Residence Hall

Created with Sketch.

Description of the Residence Hall

The residence hall offers a distinctive living environment designed to meet the basic living needs of residents and provide opportunities for them to become a part of the MSM community. All residents are provided with a bed, mattress, dresser, desk, chair, and closet space. The residence hall is a coed, twenty-story building which accommodates approximately 500 Manhattan School of Music resident students on designated floors.

Other groups are also using the building. For example, the American Ballet Theater is sharing space with MSM students on the 5th floor, and the NYIT program is on the 10th floor.

There are rooms for single and double occupancy. Rooms open onto an adjoining hallway. Each floor has eight toilets and showers for approximately 45 residents. The Manhattan School of Music resident students share 5 lounges and a limited kitchen facility area on the sixth floor. An exercise room, vending machines, and laundry room are also available in the residence hall for Manhattan School of Music resident students. The laundry room and exercise room will be shared with students from the ABT and NYIT programs.
