What's new in our residence halls:
Rubin Hall is the home for all new students on the Wilf Campus.
We are taking important steps to ensure the success of our new
students by having a warm, supportive, intellectually engaging,
friendly on-campus housing experience. Common areas in Rubin Hall will
serve as a prime venue for student academic services, integrating
tutoring, and many other helpful campus resources.
The added value of this first-year group living
arrangement focuses predominantly on academic, developmental and
Rubin Hall will host speakers, lectures, social gatherings, movie
screenings, and academically focused programs to enhance a well-rounded,
intellectually inspiring, integrated student living and learning
experience for all students.
New students have the option of living with one or two roommates
(total of two or three per room). The cost of a double occupancy room
is $7,500 per resident, per academic year. The cost of a triple
occupancy room is $6,000 per resident, per academic year.
Upperclassmen have the option of residing in Morgenstern Hall or Muss
Hall. The cost of residing in Morgenstern Hall is $7,850 per resident,
per academic year. The cost of residing in Muss Hall is $6,000 per
resident, per academic year. A full room is required when submitting
each housing option. We also have the new option of a guaranteed single in a double room. By choosing this selection you can have a regular two person room, occupied by yourself ($10,000). Please note, no furniture will be removed for this option. This option is only available in Rubin and Morgenstern. Your current housing assignment does not guarantee that you will have the same or similar placement next year.
What is in each room?
YU provides each student with the following furniture: bed, desk, dresser, chair, bookshelf and closet space. Each room is equipped with a sink, medicine chest and wastebasket. Furniture may not be taken from another room, and unwanted furniture may not be removed from the occupant's room.

Students are responsible for bringing their own linen, pillows and blankets.
The Housekeeping Department maintains all public areas of the dormitories. Students are responsible for cleaning their rooms, including regularly removing and properly discarding refuse in the large trash bin in each floor bathroom and maintaining satisfactory sanitation and safety standards.
The resident advisers are provided with cleaning equipment for the use of floor residents. You may wish to bring or purchase your own broom and cleaning supplies, as well.
Although every effort will be made to respect privacy in student rooms,
the University reserves the right to enter for the maintenance of
health, safety, security and standards of conduct. Entry may be made at
any time, whether or not the resident is present, and without prior
