Coral Towers has a lot of amenities to offer, such as spacious rooms, study lounges, dance practice rooms and an on-site laundry facility. If you’re one of the luckier students, you’ll also get a stunning view of Union Square. Coral is directly above a Duane Reade, which sometimes causes confusion over the location of the entrance, although after the first few visits, it is easy to find.

While there are a variety of rooming options in Coral, the majority of the rooms are quad suites with a common area, kitchen and bathroom. Meanwhile, the basement provides study space and a lounge, as well as a dance room.

Coral is a bit of a walk from campus, but the tradeoff means you’re in a prime location for just about everything else. Located on East 14th Street between Union Square and Second Ave, things won’t be too awfully noisy, but never fear — you’re incredibly close to a very lively environment, including an abundant selection of restaurants and cafes. Because when all else fails, Joe’s Pizza is right across the street for all those late nights.
