RESIDENCE LIFE AND HOUSING
EXPERIENCE LIVING ON CAMPUS IN VAUGHN'S RESIDENCE HALL
As you’re making your college decisions, you’re also probably deciding where you’re going to live. Choosing to live in a residence hall can help ease the transition to life on your own and help you make new connections to your peers. You can also take advantage of all that New York City has to offer.
Consider becoming part of the Vaughn College residential community. Unlike off-campus living, the residence hall provides you with a unique living environment where all of your neighbors are students just like you. It’s a place to form bonds with people with whom you will be sharing memorable experiences. More importantly, it is a place to foster relationships with the people you’ll consider your best friends for the rest of your life.
ABOUT RESIDENCE LIFE AND HOUSING
Though Vaughn College is part of one of the largest and busiest cities in the world, we take pride in our small community. We pride ourselves on being a safe and secure campus and expect that all resident students will contribute to this effort by:
- Carrying their Vaughn College identification cards―the residence hall is accessible by card access enabled through each ID card
- Being considerate to fellow resident students
- Keeping noise levels within a reasonable limit to allow them to focus on their studies
- Understanding that the building promotes substance-free living
RESIDENCE HALL AMENITIES
Our all-suite style residence hall ensures that each resident has access to a semi-private full bathroom within their suite. Additionally, the 185-bed three-level building is equipped with a full kitchen and television lounge on the lobby level, a multipurpose room on the second floor, a fitness center on the third floor and two laundry rooms on the second and third floors.
Participation in a meal plan is mandatory for all students living in the residence hall. All residential freshmen must choose either the $1,650 or $1,200 meal plan. For additional information see the Tuition and Fees page.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No. The residence hall’s capacity is approximately 185 residential students. Therefore, housing is available on first-come, first-served basis, provided that the student has been admitted to Vaughn College, has submitted a complete student housing application and has paid the $250 housing deposit. The student will also need to provide a photocopy of a health insurance card on move-in day, as health insurance is required for all resident students.
Each student is required to submit a $250 housing deposit when completing a housing application. The $250 fee will be kept on file to be used towards any excess damages left in your room upon your move-out. If you cancel housing in writing prior to July 1, for the fall semester, or January 1, for the spring semester, the $250 housing deposit will be refunded. After these dates, the deposit is not refunded for housing cancellations.
Please see the Residence Hall Rates and Fees section of the Vaughn College Semester Tuition and Fees page.
Students who need to change the information provided on their online housing application can resubmit the same application form they filled out, as posted on the main page of our site. If you have any questions, contact .
In the fall, the residence hall generally opens during the weekend prior to the beginning of classes. However, there are specific move-in dates for new residents versus returning residents, as well as for international students. In the spring and summer semesters, move-in is generally 24 hours before the start of classes. Each academic year’s dates and move-in procedures may vary, so please refer to your Vaughn email for notices from the Office of Residence Life and Housing regarding your move-in.
