Residence Life


The Office of Residence Life supports the educational mission of John Jay College by creating a safe, supportive, inclusive and engaged living-learning community that fosters the academic, social, cultural, and personal growth of our residents. The primary goal of John Jay’s Residence at the New Yorker is to provide an academic learning community that fosters the development of well-rounded, productive and involved members of the community. Our office is committed to offering purposeful social and educational programming intended to challenge and support residents both personally and academically; and is committed to collaborating with other departments and faculty to develop student-centered services and programs for the residents. John Jay’s Residence at the New Yorker will be a place where students can have fun, make lasting friendships, and feel at home. The Residence Life Staff focus on developing communities where each student feels connected to their peers and has a strong connection to the John Jay community.
