Living on campus certainly makes life more convenient, but that’s only one of many reasons why more than two-thirds of our students choose to live on campus.
You get the basics; living on campus means food and shelter. It also means making connections more easily, a sense of security, and instant access to facilities and resources (and free laundry). When you move into a residential space at Purchase, you join a community of dancers, scientists, musicians, poets, painters, writers, filmmakers, actors, and environmentalists.
The Residences: Where You Can Live and When
The new residence hall, Wayback, houses 300 upper-class students in suite-style arrangements. Each suite includes two single rooms, one double room, a common space, and a bathroom.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
We believe that a Purchase education should be accessible to all. The Office of Community Engagement collaborates with the Office of Disability Resources to provide accessible campus housing for any student with a disability that may impact their living situation.
Some students choose to commute while still maintaining a close relationship with the campus community. We try to make that easy with accessible transportation, parking, and lockers/bike storage. To find out more, visit Commuter Resources.
