More than 85 percent of Sarah Lawrence students live on campus—and our residence halls are just as varied as our students. From traditional-style dorms to cooperative houses, from rooms tucked away in stately mansions to a sustainable lifestyle house, every space encourages community gatherings and provides spaces for both living and learning.
Join a club—or start your own. Go to a concert—or perform yourself. Theatre shows, poetry slams, science fairs, open mic nights, late-night dances, early-morning workouts, community service, internships, volunteer opportunities, competitive sports...the campus is alive with student activities.
The Office of Diversity and Campus Engagement works with its programming and funding arm—the Diversity and Activism Programming Subcommittee of Student Life (DAPS)—to provide student-centered programs that focus on all aspects of diversity. The office sponsors a weekly dialogue group called Real Talk @ SLC, provides mediation support, and advises student managers of identity groups and spaces on campus.
Enjoy the best of both worlds—the intimacy of a traditional liberal arts college campus with the energy and resources of New York City 30 minutes away. Explore internship opportunities, museums, performances, and shows in the Big Apple and the surrounding community.
Ready to explore, define, and realize your career goals? No matter where you are on your career journey, Sarah Lawrence provides a broad range of programs and supports to empower you to take control of your professional development, job search, and career satisfaction.
Students can embrace Sarah Lawrence College’s rich history of social responsibility through participation in service learning classes and student-led community engagement initiatives, supported by the Anita L. Stafford Community Partnerships and Service Learning Program.
