Lipton Hall is a first-year residence hall located on Washington Square West that houses up to 700 residents. It’s proximity to the center of campus allows its residents to easily access many campus buildings. Lipton’s rooms are traditional-style, where suitemates share a bathroom. The hall has many communal areas for students to relax and socialize including a community kitchen, game room, dance and music practice rooms, and study spaces.
Lipton is staffed by a number of professional and paraprofessional staff. In addition to two professional live-in staff members, there are 15 resident assistants and one resource center assistant that aid first-year students in their transition to college. They host a number of events and outings to get residents acquainted with each other and the city. Lipton is also home to two faculty fellows-in-residence who plan events regularly to engage with students.
The First Year Residential Experience (FYRE)
Like all first year halls, Lipton is part of the First Year Residential Experience (FYRE). FYRE is designed to help students transition to campus, build community, and acclimate to New York City. Being a part of FYRE is a great way to create connections with other first-year students. Every year, students compete in the FYRE Olympics, which brings all of the first year residence halls together for friendly competition. In addition, Lipton also has three exploration floors: The NYU Show, L’Etage Francais, and Vivir en Español.
Lipton Dining Hall
Lipton has a dining Hall located on the main floor of the building. It is certified Halal and supports sustainable and healthy eating initiatives. All first-year students who live in campus housing are required to have a meal plan, which provides students with meal swipes and dining dollars.
