Campus

Located at the academic heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the Manhattan School of Music campus is designed to meet all the needs of young performers. The main building — located at 601 West 122nd Street at Broadway — houses spaces for instruction, performance, dining, research, and study, as well as all administrative offices.

Adjacent to the main building is the residence hall, which, since its inauguration in 2001, has created a dynamic vertical campus for Manhattan School of Music. A nineteen-story building of performance, academic, and residential spaces, the G. Chris and SungEun Andersen Hall includes space for 550 students, and a floor of 24-hour practice rooms.

Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, Andersen Hall houses the William R. and Irene D. Miller Recital Hall, the Alan M. and Joan Taub Ades Performance Space, the Peter Jay Sharp Music Library, the campus store and box office in its five-story base. The building also houses support facilities, including a piano repair shop and storage space for opera sets.

“The four-building ensemble, built over nearly a century, is one of the richest architectural compositions in the city.”
