An integral part of the Office of Student Affairs, the Residence Life Office is located on the 11th floor of the residence hall. Residence Life is responsible for staffing, programming, building maintenance, and housekeeping services, and addressing disciplinary matters for students living in the residence hall. The staff strives to maintain a positive community atmosphere and is available to assist each student with their living and learning experiences at Juilliard.
The Residence Life Office serves as the primary communications and support center for hall residents. The Residence Life staff consists of two full-time live-in professional residence hall directors, three assistant residence coordinators (A.R.C.’s), 11 resident assistants (R.A.’s), and two community assistants (C.A.’s), who are all trained and equipped to address residents’ needs. Professional and student staffs are on call every night to assist residents and handle emergencies. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-midnight and weekends from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. and 9 p.m.-midnight. Each resident student receives a residence hall handbook that provides detailed information about policies, procedures, and amenities in the residence hall.
The Residence Life Office hosts more than 140 programs each year, allowing students the opportunity to break free from their rigorous daily routine. Some programs are entirely social in nature, while others have an educational spin designed to give students the tools to succeed both in and out of the artistic realm. Some of the programs that have taken place in the residence hall include Halloween Haunted House, Midnight Breakfast, and Market Your Art. There is always something to do in the residence hall!
Horizons seminars provide students with useful and interesting information that they may not receive through their regular school curriculum. Each session is designed to expand the mind and develop important skills that performing artists can use throughout their careers and lives. Horizons seminars cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to, leadership, diversity, health, personal finance, communication skills, career exploration, drug/alcohol education, and general life skills. Requests and recommendations for topics and guest speakers are always welcome!
Students hoping to live in the residence hall beyond their first year should attend six Horizons seminars over the course of the fall and spring semesters in order to participate in the housing lottery in May. With over 60 Horizons offered each year, there are plenty of opportunities! For more information, contact the Residence Life Office at [email protected].
