Housing

Students are responsible for all food and transportation costs. Students will be responsible for arranging their own housing and many use NYU’s housing.  The NYU Summer housing application is typically available in late February and they recommend that students sign up for the Summer Interest Form, which can be found here, in order to be kept updated on informational events and the application process.  There are a number of other organizations that cater to summer interns in New York city and you can find properties located throughout Manhattan and nearby Brooklyn, none of which are more than a direct, thirty-five minute subway ride away from the Program’s base at the Manhattan Marymount. The Study Away office can provide additional information to interested students.  Students may also opt to secure their own housing or commute into New York City from nearby locales.
