Residence Hall Director (RHD): Steve To

I am excited to be a part of the Carlyle Court community and serve as your Residence Hall Director. I’m originally from Lawrence, Massachusetts which is about 45 minutes from Boston. I received my BA in Sociology from Boston College in 2010 and decided to continue on there, receiving my MA in Higher Education Administration. After spending the majority of my life in the Boston area, I wanted a change in pace and scenery. New York City has much to offer – vibrant culture, high energy, and a unique environment – everything I hope to incorporate into the student experience at NYU. My favorite things to do are eat, explore/travel, read, and spend quality time with good company. We have an amazing staff here at Carlyle Court – please get to know them and take advantage of everything that we have to offer!


Residence Hall Assistant Director (RHAD): Brittany Tedeschi

Hi everyone! My name is Brittany Tedeschi, and I am the Residence Hall Assistant Director. I am originally from Rhode Island, so I grew up cheering for the Red Sox and referring to water fountains as “bubblers”. After 18 years of snowy winters, I decided to head south for college and went to the University of Miami in Florida. I graduated from UM in 2010 with my BA in Psychology and a minor in Motion Pictures. After college, I completed a term of service with AmeriCorps*VISTA, where I worked for an organization focused on college access, college success, and college readiness programming. I also spent time working as an Assistant Coordinator for Community Service at a small university in Rhode Island. After two years, I moved back down south where I completed my M.Ed. in College Student Affairs Administration at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). I love watching my favorite sports’ teams play (and hopefully, win!), going to Broadway shows, and baking (please feel free to stop by my office – there’s usually a good chance I have some type of treat!). I’m excited to be joining the team here at NYU and am thrilled to be a part of the Carlyle Court staff! We have a fantastic staff and a great location, so I encourage you to take advantage of all that Carlyle and the Union Square neighborhood have to offer.

Residence Hall Resource Manager (RHRM): Priscilla Williams (

I’m Priscilla Williams, the resource center manager here at Carlyle Court. Born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, I have been here at BOTH Carlyle Court and N.Y.U for over 15 years. I’ve seen this area, as well this building evolve. Before coming here my background has been diverse: asistant supervisor in the customer service division at Time Warner Cable, medical malpractice submission processor at Aetna insurance, handled end of trading day stock transactions at Goldman Sachs, worked in the data processing department of E.P.Dutton, a publishing company. As you see, I have a lot of work and life experience to draw from and share.

When I do have some ME time, I relax by knitting, reading, bike riding, horseback riding, indoor rock climbing, travelling. I am a very active volunteer with several organizations (New York Road Runners, The Mayor’s Alliance for Animals, New York Cares, The Achilles Club). I am a passionate New Yorker and love the energy of the city! I’m known for my knowledge of N.Y.U and N.Y.C, quick wit, and out-going nature. If you need assistance or just want to stop by and say “Hello”, I look forward to meeting you!
