We hope that you will join our academic and residential community to experience the unique advantages that NYU School of Law and Greenwich Village has to offer.

NYU School of Law student housing offers a variety of smoke free living arrangements within its two high-rise apartment-style residence halls and one low-rise apartment buildings.
