Live and Learn In New York

Your first days in New York City

Welcome to New York! We are excited to meet you at your placement test! We understand that coming to live in New York City is not an easy process. To help make the transition easier we have created a webpage with subway information/directions, how to write your address in NYC, and important phone numbers to know while living in the city. Click here for this information.


The New York campus is located in downtown Manhattan in the heart of the City's financial district. It is a short walk from Wall Street, Chinatown, Little Italy, Tribeca, SoHo and the South Street Seaport. The major bus and subway lines run by the campus, so it is easy to get to stores, theaters, restaurants and museums. The New York City campus, located in the heart of the civic and financial center of the city, is impressive not only in its physical attributes, but as an intellectual and cultural focal point for one of New York City's most dynamic and revitalized areas.

Residence Halls

Students will live in one of the four residence halls walking distance from campus: 182 Broadway, 106 Fulton Street, 55 John Street, or 33 Beekman. Please note that students will be placed where space is available. Students are assigned to double, triple, or quad rooms - there are no private rooms. If a double room is not available by the time of the reservation you will be placed into the next available room type by the Office of Housing & Residential Life (triple room, quad room).

**Please note we cannot guarantee an American roommate.
