living on campus certainly makes life more convenient, but that’s only one of many reasons why more than two-thirds of our students choose to live on campus.
you get the basics; living on campus means food and shelter. it also means making connections more easily, a sense of security, and instant access to facilities and resources (and free laundry). when you move into a residential space at purchase, you join a community of dancers, scientists, musicians, poets, painters, writers, filmmakers, actors, and environmentalists.
the residences: where you can live and when
the new residence hall, wayback, houses 300 upper-class students in suite-style arrangements. each suite includes two single rooms, one double room, a common space, and a bathroom.
accommodations for students with disabilities
we believe that a purchase education should be accessible to all. the office of community engagement collaborates with the office of disability resources to provide accessible campus housing for any student with a disability that may impact their living situation.
some students choose to commute while still maintaining a close relationship with the campus community. we try to make that easy with accessible transportation, parking, and lockers/bike storage. to find out more, visit commuter resources.
