I lived in a loft in the east tower (11th/12th floors - 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, giant kitchen/living room/dining room and 2 floors). I dormed years ago when you couldn't choose roommates, so I got stuck living with 9 strangers (technically 8 strangers + 1 RA) and none of us got along, but the dorm ...

Controversially, I actually really like living at third north. I live in a low cost doubles, meaning it's one of the cheaper NYU dorms and I'd much rather pay this price for a small room with a kitchen than pay more for a bigger room and no kitchen. The location is one of the farther ones from campu...

I was expecting my dorm life when I applied for 3N because it is one of the few dorms with kitchens. But unless you can guarantee a peaceful life in the dorm and a healthy relationship with your roommates, please do hesitate before you apply for this place, according to my true tragedy. First, littl...

I lived at third north for the fall semester of my freshman year and it was definitely not worth the price at all.

I was in low-cost housing and got placed in a bunk bedroom with bare space to walk between the bed and the desk. Third North is known for its rats and roaches so be careful. As an...

Third North was a very comfortable dorm for my freshman year. I lived in a double room within a six person suite. I had a corner room with two windows and a great view. Security guards are so friendly, the building maintenance team is responsive, reliable and so friendly!

I liked living here a lot. The best part for sure was the basement common area because it was a great place to hang out with friends and also had private study rooms and a dance studio. I lived in a double with 1 roommate and 2 suitemates on the second floor and I felt like it was enough space for u...

Unless you have a good roommate and/or a loft apartment your life will be miserable here. Rooms are shabby, poor space, lacks natural light. Kind of depressing to be honest. At least there's a dining hall.

It was my favorite place freshman year! I always look back on the fond memories, great apartment vibe so it feels more open and social. you want to have people over and are excited to meet others, i met some of my best friends here! distance from campus is definitely the 2nd furthest, but it’s cute ...
