4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Being in NYC, there are a lot of options; however, rent is very high everywhere.

Off-Campus Housing: It's NYC, what can you expect? Find roommates and split the rent if possible

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive but close to campus.

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: Very expensive, lots of work to obtain a new lease
