New York Law School, which opened its doors in 1891, dedicated its very first student residence hall last week — a 13-story building in the East Village that houses 99 future attorneys in two- and three-bedroom furnished apartments at rents that today’s Manhattanites would likely consider a bargain.

Dean Richard A. Matasar said he would continue hunting for additional sites to meet an increasing apartment demand from New York Law’s student body of 1,500. If unsuccessful in a unilateral search, Matasar said, he would initiate talks with other city colleges and universities to collaborate on a grand-scale student residency plan.
