Meet Your Student Services Team


The Office of Student Services is located on the 5th floor of William and June Warren Hall.

Much of our portfolio is dedicated to the J.D. experience although we do coordinate events for both the J.D. and LL.M. populations (student organization support, University mandated compliance matters and graduation). In general please reach out if you have questions about orientation, academic advising, academic support, student organization support, journals, diversity and inclusion programming, health and wellness programs, housing, graduation, or are simply experiencing a disruption that impacts your ability to study.

The general number for the Office of Student Services is 212-854-2395, and our fax is 212-854-8843. We can be reached by email at [email protected] or by regular mail at 435 W. 116th St., MB B-25, New York, NY 10027.
