The school has a Center for the Jewish Future, which sponsors projects like the YU Torah Online. Students design regular Shabbat programs, and produce publications at each campus, including newspapers The Commentator and The Observer.
Clubs and activities are maintained by the students in each school, generally under the auspices of a student government. Besides, YU is just a short distance from shopping, Broadway, Central Park, and a variety of museums.
Freshmen are not required to live on campus, though many choose to do so. However, approximately 80% of the undergraduate student populations live on campus.
