3 Kinds of Housing Available for Pace University Students in New York

Students who study at the English Language Institute at Pace University in New York City or nearby Westchester have many housing options available to them.

In addition to staying on one of Pace’s student residences, here are three great choices:

#1  Homestays


Living with a family is a great way to meet people, practice your English and get a real sense of how New Yorkers live.

To find a homestay in NYC or Westchester, speak with American Homestay Network (AHN).

#2  Hotels and hostels


For short-term stays, a hotel or cheaper hostel is a convenient place to stay. The ELI works with different organizations to help our students find a place that suits their needs and budget.

In New York City, the Aloft Manhattan Downtown, which is just around the corner from Pace’s downtown campus, has special rates for ELI students.

The Vanderbilt YMCA and West Side YMCA are commonly used by students. Rooms are basic, but a swimming and gym are free for guests. They are an easy subway ride away from our downtown campus and an easy walk to our Midtown Center.

Many students at our Westchester/ White Plains campus stay in the heart of White Plains at the local YMCA.

#3 Apartments

Live like a New Yorker in your own apartment.

You can find an apartment or roommate through 4stay.
