Housing & Residential Life

Created with Sketch.

The G. Chris and Sung Eun Andersen Residence Hall, our 20-story residential tower attached to the main MSM building, is home to a vibrant community of student musicians.

In this section you’ll find all the information you need about campus housing, off campus housing, meal plans, residential life, and the forms you’ll need while living on campus.

Campus housing is offered in the recently completed G. Chris and SungEun Andersen Residence Hall, adjacent to the School. While most of the rooms are doubles, each student is provided with a private phone line and an Ethernet jack.

In addition to offering some of the best views of the city, the hall includes:

  • 13 floors with housing for approximately 600 students
  • 79 practice rooms
  • 24-hour security
  • Trained residence life staff
  • Laundry facilities
  • A well-equipped fitness room
  • 5 Student lounges
  • A dining facility is located in the School’s main building adjacent to the residence.

Students from all over the world live on campus and participate in social activities, study groups, recreation, clubs, and student organizations. In addition to providing on-campus convenience, making new friends is another reason students choose to live on campus. Beyond building stronger ties, you’ll have New York City’s exciting culture, restaurants, markets, parks, and entertainment just around the corner. Within easy reach, you’ll also find many of the world’s artistic treasures – Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
