Housing and Dining
Juilliard students have two options for living arrangements. First time college students (individuals who have not attended college prior to entering Juilliard) are required to live on campus in the Meredith Willson Residence Hall. After their first year, students have the option of returning to the residence hall through Housing Selection, or moving off campus to one of New York City's vibrant neighborhoods. New transfer and graduate students may opt to live in the residence hall (space permitting) or live off campus.
Dining in Juilliard – There is only one hall to dine in. It is located on the lobby floor of the dorm building and overall, the food is good. The grill, salad bar, and hoagie are always maintained fresh and there is alot of choices in snacks and drinks. Overall, it is a good dining experience.
Juilliard’s scholarship awarding policy is “need-based, merit-informed.” Assisting students with financial need is our top priority, but audition results are also strongly considered. While we are unable to meet the full need of all who apply, we make every effort to assist as many students as possible to attend the School.
It is a fundamental principle of awarding aid that every student and his or her family should contribute to their education to the extent of their ability. However, we also recognize that the information provided on the FAFSA does not always provide a realistic assessment of the student’s ability to pay for college. We encourage families to provide us with whatever supplemental information they feel is important to give us a clearer picture of their financial circumstances and enable us to create an appropriate award package.
