Finding a place to live, and one of comfort and security, can be a daunting task and big deal for students making their first trek away from home to college. At SVA, we've got housing options: the Gramercy Women's residence, the 23rd Street Residence and the Ludlow and 24th Street Residence.
In this spring's SVA Style magazine, we took a look at the Ludlow and 24th Street Residence via two different students at the opposite ends of their college education.
Senior Andrew McGuire (BFA Film, fourth-year student) is concentrating on screenwriting. He’s filled his single room at the Ludlow Residence with still lives assembled from various objects he finds amusing or entertaining. “I’ve always done this, since I was a kid,” he says. “I have boxes at home organized from first grade through senior year of high school filled with knickknacks. Because they all contain memories, I’m afraid to throw anything out!”
24th Street Residence
Ryan Cosbert (BFA Fine Arts, first-year student) is originally from Brooklyn, but spent most of her childhood in Virginia Beach. She’s happy to be back in New York City, now that she’s attending SVA and living at the 24th Street Residence. “It’s never boring here,” she says. “There are always events going on, hosted by the RAs (resident assistants), and there’s common space for hanging out.”
