Residence Halls

Union Theological Seminary will operate one residence hall during the 2019 – 2020 school year; McGiffert Hall. In addition, Union will be partnering with the International Househttps://www.msmnyc.edu/campus/student-affairs/housing-residential-life/ and Manhattan Shcool of Music to provide housing options to our students. All three of these housing options are located within 1-2 blocks walk of the seminary.

Union’s Residence Halls offer a safe and communal living environment from which to venture out into New York City.
