student accommodation in new york

For a successful stay in New York we believe you need a friendly and comfortable environment and it is for this reason that we do our best to ensure it. We carefully select and regularly visit each accommodation. With most of them we've been working since the beginning. Rooms are booked from the Sunday before the first course day until Saturday morning after the last day of lessons. Extra nights are subject to availability and can be added upon request.

In New York we offer the following types of accommodation:
Student residence
Host family
Host family +

Student residence

We offer stay in a student residence in Upper Manhattan, a great and very safe neighborhood, right next to the Riverside Park. During your stay in this residence, you will enjoy stunning views of the area, you will be just a 5 minutes’ walk away from the NYC subways and from Midtown Manhattan. Another great benefit of staying at the Student Residence is that you will have many opportunities to meet other students from around the world. It is a 20 - 25 minute commute to the school.

Single and double rooms are offered. Air-conditioning, heating and cable TV are included in the rooms. There’s also free Internet access and 24-hour surveillance for your safety in the residence. Your stay also includes a use of the fitness room and laundry room.

Please note we cannot guarantee availability for the student residence. In case a place in the student residence is not available we can offer you alternative accommodation in a host family for the corresponding prices published at our website. Make sure to book in advance. Double rooms are only available for students travelling together.

Host family

Learn about American culture and practice your English while staying with one of our American host families during your stay in New York. Our host families are located in the following city areas: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Jersey City and Hoboken. Please mind a host family could sometimes be not the typical family, but could also consist of a single woman (with or without children) who likes to cook for foreign students. We currently offer two types of host families; the standard host family and the ‘host family +’.

Host family
Our standard host families are located in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Jersey City, Hoboken and Manhattan above 126th Street, between 40 minutes and 1h30 minutes travel distance to the school. With the standard single room option you share the bathroom, but we also offer you the possibility to book a room with your own private bathroom. Moreover, you can choose between having (self-served) breakfast-only or half board, which includes a daily (self-served) breakfast and dinner, depending on your needs.

Host family +
Our ‘host families +’ are located inside Manhattan below 97th Street. A daily (self-served) continental breakfast is made available at a time that is mutually convenient (coffee, tea or milk, bread or toast, fruit, jam, butter).

Please mind that in all host families the kitchen is to be used only for preparing small snacks, tea or coffee. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students booking together.

We can guarantee availability for host family reservations if we receive your booking and down payment at the latest 3 weeks prior to the start date of your course.
