Due to recent developments and guidance from CCNY, we are currently unable to offer in-person tours. However, we invite you to sign up for virtual tours or explore our 3D tours at ccnytowers.com.


Welcome to The Towers at CCNY, an apartment-style residence hall on campus.

The Towers offers comfort and convenience in an environment that encourages students to explore academic, social, and cultural opportunities. The Residence Life Staff is committed to providing a great place for students to live and learn through a highly engaged Resident Assistant staff, responsive maintenance team, and 24-hour security at our welcome desk.

Your housing cost depends on your apartment type and bedroom occupancy. Please click HERE for detailed information on the housing costs.  Posted costs include all utilities (including cable and internet), free laundry, and unlimited use of the fitness center, music rehearsal room, and all recreational amenities.

No, housing fees are paid directly to The Towers electronically, by mail, or in-person.
