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, and two Faculty Fellows-in-Residence with their families. Third North is home to two Explorations floors (living-learning communities) where students can apply based on the themes. We have a wide range of facilities in Third North, including the Third North Dining Hall, a small courtyard C-store, 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 Facebook and Instagram pages to learn more about Third North!

Each residence hall at NYU has a dedicated team of professional and student staff to ensure students' safety, a strong sense of community and smooth, efficient administrative operations. The professional staff is made up of a Residence Hall Director, Residence Hall Resource Manager and two Residence Hall Assistant Directors. 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.
