Housing and Dining

  • Dining


    At Parsons, you live and study as part of a diverse community in a dynamic city. University residence halls in Greenwich Village and Chelsea provide a secure and supportive environment that eases the transition from home to college and from culture to culture. All undergraduate residences are co-ed with gender-inclusive options, come fully furnished, and include air-conditioning and high-speed wireless Internet. Reflecting the university's commitment to safety, each residence features 24-hour security coverage and is staffed with a professional residence hall director and student resident assistants trained to handle emergencies. We strongly encourage students unfamiliar with New York City, particularly first-time freshmen, to take advantage of student housing.

    For students who wish to live off campus, the Office of Housing and Residential Education has compiled a list of off-campus resources, which includes support for finding an off-campus roommate, information on what to be aware of when renting in the city, and links for finding apartments.


    Parsons and The New School have several on-campus dining options, offering a range of hot and cold food and drinks. Most residential students are automatically enrolled in a meal plan.
