Additionally, you can stay in the Residence Hall as long as you are a registered full-time undergraduate student at Baruch College. Residential housing license agreements are only executed for one academic year at a time, generally from the last week in August through the third week in May. Current residents have the option to renew on an annual basis in the spring semester although they must move out 24 hours after their last final.
While there is no meal plan or cafeteria in the Residence Hall, there is a large shared kitchen on the first floor for residents. In addition, each room has a mid-sized refrigerator and microwave. Residents need to provide their own cooking supplies, food, and utensils.
The 6 train stops around the corner at 96th Street and Lexington Avenue. It takes about 25 minutes to get to Baruch’s campus. The Q train on the corner of 96th Street and 2nd Avenue is also nearby. There is no resident stipend for MetroCards.
The 1760 Third Avenue building houses over 1,100 students from Baruch and other colleges. Baruch College has approximately 465 students in residence, eight Resident Assistants, and one full-time professional staff member living on-site.
Each room, whether you opt for a single, double or triple occupancy, has a bathroom with a shower, sink, and toilet.
There is a laundry room in the Residence Hall. You will need to supply your own laundry detergent, and laundry basket or bag. Washers and dryers operate on a pre-paid keycard system. An alert system will let you know when your laundry is done.
Yes, those services are all included in the housing rate at no extra cost. There is also wireless internet connection.
Large pieces of furniture are provided and may not be substituted for your own. However, smaller items may be permitted as long as they do not interfere with your roommate(s). No housing-issued furniture can be removed from the room.
The license agreement is for one full academic year (exceptions may be made for exchange students on a case-by-case basis). Students who stay for the full academic year will be able to stay in the Residence Hall over the winter break at no extra charge. At the end of the academic year agreement, students are required to move within 24 hours of their last final.
