If you’re an engineering student looking for a cozy place to stay, Othmer residence hall is for you. Othmer houses more than 400 NYU Tandon students in downtown Brooklyn. The dorm is conveniently located one block away from the Metro Tech and Borough Hall subway stations. In addition, shuttle service is available to transport students to main campus.

Housing is offered to first year, upperclassmen and graduate students. Residents have the option of selecting either a 2-bedroom traditional style suite or a 2-bedroom apartment. Both traditional and apartment style rooms are spacious and house four students with one shared bathroom. However, apartment style rooms also offer a kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and a full-sized refridgerator.

Othmer’s 18 stories houses 13 student lounges — each of which comes with a flatscreen TV — that are ideal spots for hanging out with friends or getting a study group together. The building also includes its own laundry facility. In addition, Othmer is located just across the street from the Jasper Kane Dining Center. But if you’re not in the mood for bland cafeteria food, take a quick walk through the courtyard to Chipotle, Pios Bagels or Shake Shack.

Leave the honking taxis and countless sirens back in Manhattan. Othmer’s prime location gives its residents the peace and quiet college students crave during hectic weeks and late night study sessions. But if you’re looking for some adventure, Othmer is just a quick subway ride away from the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Bridge.
