Palladium Hall is an upperclassmen dorm located near Union Square Park. Lower levels host athletic facilities, including a swimming pool, basketball court and weight room. Palladium’s food court is considered the best dining hall on campus — offering freshly made sushi, pizza and rotating international cuisine among other options. The over-the-top Sunday brunch always draws a line which slinks down the staircase.

“Palladium is definitely one of the better dorms,” Steinhardt junior Katie Westerlund said, as a former resident and current gym employee. “It’s kind of plain, but when you decorate it and pick a room higher up, the view is lovely.”

Most dorms are four-person, two bedroom suites with shared kitchen, bathroom and common areas — there are some one bedroom studios for Stern MBA students.

“My favorite place to hang out is the third floor,” LS sophomore Antonio Kieschnick said. “Sometimes my friends and I will go together to do laundry and stay to hang out in the game room.”

Westerlund warns of the nearby fire station.

“If you are a light sleeper, don’t face out toward 13th Street,” he said. “A firehouse is right there and fire truck sirens are a common lullaby at night time.
