    "My dorm room's pretty cool. It's clean, though a bit on the small side. Big win is having my own room, so I get some solid privacy. The bathroom's just okay, nothing fancy. But the building itself? Looks nice and has a good vibe. Overall, not a bad place to crash for the school year."

    Founders Hall New York University

    Rated 4.3 / 5 stars by 12 NYU students

    "founders hall is really spacious and has great common areas for studying/lounging. i actually love the location as it's right near union square and there's a trader joes near by."

    "It's pretty convenient as it is near the Washington Square campus. I feel like the elevators breaking often could use some work as it sometimes takes over five minutes to get down from my 12th floor dorm to the first floor. It is also a little inconvenient to have to take two elevators from my dorm to the ground floor. However, the facilities are new and relatively clean. There are little to no bugs. One thing that may be uncomfortable is that you get no control over the room or suite temperature as it is regulated by the building itself. My roommate thought that the room was overly cold sometimes, while I thought it was fine. The windows are annoying as it has bird-safe patterns (I think), but I mean fair enough. Overall a great freshman year dorm, but if you are into socializing like me I think dorms near Third North would be the best option."

    "I love gramercy I have a corner room and it is amazing. The bathroom is super nice compared to other dorms. The kitchen has lots of storage space and our suite has a nice common area. My only thing about the suite is that there is no ceiling light but this is pretty common for New York. Only major downside of gram is that getting to school is a bit of a nightmare when the trains/buses are running late. "

    "I lived in Greenwich hall my sophomore year Spring semester. Greenwich is super lovely in the sense that it feels like a real old-school apartment and less like a dorm room. Very nice hardwood floors throughout, great bathroom, and massive kitchen (if you love cooking, Greenwich is great for that). I had a single in a 3-person suite where the other room was a double. Depending on the room/suite there's a lot of variety, but our room was definitely on the cozier side. Everyone thinks the walk is really long but it's really 10-15mins max, and there's a shuttle that goes solely to Greenwich that takes about 15mins to campus as well that's quite frequent or at convenient class times. And as a sophomore, I wasn't required to have a meal plan in Greenwich hall, so I would definitely recommend if you have the option to not use a meal plan since the dining halls are very far away. And, it's the only NYU dorm room with a free cleaning service (that you don't pay extra for in housing costs, it's just because of how the building was zoned) for your bathroom/common spaces. The only downsides were half the time the elevators didn't work, and that in the shower the water pressure was almost too high that it was sometimes uncomfortable. But other than that I would definitely dorm at Greenwich hall again! I think the best fit for Greenwich residents is loving to cook/bake most of your meals, wanting to feel like you're in a nice small NYC apartment, and enjoying a bit of a walk to campus."

    University Hall New York University

    Rated 4.4 / 5 stars by 5 NYU students

    "perfect location right next to the union square station, grocery stores, and a ton of food options. kitchen is a bit small, but living room is super nice for an nyu dorm."

    Rated 4.5 / 5 stars by 2 NYU students

    "Only real downside is no central AC, so any rooms without windows are warm/stuffy throughout the year, and the location. Kinda far from campus and other upperclassmen dorms that are usually by union but right next to Spring St 6 stop so class is only a 10-15 min commute. The laundry rooms are NICE tho since it runs on an app that tells you when your laundry is finished and they're on each floor."

    Lipton Hall New York University

    Rated 4.5 / 5 stars by 18 NYU students

    "Lipton Hall is a great freshman dorm conveniently located near Washington Square Park and a 5-10min walk to most of the buildings (CAS, Stern, Kimmel, GCASL, Bobst library etc.) Another upside of living in Lipton is having a dining hall at your disposal. Most freshman dorms are traditional style ie without having kitchens and having a dining hall in your building is a great + The rooms are spacious and if you're lucky you'll have a great view (I had the view of empire state, a living dream!!) I would say the cons of Lipton Hall are smaller bathrooms and closet space, when compared to other dorms like Brittany Hall. But once you adjust to it, it's really great living there. I know it took me some adjusting especially being an international student but I ended up calling Lipton my home :)"

    "I lived in a double but had 2 other suitemates! Othmer offers traditional style (so like, no kitchen) and apartment style and I lived in the traditional style suite. Othmer is a new building and they did some other renovations the year after I moved out. It's also literally across the street from NYU's Brooklyn campus, so most times you were only 2 minutes away from the dining hall and classes."

    "Had a double room with spacious bathroom! Very clean but the only problem was ventilation that we got fixed. Small kitchenette with low fridge / freezer storage capacity so have to grocery shop often. was on the 8th floor so the higher up the more the walls shake because it’s a skinny building."
