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.  

Student Apartments 

NYCIntern provides furnished apartments for students living in New York City. 


Sublets are apartments that a property owner or renter leases out to somebody for a limited amount of time. 

There are several Facebook groups where people seeking housing can post what they’re looking for and contact owners and agents. People will also post apartments that are available to sublet so check back often.

Some sublet sites include Renthop, Sublet.comLeasebreak and Flip.Lease.

Other Housing Options 

Short term rental sites, such as VRBO and Airbnb, have rentals that charge by the month. You will find a range of prices depending on the neighborhood and size. You probably won’t have to pay any of the bills directly — just a cleaning fee — which makes it more hassle-free than subletting.

NYC summer

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 or FIT offer similar options for fixed time frames.  

Carefully read all options and discuss your housing with a parent or guardian. The student assumes full responsibility for location, condition, and contractual terms of the rental.
