Student Life Welcomes YOU!

The Office of Student Life is dedicated to making each Yeshiva University student's undergraduate experience as positive as possible.

We strive to meet your needs from before your arrival on campus until graduation day and beyond. Whether it is helping you manage your educational, social, or general welfare, or planning fun-filled and exciting events, we offer many different services to help you meet your needs.

Our mission is to serve as a guide and a resource to each and every member of the student body, and assist you in maximizing your potential as part of the YU community.

See the main University Events Calendar for details on exciting and enriching happenings. Remember, all that's missing from these great events is YOU!

Below are resources for frequently asked questions (Where are computer labs? What is the shuttle schedule?) and an introduction to many vital areas of the University, for both the Beren and Wilf campuses, all in one place. We’ve included insider information such as important dates, Eruv maps and transportation information. If you can’t find it here, get in touch with us at answers@yu.edu
