This may be the hip New York City neighborhood you’ve been looking for… You don’t have to be an artist or musician… You just have to love what they do!
Visit MOMA and the MET. See a Broadway show. Find the offbeat musical venues and tucked-away galleries. Faculty and staff can show you how to get there. Your neighbors will be ready to go with you.

What better way to meet the people in the Honors Program, than to live down the hall from them? In a place where floor-mates and classmates are often one in the same, students in this community support each other personally and academically.
Honors students are often described as driven, independent thinkers, and committed to achieving their goals. As a result, residents get involved in creating events and programs that meet their needs—which is often not another lecture. For example, last semester, residents left the stress of campus behind and had a picnic in Clove Lakes Park, just down the hill from campus.

Launched in the Fall 2017, the Civic Engagement Floor provides students interested in leadership, civic engagement and community service in a community of upcoming leaders at Wagner, and beyond! Students in this community will participate in leadership activities and be provided opportunities to think about civic engagement in New York City.

The Gender Inclusive Community was proposed and created by Wagner College students! This community supports and advocates for the cultural experiences of LGBTQAI residents and allies. The floor will also serve as gender-free housing. This community allows roommate/suitemate pairings of any gender, gender expression, or sex. Residents who do not indicate similar roommate requests will be assigned a roommate who is also interested in living in the Gender Inclusive Community. People will only be assigned to live in this community by completing the designated application and being accepted.
Towers Hall is home to gender inclusive housing.
The Honors Community is for any student who hopes their residential experience especially supports their academic and intellectual goals. This floor is ideal for those interested in exploring new ideas about themselves and the world. The Honors Community in Guild brings the Honors Program home. It encourages students to collaborate with each other and deepen their friendships. Faculty and staff support students’ personal scholarship and leadership development through meetings, events, and programs. From museum days to flea markets, the Honors Community in Guild is known for traveling off-campus—and having fun while doing it!
