Riverside Terrace Residence Hall


Don’t expect to find a typical residence hall at 350 W. 88th St. The elegant limestone facade of the Riverside Terrace Residence Hall exemplifies the charm that makes the Upper West Side among the most desirable, and safest, neighborhoods in the city. Inside are single, double, and triple rooms, all decoratively furnished and well equipped for the 21st century.

The building has a kitchen on every floor, a coin-operated laundry room, vending machines, and a reception desk staffed 24 hours day. Supervised by a professionally trained hall director, and resident assistants, the Riverside is a quick bus or subway ride from the New York City campus.
