About the Meredith Willson Residence Hall


Students enter the residence floors through a securely guarded entry leading to a private bank of elevators used exclusively for the residence hall. The lobby floor of the residence hall contains a lounge area (with a large-screen television and game tables), a community kitchen, vending machines, and a laundry room. Health & Counseling Services and a well-equipped fitness center are located on the 22nd floor, and a computer/study lounge is located on the 19th floor. Each of the 11 residence floors has four residential suites and two soundproof practice rooms, most of which contain Steinway grand pianos. The 17th floor does not have practice rooms.

Each suite has five bedrooms (three doubles and two singles), two and a half bathrooms, and a common living room with a panoramic view of Lincoln Center and Manhattan to the east or the Hudson River and the horizon to the west. The double rooms are equipped with two bunk beds, two desks with drawers, two chests of drawers, and a small closet for each resident. The single room is equipped with the same type of furniture. A cable TV outlet and campus phone are provided in each suite and internet service is provided in each student room (two internet ports in double rooms), all included in the cost of housing. The residence hall also offers several specified living communities: all female, all male, substance-free, and quiet floors.

Meal Plan

A meal plan is required for all students who live in the residence hall. Resident students may choose one of two meal plan options. A detailed brochure describing the meal plan is available on the right sidebar of this page. Students have the opportunity to select the 170-Block option during the first week of school. All students, resident or non-resident, have access to the Juilliard/SAB Cafe, which is conveniently located on the plaza level of the Rose Building.
