On and Off-Campus Housing
Information and applications for housing are mailed to all students accepted into the M.S. or Ph.D. programs at the Institute. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible in order to maximize their chances for securing residences.
Housing at the Health Sciences On-Campus Housing
Over 1,000 students reside on the Health Sciences campus in University accommodations. Housing for both single students and couples is available to full-time matriculated students. The goal of the Health Sciences Housing Office is to provide on-campus housing for as many incoming students as possible. Although on-campus housing is not guaranteed, every effort is made by the Housing Office to provide on-campus housing to students who are coming from outside the metropolitan area.
General information and housing information/application request cards are distributed by the admissions office of your school. Upon receipt of these cards, you should complete the two Housing Request Cards/Mailing Labels and return them to the Housing Office as instructed. Their return will inform the office that you would like either a single or couples student housing application sent to you. Applications are distributed in early May.
The newly established Off-Campus Housing Resource Center has been developed to provide those students who are interested in living in the Morningside or Washington Heights community with the tools and resources needed to find an apartment. The office maintains a list of brokers, available apartments, and useful tips on security and maximizing your search time. The office is located in Bard Hall, Room 105.
