New York Day Students

Students who live locally or who have friends/family to stay with in New York City are welcome to attend the program as Day Students. Day Students commute to campus each day and return home each evening after classes. New York day students do not join residential life activities.

Social Life

Day students should be aware that most of our attendees are residential students who live in our dormitories, and that our programming is structured for students who are in our care 24/7. Day students often befriend others in the programs, but they won’t be a part of evening trips, floor meetings, roommate experiences, or other quintessential parts of sleep-away camp that residential students enjoy.

At our Manhattan campus, day students are also not able to enter our dormitories due to Pace’s security guidelines. Manhattan students eat out in the nearby area, so they will often eat together with day student classmates who have evening class, but when dorm students first leave class there can be a break while dorm students change, shower, etc. Day students in Manhattan should be prepared to be particularly independent and comfortable with these logistical separations from their friends.
