Our dedicated team of mashgichim supports students with the adjustment to campus life and college while helping them maximize their potential in learning and spiritual growth. Mashgichim are available to students night and day and are happy to discuss different morning programs, shiurim and chavrutot, and where to spend Shabbat and chagim.


Shabbat programming throughout the year is filled with inspiring speakers, meaningful davening and ruach, which make Shabbat one of the most exciting aspects of YU student life. Students enjoy lively meals, tisch, learning and singing, along with thought-provoking discussions. Both campuses provide a warm, exciting Shabbat experience that students look forward to, often taking part in special programs featuring dynamic guest speakers and interactive activities. Students attend study sessions and meet informally with fellow students and faculty members.
