Off-Campus Housing

Many students choose to live off-campus during their graduate school experience. There are many options available, and NYU provides resources designed to aid students in this effort. The NYU Off-Campus Housing Office provides students with the following resources:
  • Short and long-term apartment listings
  • Workshops on the various components to finding off-campus housing
  • Online databases and renting resources
  • Discounts on local real estate brokers
  • Moving & furniture resources
In addition to the NYU Off-Campus Housing office, the MBA Discussion Board is an internal message post available through Campus Groups where current students can post and view available apartments. If you are an NYU alum and would like to post an apartment/room for MBA students, please e-mail the apartment information to MBA Housing.

Students can also reference the list of off-campus housing alternatives to aid in their search. While NYU does not formally endorse these options, many students have found them helpful.
