Life at the O'Neill


"Having a group of people – mentors, interns, chefs, facilities – devote this much of their lives and attention to us is a bigger honor than I can begin to express thanks for. This is a magical place."

Cottage Housing

Six dormitory cottages are each home to approximately a dozen students in double or single rooms. All rooms include beds, desks, dressers, and closets and are fully accessible. Each floor has private bathrooms and shower rooms. Every cottage has a common living space to study, socialize, or even stage a scene.


Three meals a day are served on-site by our resident chefs. Special consideration is given to accommodate dietary restrictions and the cafeteria offers continual access to snacks and beverages, essential for late-night playwriting sessions.

NTI Apprentices

Apprentices, often NTI alums, ensure student well-being and are reachable both in-person and by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
