Application Process and Considerations
Who is eligible for housing?
Through Baruch College Housing Services, only full-time, enrolled students are eligible for housing. Non-Baruch students are not eligible for housing through our program.
How to Apply
All students interested in housing must fill out the Baruch Housing application form.
With limited space available, housing requests will be accommodated via a lottery system. Students must already be admitted to Baruch College, and then they must submit a $300 security deposit, along with the housing application, to be entered into the housing lottery. Deposits will be returned to students who do not receive a room placement.
If you receive and accept a Residence Hall placement, the deposit will be returned at the end of the housing term if there are no damages to your room. However, the deposit is nonrefundable if you decline a housing offer, withdraw your application at any time, miss the deadline to submit your housing documentation, or cancel your housing.
Is the Residence Hall co-ed?
Yes. However, rooms are only occupied by individuals of the same gender.
Are there single occupancy rooms available?
No, the Residence Hall only offers double and triple occupancy rooms.
Besides the 1760 Third Avenue location, are there other residence hall locations for Baruch College?
Currently 1760 Third Avenue is the only residence hall option for Baruch students.
Can I request to live with my friend?
You can indicate a roommate request on your application, but requests are not guaranteed. Roommates must be of the same gender.
Are there accommodations for persons with disabilities?
Accommodations for people with disabilities are made on a case-by-case basis.
Can I smoke in my room?
No. There is a no smoking policy. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises. However, there are designated smoking areas outside of the Residence Hall.
Is there a storage facility for my bike?
No, you must store your bike in your room.
Am I allowed to have any pets?
There is a no pet policy (this includes fish).
Would I be able to switch roommates if we do not get along?
Every effort is made to work with roommates to ensure they are able to peacefully coexist in the same living environment. Resident Assistants, Resident Director(s), and additional Residence Life staff are all available to help roommates who may have conflicts. Taking into account the transition period for all first-year students, roommate changes are discouraged in the first semester. Situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Office of Residence Life.
