Thank you for everyone who was able to join the AIANY Architecture for Education Committee for a roundtable discussion on the evolution of student housing in New York City.

The program presented three project examples: a recently completed new building at Pratt Institute, a series of phased renovations at New York University, and a project currently in design at Columbia University. The conversation focused on each institution’s specific student profile and how the programming and planning of the project responded to student needs within the context/constraints of New York City living.
