New York City Housing
While there are multiple options for housing throughout New York City, student housing is in high demand. Start your search early to secure housing within your price range, in your desired location, and with your preferred features.
We provide information to help you find housing while you participate in the UTNY program, both in the following section and after being admitted to the program. The inclusion of a housing solution in this section does not constitute a recommendation, guarantee, or endorsement by The University of Texas at Austin or UTNY. The resources provided on this page are not a comprehensive list of the options available to students for housing, and students may find other housing options on their own.
Wherever you decide to live, admitted students must provide proof of housing and address information to UTNY no later than the first day of class.
Student Dorm-style Housing
Educational Housing Services (EHS)
UTNY students can work directly with Educational Housing Services (EHS) which provides fully furnished, double occupancy dormitory-style rooms at locations throughout the city. EHS facilitates roommate requests and location preferences to help students make the most of their stay in the city.
The EHS facilities serve nearly 85 universities and colleges across the country, offer high-speed internet, TV, cable, and phone service in each room. In addition, the facilities have common kitchens, meeting rooms, workout facilities, laundry, and 24-hour security.
Summer-only Student Housing at New York City-based Universities and Schools (based on availability)
Summer student housing works just like normal student housing, charging room and board. New York University has week-by-week and monthly rates for students during the summer. Other schools like The New School offer similar options for fixed time frames.
Carefully read all options and discuss your housing with a parent or guardian. You assume full responsibility for location, condition, and the contractual terms of your rental.
