The information below outlines the overall process for reserving on of the beds in Baruch College’s Residence Hall at 569 Lexington Ave.:
- Complete the Application
Baruch has a limited number of beds available in the Midtown East building, located at 569 Lexington Avenue, a few subway stations away from campus. To reserve a bed, first you must complete the online application.
- Security deposit
All students residing in a Baruch bed must provide a $300 security deposit, paid via wire transfer. The form to use for submitting this deposit can be found here. Please note that it can take a minimum of 5 – 7 days for your security deposit to appear in our system. Security deposits are returned to students after their stay in the hall is complete, on the conditions that there are no damages to the room, you have not declined your housing offer, and/or you have not canceled.
The Housing Fee for each semester (amount dependent upon the type of room are assigned) will be placed on your CUNYFirst account. All payments for this fee should be paid through CUNYFirst. Only the security deposit is to be paid via wire transfer. Please do not send your housing fee by wire transfer as it could potentially cause delays and result in a Bursar hold placed on your account.
- Offer Letter & Licensing Agreement
Once we receive your deposit, if we are able to offer you a bed, you will receive an offer letter and licensing agreement via email. These two documents must be signed and returned electronically before a bed will be assigned.
- Room Assignment & Move In Information
Once all the paperwork has been completed, you will be notified of your room assignment by either Residence Life or FOUNDSTUDY, the organization that manages the building. You will be provided with information on your room, the name of your roommate and information on when you can move in.
Forms Needed for Spring 2023:
Minor Consent (if under 18 years of age)
Rooms are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Any specific requests (roommate preferences, type of room, etc.) will be honored as possible, but is not guaranteed.
