Residential Life

Rear of Woodlands Residence Halls with spring flowers in bloomAt Old Westbury, your education isn't limited to the time you spend in the classroom. Our entire campus becomes a place for you to continue growing and learning. That is especially true for resident students.

Approximately 800 Old Westbury students live on campus.  As a residential student, you'll learn what it's like to live with people from different walks of life. You'll enjoy a sense of independence, yet be introduced to the responsibility that comes with being part of a larger community. Best of all, you'll have great experiences and make friends that you keep for life!
