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 residence offers all the amenities of home and then some.
Your new address
Our residence is located on West 59th Street, and West End Avenue, around the corner from the college. We are within walking distance of Riverside Park, and Columbus Circle, a gateway to the NYC transit system, great shopping, and a quick ride to many restaurants.
We've got it all here
Students live in suites. Each suite contains a fully equipped kitchen (including a dairy and meat oven), dining area, and bathrooms. Student residence rooms have furniture provided by LCW for our students’ comfort and convenience, and students have access to our private, card-operated, laundry facilities. Our new state of the art dorm has student lounges, quiet study rooms and activity rooms located throughout. There is a guard present 24/7 for the safety and comfort of our students.
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.
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; Paint and Sip Night; Thursday Night Challah Baking; Spa Night; Chanukah Chocolate Menorahs; Guitar Jam Session; Poke Bowl night; make your own edible dough; and Banana Splits and Bananagrams.
Support from residence staff
Resident Director Mrs. Malkie Katz lives on campus with her husband Motty, 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 works with the RAs to enrich student residence life, build the campus community, and make the residence a home away from home.
