Off Campus Housing

There are many things to consider when undertaking an apartment search. You should take some time to consider your priorities: location, budget, roommtes, how and when to search. This will help you narrow your search and avoid spending time exploring apartment that really don't fit your goals. If you work with a realtor, thinking about your priorities ahead of time will allow the realtor to more quickly identify apartments you may like.


Searching for an apartment can be a time consuming process. You should be prepared to spend a few weeks conducting your search and should plan to visit NYC in order to see apartments. The peak for finding apartments is late June/early July. Your goal should be to find an apartment by the end of July.
