Housing for NYU Law Students

Students chat on the Vanderbilt Hall terrace, with D'Agostino Hall, one of the primary NYU Law residence halls, located across the street, in the background.

While at NYU Law, students can stay either in one of the dedicated law school residence halls—each within a few blocks of the classroom buildings and the Law Library—or off-campus, taking advantage of New York City’s diverse neighborhoods and boroughs.

If you choose to live on-campus, you’ll enjoy the convenience of living in modern high-rise apartment buildings with 24-hour doormen. Here, you’ll immerse yourself in vibrant, historic Greenwich Village as you explore Washington Square Park, cafés that inspired literary greats, comedy clubs, theaters, and restaurants.

We offer a variety of living arrangements. Most student residents live in private bedrooms that are shared between two- or three-bedroom apartments in our two high-rise apartment-style residence halls. Family and partner housing accommodations (in the form of studios and one-bedroom apartments) are also available. Explore our residence halls to learn about our facilities, including apartment layouts and furnishings.

If you prefer to live off-campus, you’ll benefit from University resources for finding housing that meets your needs. The Law School is located near several subway and bus lines, including the busy West Fourth Street-Washington Square Station, making it convenient to students commuting from around the city.
