"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 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."

"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."

"Great rooms with a lot of space, AC, kitchen, and bathrooms. Easy access to learning center and commons cafe, which is open until 11pm most days. Close to union square and subway. Bit of a distance from main campus. "

"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."

"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."

"If you’re applying for NYU Housing your number one choice is definitely 181 Mercer also called Paulson Center. This building just opened up January 2023 and everything here is brand new. The residence hall itself is from floors 8 to 16 and so all the rooms have amazing views of the city. The building also has its own Cafe which trust me, has better coffee than Starbucks and a Food Outlet with multiple different food choices. The study spaces in this building are endless and very very spacious. There is also a sports center, gym and theatre that’s scheduled to open pretty soon so that’s something to look forward to. Finally being located on Mercer Street also means your Central to both Soho and Greenwich Village so lot of restaurants bars and clubs around that are worth visiting. So yeah, just overall if you’re looking for Housing at NYU, you should be praying you get into 181 Mercer."
