Living on campus should feel like your “home away from home.” There are many ways to connect with people, places, and parts of the city and The Office of Residential Life & Housing Services is here to help this happen. Joining a community takes transition and finding your “fit.” NYU’s diverse population, intellectual and personal growth opportunities, and the fact that we’re located in the heart of New York City offer many options for everyone to find a niche for themselves.

The best way to feel like you are a part of the community is to get involved. Join an organization, participate in a leadership workshop, or create your own organization and programming! Utilize your Resident Assistant (RA) and hall staff to help you find out what is there for you and what your interests are.
