About Coral

Coral is a great community of students located in an exciting area of NYC. We are within a few blocks of Union Square, Gramercy Park, and the East Village. Coral has approximately 400 students with a variety of smaller communities within. We offer low-cost living options as well as single and double spaces within suites. We also have one Exploration Floor, Geek NYC. We have a team of 13 resident assistants and a two Faculty Fellows in Residence who offer programming to get residents involved in the community and encourage them to explore the city. Our communal spaces include a large TV lounge, a quiet study room, a practice room, and a bike room. Our hall council, Coral All Student Assembly (CASA), also provides residents with an opportunity to make their mark on the Coral community.
