We have received several reports of flooding this month in the student accommodation at the Juilliard School.
One student writes:
It’s 2:30am right now!!!! My room literally is a water fountain!!!!! All my stuff are fucked up!!!!! BTW, this is the dorm cost people $7900 per semester. Thanks a lot Juilliard!!!
Update: The cause is the sprinkler burst out. Besides all my stuff are soaked, my phone and computer went weird, and I smell like ass while I only wear soaking wet underwear. Everything is good. No one got hurt. What a night!!
This is the second time there has been a flood in the Juilliard dorms during my brief time here. Of course, the day after last year’s flood, the administration (led by Todd Porter) sent out an email claiming that they were accountable for nothing, and would not be reimbursing anyone for damages, even to precious instruments. They will surely do this again today.
What’s even more shameful is that this flood comes a mere 3 weeks after winter break, when the dorms were controversially shut down completely, turning away even international students, in order to allow for “comprehensive, building-wide maintenance”.

I love how the Juilliard dorms shut down during winter break for “comprehensive, building-wide maintenance” and then less than 3 weeks into second semester, a huge pipe burst results in the flooding of entire suites and the destruction of what could be thousands of dollars worth of personal property…
On Thursday, the Director of Residential Life at Juilliard sent out a memo saying that the school will not be held responsible or pay compensation for damage caused by the floods.
Slipped Disc respectfully suggests that Juilliard should reconsider and would like to hear when they do so.
