Make the transition to living on campus easier by choosing to live with others who share your interests in a residential community. Being part of a residential community connects what you learn in the classroom with your life at home in the residence halls and enriches the friendships you form.
Named for the College's most iconic campus feature, the Arches is Manhattan’s living-learning community for freshmen. As Arches students, you live in Lee Hall and take one class together each semester. Outside of the classroom, you’ll be exposed to different types of culture and service work in New York City. It’s a great introduction to college life, and truly builds community from day one.
Common Interest Communities (CICs) are themed residences for students looking to enrich their lives outside of the classroom with peers who share the same interests or career goals. CICs help you find your niche on campus, and a great group of friends along with it.
