St. George Clark Hall is one of two Brooklyn housing options, located in Brooklyn Heights. It’s a convenient 15 minute walk to Tandon’s campus, and only one stop away from Manhattan on the 2 and 3 line. Clark Hall offers a wide variety of options, including private studios and low cost triple rooms. All of the rooms in Clark are apartment style with a full refrigerator, a microwave and a TV. However, there are no individual kitchens. Instead, the building’s residents share a communal kitchen on the ground floor.
The building is newly renovated, so students will be able to enjoy amenities such as the 8,300 square foot student community center. The community center houses the community kitchen, a screening room, study areas, a pool table and a flat screen TV. Students who live in Clark Hall are also eligible for a complimentary membership to the Eastern Athletic Club, which is just next door.
St. George Clark Hall is a reasonable housing option for those wanting a little distance from the Tandon campus and an unconventional NYU residential experience. Just don’t plan on bringing too many guests, as Clark’s guest policy is slightly more strict than other residence halls. And don’t lose your key card, which is necessary for accessing the building and room.
