NYU Othmer Residence Hall:


The Dorms

New York University's Othmer Residence hall features two bedroom suites which house four students, two per room. Each suite has a private bathroom, shower and sink. Amenities include rooms that are wired for Ethernet (need to bring your own cable), WiFi broadband access, and central air conditioning. The Dorm also has study rooms, student lounges with TVs, a computer room with internet access, 24-hour security, card-operated laundry facilities, and great views of Manhattan.

On Thursday afternoons, Celebrate Brooklyn hosts blues, funk and reggae concerts on the Metrotech Commons. Previous acts have included The Wailers of Bob Marley fame. There are nice restaurants on the Commons including Chipotle, Metro Cafe, Starbucks, Five Guys Burgers and an Au Bon Pain.

Meal Plan

SOCAPA's meal plan in Brooklyn includes an opening night dinner on the town and three meals a day Monday through Friday. SOCAPA students are responsible for their own meals on weekends. Most of SOCAPA's meals will be held in NYU's modern dining hall, a great place to meet and chat with new friends. Located at the north end of the first floor of Rogers Hall, the new dining facility seats approximately 300 individuals and has a nice view of the Metrotech Commons just outside. Due to the cafeteria’s shortened summer hours, most dinners are provided via vouchers from SOCAPA for meal packages at nearby restaurants on the Commons.
