Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Almost all of the students who attend Lehman (aside from those few who live in the one residential townhouse reserved for Lehman students) live off campus because Lehman is a commuter college. That being said, Lehman students are subjected to the same ridiculous apartment rental prices, and have the same struggle as all other New Yorkers when it comes to finding apartments.

However, students can always contact the CUNY residential office to try to find affordable housing for students, or they can look up apartments to rent on Craigslist (which a lot of New Yorkers do). Students can also seek housing through word of mouth or through flyers posted on campus by people seeking roommates.
