Following is a listing of places where Ithaca College students have rented in New York City. The College has not assessed these listings, but provides them as starting points as you plan your housing search.

Disclaimer: The College does not endorse any of these listings, and will remove any that students indicate should be removed and add listings as students suggest. We recommend that you work with a reputable real estate agent or canvass your family and friends for suitable leads. Only you and your family know what is suitable for you. We do not recommend Craig’s List. As part of your housing search, consider not only the apartment itself, but also the neighborhood, in the daytime and at night. Don’t sign anything without first seeing the place you propose to rent!  Some of our students have commuted in from New Jersey or Connecticut.

Rockefeller Center furnished apartments are just minutes from the Theatre District, Times Square and Radio City Music Hall. According to a Spring 2014 student, “cable and internet costs are about $150 a month. Utility costs varied. We have had utility charges of $69, $248, and $138. They have different sized apartments – families live there and there are some single occupancy apartments, I believe. There is a gym on the top floor that is included as well as 24-hour doorman. There is a laundry room.”

The Residence Hall@ Brooklyn College
1 Kenilworth Place
Brooklyn, NY  11210

“Situated less than a block from buses and two blocks from the subway on B, Q2 and 5 trains which will take students to Manhattan in 30 minutes … Brooklyn College is two blocks away. The Residence Hall at Brooklyn College is nicely appointed with a range of facilities and room types. The costs range from $5770/semester for a bunk bed in a two-bedroom ‘apartment’ (one small shared room with frig., hotplate, etc., one private room and a bath) to $9,500 for a studio apartment with bath. The various layouts are at www.1kenilworth.com along with an online application. It takes between 45 minutes to an hour on the 5 train to Grand Central. Most of the residents are Brooklyn College students and there are RAs and a staff in the building along with 24-hour security.”

Financial Aid

Before the end of the semester, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to meet with Barbie Bargher (bbargher@ithaca.edu) in Student Financial Services to find out how your financial aid package will apply to your semester in New York City. Be sure to ask about the schedule for the disbursement of funds and consider whether you will need to request an adjustment to this schedule to accommodate the payments you may need to make in New York City, especially for the housing you have arranged.

If you need an advance on your financial aid, the Student Financial Services office will need a cost breakdown on your first month’s expenses (this would be a credit balance after all applicable fees have been paid to Ithaca College).
