Student Life

A Dynamic Campus Environment

With over 800 colleagues from some 40 countries, our students enjoy a diverse campus with a sense of community amidst the vibrant culture of New York City. Through a wide variety of social, service, and educational activities, you'll find numerous opportunities on campus to get involved and form new friendships. Events include such activities as a welcome social, an orientation cruise around the island, a winter formal, a family and friends weekend, pizza parties, a health and wellness fair, international student events, and Alexander technique classes. Student organizations also offer another avenue to meet people with common interests and build leadership skills. And, if you're fitness-minded, the Columbia University gym is nearby and available for a special student fee.

Our residence hall, directly adjacent to the main building, is also an important resource for providing students with a vibrant community in which to study and live. Both undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world live on campus and participate in social activities, study groups, recreation, clubs, and student organizations.

At Manhattan School of Music, you'll become part of a lively atmosphere that will enable you to grow and thrive both musically and personally.
