Our Campus

The Juilliard complex at Lincoln Center is unlike any other in the world. Our neighbors include the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center Theater, New York City Ballet, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Film Society of Lincoln Center, School of American Ballet, and other internationally-known visiting companies and presenters. Dozens of Juilliard graduates perform with these companies, from which Juilliard also draws many of its faculty.

Juilliard's campus boasts more than 100 practice rooms, 35 private teaching studios, 6 performance venues, and 275 Steinway pianos.

Residence Hall

Our Meredith Willson Residence Hall occupies the 11th through 29th floors of Lincoln Center’s Rose Building. Looking out over the Hudson River in one direction and Lincoln Center Plaza in the other, each suite in the residence hall comprises three double rooms, two singles, two-and-a-half baths, and a living room. Most floors have two practice rooms with Steinway L pianos. There is a student lounge, complete with comfortable couches, a large-screen TV, and a billiard table; a computer room; laundry room; fully equipped fitness center; health clinic; and, on the first floor of the Rose Building, a full-service cafeteria.

At Juilliard, student safety is our utmost concern. The Lincoln Center campus is patrolled around the clock by security personnel who screen all visitors who wish to enter the residence hall. An electronic surveillance system ensures that no one may enter the hall without a pass. Students are issued IDs and keys to their individual suites and bedrooms.

"I love living in the residence hall. Not only is it extremely convenient, but it fosters a very strong sense of community. Moving to the big city, I was worried at first that I might feel lost; the dorm provides a real place of belonging and feeling of home. And there’s truly nothing more inspiring than waking up each morning to a stunning view of Lincoln Center!"

Performance Spaces

Almost every day of the school year, Juilliard’s exceptional performance spaces are filled with activity. The 278-seat Paul Recital Hall (with its recently renovated and expanded 3,173-pipe Holtkamp organ) and the slightly smaller Morse Recital Hall serve students presenting vocal or instrumental recitals, and host guest artists and lecturers. Musical ensembles and fully staged dance and opera productions play the 933-seat Peter Jay Sharp Theater. The Drama Division presents full-length productions in its own fully equipped, 200-seat Stephanie P. McClelland Drama Theater, as well the brand new Rosemary and Meredith Willson Theater, an intimate space seating up to 110 people and equipped with state-of-the-art production technologies.

We also have all of New York as our stage! Our orchestras, jazz, and chamber ensembles often appear in Lincoln Center’s own Avery Fisher and Alice Tully Halls, or a few blocks downtown at Carnegie Hall, as well as in other prominent auditoriums, churches, and public spaces around the city. Dance, drama, and jazz students have performed recently at New York City Center, the Museum of Modern Art, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and other major metropolitan area venues.
