About Yeshiva University

Yeshiva University has grown from a small yeshiva offering some secular education to Jews on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1886 to a prestigious, multifaceted institution that integrates the knowledge of Western civilization and the rich treasures of Jewish culture.

Yeshiva University today supports three undergraduate schools (including honors programs and Torah studies programs), seven graduate and professional schools, renowned affiliates such as the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, a diverse multitude of scholarly centers and institutes, and several libraries, a museum and a university press, located on campuses both in the United States and Israel.

One of the marvelous aspects of a Yeshiva University education is the way the University’s multiple disciplines intersect. Students pursuing semicha at the Seminary can also take advanced courses in counseling and therapy from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology or Wurzweiler School of Social Work. Students at Sy Syms School of Business are tutored by renowned Roshei Yeshivas on Jewish law and contracts, while science researchers at Stern College for Women convene conferences that bring together leading lights of science, bioethics and religion. Computer science majors sit in on lectures by the chief information officers of huge institutions as they struggle together to master the ethical dilemmas posed by big data and algorithms.


On-Campus Housing

Dormitory space is primarily reserved for undergraduate students. College dormitory friendly products can be purchased at many retail stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Walmart and Ikea. When purchasing bedding, the sheet size is "twin extra long." Electric power is standardized in all states across the USA. It is set at 110 Volts and 60 cycles. If necessary, decide if it makes sense for you bring a converter or purchase compatible appliances upon arrival. It may be more convenient and less expensive to purchase items such as coffee makers and hairdryers at a U.S. discount store. NOTE: Undergraduate students are required to live on-campus their first year (2 semesters.) 

Off-Campus Housing

YU does not have an off-campus housing office, however, some schools, such as Cardozo Law, have accommodations in non-YU buildings, that you can to reserve on your own. Graduate students should check directly with their admission office website to see what may be avaialble. if your school does not have resources on their website, contact the admission office directly or check here:
