About the Towers


THE TOWERS AT CCNY is the first residence hall to be built on the CCNY campus in its 165-year history.  The Towers, located on the South Campus, opened in August 2006. Currently, The Towers provides accommodations for 589 student residents.

The Towers consists of 164 fully-furnished, air-conditioned suites in four configurations:

  • one-bedroom, one-bathroom suite (2 residents per bedroom)
  • two-bedroom, one-bathroom suite (2 residents per bedroom)
  • three-bedroom, two-bathroom suites (1 resident per bedroom)
  • four-bedroom, two-bathroom suites (1 resident per bedroom)

The Towers also has a limited number of studio and one-bedroom suites available for faculty housing.  All suites have a kitchenette that includes a cooktop stove, a microwave, a full-size refrigerator, a sink, cabinets, and countertop space.  The Towers offers free wireless internet service throughout the entire building (including resident rooms and lounges), a multi-purpose seminar room, a fitness center, a central laundry facility, a community kitchen and lounge area with a billiards table and large TV with comfortable seating. All residents are issued an access card for entry at the 24-Hour Security Desk. There  are closed-circuit security cameras located throughout the building.  CCNY operates a free shuttle/escort service to provide residents with easy access to the North Campus and local subway stations.  The Residence Life Staff, which consists of Resident Assistants and professional staff, provides supervision of the building in accordance with CUNY/CCNY policies and procedures.  Residence Life also strives to create a sense of community through educational and social programming and serves as a resource to all residents.

The cost for living in The Towers varies by suite type and length of contract; however, all utilities (i.e., electric, heat, A/C, local phone service, internet service, laundry, and basic cable TV service) are included.
