University Residence Hall — Palladium Residence Hall’s slightly less cool younger cousin. While it may not come with NYU’s best dining hall or one of two NYU gyms within its walls, Palladium is just a hop, skip and jump away. Plus, you don’t have to worry about all the non-residents clogging the elevators, and you still have the wondrous duo of Burger Studio and Dunkin Donuts inside the building.

“Not only is it in a great location — on Union Square and next to Palladium — but U-Hall has a great community fueled by hall council, hanging out in the C-Lounge and great events from approachable, friendly staff like the RAs and hall directors,” Steinhardt junior Jenny Labovitz, who lived in University Hall as a freshman, said. 

While University Hall is technically a first-year residence hall, there is still a plentiful population of upperclassmen dispersed throughout the building. The units in the building are apartment-style suites each with two double rooms, a common area and a well-equipped kitchen.

“I was always greeted with a smile when walking in,” CAS junior Danielle Murray said.

University Hall’s location is definitely a big selling factor, as the infamous Joe’s pizza is essentially right underneath and Union Square’s wealth of dining and grocery shopping options is within arm’s reach.
