The computers are mostly Mac's and they're all state-of-the-art equipped with accessible printers as well. While the computer lab is great, sometimes the computers throughout the School are not working properly. The inconsistency should be addressed.

Most Juilliard students live on campus. Student Affairs usually has some sort of activities going on for the students...be it a holiday celebration, guest speakers on subjects that relate to entertainment careers, free food and movies. Our campus is fabulous. For dance, drama and music we pretty much have state of the art facilities to study our craft.

Health & Safety:
Juilliard is a part of Lincoln Center and security is everywhere. There is not a time that I don't feel safe and secure.

Juilliard is a pretty diverse campus on all aspects...race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

As a freshman, students are mandated to live on campus in the dorm. My experience was not that good. Our suite was very outdated, it smelled, bathrooms/showers were in horrible condition with mold and extensive signs of where on the ceiling and floors. The students were also responsible for cleaning of the suite and bathrooms...that was like the beginning of germs being built up for the entire year. Students don't know how to clean and clean so that germs are not being spread. I hated the experience in the dorms because of the filth and condition.

Guys & Girls:
They are very dedicated to their studies but also very nice. Everyone works very hard and very long hours because the classes are very long and then there is a lot of practice time needed. When one goes out to unwind they are super nice and very encouraging. The girls are really pretty and everyone is super smart. There is a wonderful diversity with people from 39 countries.

There is no parking for the school, you'd have to park on the street and that is VERY hard and expensive (plus you would need to keep moving the car every few hours during the day. There is a parking garage for the area but that is VERY expensive. You really do not need a car at all.
College Sophomore 2012-09-27T21:11:36Z
You can get public transportation (subways) a block away and taxis (but they are can get very expensive) are not hard to find. Feet work great and it is a wonderful area to find everything you need close by.

Great Program, Loaded Schedule – I am a dance major at The Juilliard School. The faculty and classes offered to the dancers are beneficial and challenging. The faculty pay a great deal of attention the individual student, to help give them personal attention and help each dancer improve. However, the students' schedules fill up very quickly. We are in class all day and can be in rehearsal until 10:30 pm. This makes it difficult for students to stay on top of their work in their academic classes.

Having a car in New York City is both unnecessary and a hassle. Spots in parking lots can cost hundreds of dollars, which is money that most students need to keep in their pockets.

Decent Quality and Reliable Equipment. The computers in my school are fairly dated, but the programs on the computer are updated and function properly. The lab is fairly small and is usually pretty crowded during cram periods at the end of a semester. One great thing about the computer lab is that there is always a monitor to tend to printer and computer malfunctions.

All Basic Needs Met, Plus a Few Special Needs. Juilliard has a good, basic computer lab, with fairly recent computers and programs. There are also newer computers with good special programs for the music students and people to help with technical problems and navigational questions. Internet is good, sometimes it gets stuck. The lab gets crowded pretty quick during finals and midterms, even regular lunch hour on occasion. Printers are good.

Campus Is Too Small/Intimate for Blatant Drug/Alcohol Use. Most people do their drinking and drugs at home after school and only rarely come to school high or drunk. Smoking regular cigarettes just outside is very prevalent though.

Rubbing Shoulders With Brilliancy. Being surrounded by brilliant people - faculty, staff and peers - has provided an incredible environment of sky high expectations and ways and means to reach them. With the administration there are often moments of discouragement, misunderstanding and there is room for more departure from stereotypes or subjective priorities, but the overall success of the curriculum and teaching methods are worth the trouble.

I can't say that I have ever heard of any level of Greek life at Juilliard.

There are subway stop all around Juilliard so it's pretty easy to get to and you can get anywhere from New York. So not half bad.

A Lot of Work – The drama audition process is complicated. You must fill out the application online, pay the $50 processing fee, and submit your personal essay.
You are asked to prepare four monologues: two modern two classical, contrasting. Then you get your audition call-time, and date. You go to a large open call and then are asked to perform two monologues and sing 16 bars of a song of your choice. After this the call back list is posted. If you get a callback you stay all day and then perform your monologues for the entire faculty. Then you go home.
If you get a callback from there it is for the final callback weekend in March. Here you share your monologues once more or the faculty and then proceed to take classes for two days with forty other students while you decide if you like the school and while the Juilliard faculty observes your work. They then cut this group down to the final 18 for the class(9 men, 9 women).

Cheaper Than Campus – You can find a two bedroom 20 min from the school for a third of the price you pay on campus. Also, at this cheaper price you get to have a kitchen, your own room, and not be surrounded by the constant warm-ups of the hundreds of musicians you share the dorms with.
Talk to the school to make sure that you're in a safe area. Anything right off of subway line, east/west-village, midtown, or west of Broadway is typically pretty safe
HOWEVER, in the dorms there are two pianos on every floor of the dorms, so if that interests you (24 hour access to pianos) then maybe the dorms are worth the steep markup? Your choice.

The administration, in my two years at Juilliard, doesn't make frivolous rules: just don't forget the school opens late on Sundays, and you WILL NOT be let in.
The dorms have a man in charge of them who is power hungry and very condescending to the students: even though many of the graduate students are very close to his age. I have heard nothing but horrible reviews when it comes to him, and my interactions with him have always been less than pleasant. He is the type of man who goes with the "letter of the law", instead of supporting the "spirit of the law"

Great options around the campus, but they are steep mid-town prices.

We're Always High – Being at Juilliard is difficult because as artists we are always forced to push the boundries of creativity. This being said, drugs and alcohol are abundant in the dorms and school; people are always smoking joints in the practice rooms and chugging beers before class to ensure they are thinking at the highest possible creativity levels.

Student Life – The Freshman class is half guys half girls in the dance department and we are like family. We totally support one another & go on outings on a regular basis.

A fabulous library including music. The dance rooms overlook the city and the music rooms have incredible acoustics. The theaters are amazing as well. NYC has any kind of food or shopping you could want & the dorms overlook Cental Park.

Juilliard Is One-Of-A-Kind – The atmosphere is Juilliard is like no other school I've every encountered. The teachers are amazing, the students are amazing, the administration is amazing. Everyone is involved in making extraordinary art. It's a lot of work, but the rewards are intensely gratifying. I love it here. I know I'm at the right place for me.

The school is near several subway stops, so it is very convenient to move about the city. The price is modest for the service, and you can get anywhere with a subway/bus card and a little walking. Taxis are also an option, but only if you have a deep wallet.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
