Suite living

Cooper Square is a 12-story building that is home to more than 250 residents each year in 52 suites.  Each bedroom holds up to three residents, and is fully furnished with twin beds, desks, armoires, and dressers. The common area in each suite has a refrigerator, stovetop, and microwave for cooking on your own. Each suite has either two or three bedrooms, with one or two full bathrooms, depending on the number of residents. Floor plans are available here.


Located in the East Village, Cooper Square is in the middle of one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods, and a quick walk to iconic theater and performance spaces, amazing restaurants, and endless things to see and do. Cooper Square is a straight line from MMC’s campus on both the bus and subway, with an estimated typical commute of 30 minutes. The nearest subway is the 6 train at Astor Place, while the 3rd Avenue and St. Marks express bus is just steps away for an above-ground commute.

Our residence hall is not the only construction happening at Cooper Square - the Cooper triangle (between Cooper Square, 3rd Avenue and East 7th Street) as well as Village Plaza (the area between 5th and 6th Streets where Cooper and 3rd Avenue meet) are being renovated into pedestrian plazas, offering students additional outdoor space to enjoy just steps from the residence hall door. Plans for the new pedestrian plazas can be found here
