All the comforts of home…
…with a backyard as big as Central Park.
Not all of our students live on campus, but for those who decide to do so, we offer housing on New York’s coveted Upper West Side. Our spacious apartments offer all the amenities of home and then some.
Your new address
Our residences are located on West 65th and 85th streets. Although each residence building is an easy commute to campus, shuttles are provided after 6 pm Monday through Thursday. Additionally, many shuls, restaurants, and shopping outlets are within walking distance.
We've got it all here
Students live in apartments, not dorm rooms, which is why they are called "student residences". Each apartment comes with its own kitchen, dining area, living room, bathroom, and ample space for storage. Student residence rooms have furniture provided by LCW for your comfort and convenience, and each building comes equipped with washers and dryers for laundry.
A built-in social life
Sharing an apartment with other young women means that a friend is always across the hall or right next door. You’ll get to know each other while figuring out all the best spots in the city, volunteering, or having a late night spa-and-study session. Weekly classes are given during the evenings by Rabbi Goldwasser at the 85th Street residence, which often attract students from other college campuses.
The residences are always buzzing with events, such as gingerbread-house competitions, make-your-own-hamentashen, and Midnight Madness. Some recent residence life activities include: The Pizza-making Extravaganza; Scavenger Hunt in Columbus Circle; Thursday Night Challah Baking; Spa Night; Chanukah Chocolate Menorahs; Motzai Shabbos Mentalist; and Banana Splits and Bananagrams.
Support from residence staff
Resident Director Mrs. Malkie Katz serves as dorm mother year-round, along with her assistant, Nitzan. Both live on campus with their families and host many students for weekly Shabbos meals.
Resident advisors (RAs) are also on hand to offer guidance, answer questions, and help keep life in the student residence comfortable and exciting with activities like shiurim, Shabbatonim, and excursions in and around New York City.
From scheduling fun-filled activities to ensuring the safety of students, Malkie and the campus couple work with the RAs to enrich student residence life, build the campus community, and make the residences a home away from home.
