Housing and Residence Life

The Towers at CCNY (On-Campus Residence Hall)

The Towers at CCNY is the first residence hall to be built on the CCNY campus in the College’s 165-year history. The Towers, located on the South campus, offers a vibrant living and learning experience for all residents (which includes CCNY students, faculty, staff, and students from other CUNY campuses).

The Towers consists of 164 fully furnished, air-conditioned suites in four configurations that house one to four students each, as well as a limited number of studio and one-bedroom suites available for faculty housing. All suites have a kitchenette that includes a cooktop stove, a microwave, full-size refrigerator, a sink, cabinets, and countertop space. The Towers offers free wireless internet service throughout the entire building (including resident rooms and lounges), a multipurpose seminar room, a fitness center, a 24-hour security desk, a central laundry facility (free for residents), a community kitchen, and lounge area with a billiards table and large TV with comfortable seating.

The Residence Life Staff, which consists of resident assistants and professional staff, provides supervision of the building in accordance with CCNY/CUNY policies and procedures. Residence Life also strives to create a sense of community through educational and social programming and serves as a resource to all residents.

The Office of Off-Campus Housing

This resource allows for students to find housing accommodation around or close to the City College Campus. We provide assistance and counseling to students looking for a room or apartment and want to know more about the rental process in New York City. Off-Campus Housing operates a website that allows student and faculty to access all the resources that this department provides at their own convenience. We are currently introducing other aspects to the department and website to allow for students to find roommates and find a way to get help for housing. We want to provide as much help as possible for students looking to move around the college, which in turn will boost on-campus activity and increase students’ study time and decrease commute time.
