...while you're in college can change your entire experience. If you've thought about moving out and living in campus housing this fall, consider a place where Baruch students are calling their home; the Residence at 97th Street. It's convenient, comfortable and most importantly, it's your space.
The state-of-the-art Residences are equipped with a concierge, high tech gym, laundry facility that texts you when your clothes are dry, and a very chill lounge to study or relax with your friends. The building is just blocks away from Central Park, the Whitney Museum, and Serendipity.
Baruch College Residence Life offers a communal kitchen, lounge, and laundry machines that text you when your laundry is ready.
You can also take a break from studying and challenge a friend to a game of pool or foosball.
