All programs at the New York Campus are non-residency. As such the Institute does not arrange accommodation on behalf of students.
Students can usually find an apartment or room for a fixed short-term period, e.g. two or six months. It is possible to find fully furnished apartments or rooms that can include linens, kitchenware, etc. As with most large cities rent prices are extremely variable depending on the area and amenities.
When searching for accommodation we recommend students consult accommodation guides, neighborhood guides or rental agencies.
Any legitimate rental prospect will never ask you to wire money, accept or send cashier’s checks and/or money orders, or give out financial information (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.). Avoid correspondence with anyone who asks this of you.
