Located in Manhattan’s historic Chelsea/Flatiron district, The New York Conservatory campus occupies three brightly-colored floors of acting studios, classrooms, movement studios, dance studios, camera studios, multi-purpose studios, a student lounge and library. Wi-fi access is available throughout.
The school hosts the offices of several leading casting directors, which presents a unique opportunity to meet casting directors and gain some behind-the-scenes perspective.
The New York Conservatory places students in one of two residence options: Our primary student residence is located in the East Village. We also share a student residence with several other colleges and universities, located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Both residences are highly secure, with swipe-card entry and front desks staffed 24/7, along with live-in RAs, on-site laundry and gyms.
Please note: Our residences have very few single rooms. We encourage freshmen to live with other students to promote community building and help with the psychological adjustment of living away from home for the first time.
