Off-Campus Housing: Expensive but close to campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Housing in NYC is VERY different than other places (smaller cities). You're looking at smaller units with higher prices, and less amenities. However, it is not too difficult to find roommates, or units for that matter - but know what you are looking for and what you are willing to pay. If you use a Broker/Realtor to help, you will have to pay them 12% of the yearly rent (or sometimes one month, or a discounted rate for some because of student status) for their services. They are ALWAYS busy, especially during the summer, and they're not nearly as helpful (because of this) as what you may have experienced in other places.

Off-Campus Housing: TC does not provide off-campus housing list. They give tips on selecting and contracting housing. But, students interact very actively on housing on facebook and TC portal.

Off-Campus Housing: Used a Broker – I already knew people in the city, which might make it easier to look for an apartment. It is less expensive to live outside of Manhattan, but it will be a bit of a commute.
