All rooms are provided with a standard cable package. There is no additional charge for this service and to take advantage of this, guests must have a cable-ready television.
Each unit is equipped with central air conditioning/heat and a wall-mounted thermostat so that guests may maintain and adjust the temperature to their liking. New York City law requires that heat (if temperature dictates) be provided to tenants through May 31 which means that air-conditioning will not be available until June 1.
Every unit has a high-speed Ethernet jack and Wi-Fi to provide Internet access. Internet access requires a login, which will be shared with you in advance. Wi-Fi can also be found in the common spaces on the first floor of your building.
A laundry room, open 24 hours, is located in the basement of the North building. Quarters and debit/credit cards are accepted. You can monitor the status of your washer or dryer by visiting this link: www.laundryview.com/tccu. Choose the 517 West 121st Street location to view the status of your laundry.
Phones in the room are able to call security and the front desk. Phones can call the security desk and Public Safety, but are not able to receive incoming calls or make outgoing calls from numbers outside of Teachers College.
In accordance with New York City's Recycling Program, all of our buildings provide receptacles for recyclable items. These receptacles are located on each floor in the recycling room.
Trash chutes are available on each floor of New Residence Hall. Glass, boxes, hazardous materials and/or other large objects should be taken to the appropriate depository in the basement.
