Fostering a community of student musicians in the Andersen Hall residence hall, adjacent to MSM's main building.
MSM believes in cultivating a community of musicians, and living on campus is the first step toward becoming a part of our thriving musical environment. All freshmen, first-year transfer, and sophomore students are required to live on campus in the Andersen Residence Hall, adjacent to the School.
In addition to magnificent views of NYC and the Hudson River, the Hall features:
