    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 emotional support. 

    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 $7,750 per resident, per academic year.  The cost of residing in Muss Hall is $5,500 per resident, per academic year.  A full room is required when submitting each housing option.

    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.

    If the mezuzah on your door is missing or falls off, contact the Office of University Housing and Residence Life at 646-592-4215.

    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 notice to the resident. If any substance, material or item is being kept or used on the premises in any manner prohibited by law, or by the rules/regulations of Yeshiva University, the University's authorized representatives may confiscate any such substance or item.
