The Benjamin, Cardozo's New Residence Hall

Cardozo Law opened its newly renovated residence hall, the Benjamin, in the fall of 2016. The Benjamin occupies a seven story building on Lexington Avenue and 29th Street in Manhattan. Students may apply for three kinds of furnished rooms, all of which have air conditioning, WiFi, smart TVs, and access to a laundry room, exercise room, a large ground floor common area with comfortable lounge seating, a top-floor solarium study room, and a rooftop patio with views of the city. In addition, the newly renovated Alabama residence, on West 11th Street just off Fifth Avenue, will be available to Cardozo students starting in the fall of 2017. The Alabama was recently purchased from the university and will provide housing at market rates on a priority basis for Cardozo students.

Finding Off-Campus Accommodations

Many students find housing in Greenwich Village, Tribeca, SoHo, and other neighborhoods near the Cardozo campus. The school is conveniently accessible to many bus and subway lines, and is a short subway or bus ride to Penn Station and Grand Central Station. Students can commute easily from other New York neighborhoods where rents are relatively inexpensive.
Additionally, there are organizations in New York City that specialize in providing temporary or long-term housing to students and interns.  Some of these resources are listed below.
