|HOUSING UPDATE FROM DEAN BENNETT
I’m excited to share news of upcoming transitions in King’s College
The College is expecting it’s largest class of incoming students this
fall. And, as a result of changes in City housing regulations, we have to
reduce the number of occupants in The Herald Towers and The Vogue to three
students per apartment. These factors mean we’re growing and that we need to
find additional housing.
Over the past few months we’ve scrutinized numerous buildings in various
locations, most of which were inferior to our standards, too expensive, or
too far from classrooms. We have, however, found a great building that will
serve students well – a brand new building owned by the School of Visual
Arts and located 20 minutes away door-to-door on the corner of Ludlow and
Delancey Streets. Most of the rooms are singles with a handful of doubles;
the building includes amenities that make it attractive:
- Wireless access throughout entire building
- Cable TV access in every room
- FREE laundry!
- Temperature controls in each room
- Secure key card entry for the building and student rooms
- 24/7 security
- Vibrant neighborhood with inexpensive restaurants – not in midtown
- Large student lounge
- Outdoor terrace on second floor

We plan to house all the men in the new building while the Herald Towers
and the Vogue will be reserved for female students. Members of Residence
Life will meet with your House next week to discuss the fall housing
transition and answer any questions you may have. You may also expect to
learn more about housing costs over the next few weeks as well.
I’m thankful that the College is growing, it shows God is answering
