall Director and Residence Hall Assistant Director), one Residence Hall Resource Manager, 15 Resident Assistants, and 1 Resource Center Assistant to help you connect to NYU, your classmates, and many of the great experiences this university and city have to offer. Lipton is also home to two Faculty Fellows-in-Residence who plan programs and events to meet and regularly engage with residents. Additionally, we have 3 Explorations communities within Lipton this year: the NYU Show, The French House, and The Spanish Floor. Each Explorations community has its own Faculty Affiliate who works closely with the floor. And, of course, we have our student government which is responsible for organizing events throughout the year specifically for Lipton Hall residents! They also advocate for hall improvements and act as liaisons to other residence hall governments. Traditionally, L.E.G.O. hosts a talent show, Halloween party, Relay for Life fundraisers, Broadway show outings, and so much more!

Lipton’s amenities include wi-fi throughout the building, a large common room with a community kitchen, a game room, and multiple group and quiet study lounges. The basement contains music rooms, a dance practice room, and a new commuter lounge. Lastly, the Lipton Dining Hall represents NYU Dining’s sustainable and healthy eating initiatives and is located on the main level of the building.
