Housing

Housing

Housing is expensive in New York City, so we have set aside a series of rooms at two different places: Carlyle Court (NYU dormitories) and International House. Both places have advantages, but all are shared rooms or apartments.  If you prefer a single, or need privacy, or a more comfortable situation, we recommend pricing hotels or short-term rentals. We encourage you to consider carefully what type of housing is right for you. Once you are accepted into the program, please join our Facebook group so that you can get to know each other and we can make the best matches possible if you do choose to share a room.  

 

Carlyle Court

Carlyle Court is an apartment building right on Union Square. Union Square is centrally located in downtown Manhattan, and the number 6 train to Hunter is across the street from the residence—making it about a half-hour commute. The Union Square Greenmarket, across the street, will be full of vegetables, flowers, and other fresh produce from farmers. There are various movie theaters, pharmacies, and restaurants all within walking distance. Four Summer Scholars will be placed in each apartment; two will share one bedroom and the other two will sleep in the main area next to the kitchen. The price per resident is $200 weekly, for a total of $600. Apartments look over a courtyard, which should make them less noisy—Union Square has a bustling nightlife.  There is security in the building at the front desk until 9PM. NYU students will be occupying apartments in the same building.

 

Walking into the rooms you will find two extra long twin beds. Each bed has a dresser, lamp, desk and closet nearby. The other bedroom has the same setting. There is one bathroom and a small common table by the kitchen. The rooms will be cleaned when you arrive, however you must provide your own pillows, linens, and any kitchen utensils. The garbage chute is next to the apartments; recycling is downstairs. Each apartment has a full fridge, central air, a stove and an Internet connection, but no microwave.

 

Rooms have been reserved from July 10th through July 30th, for a total of twenty nights. We will need to know if you choose to reside at NYU by April 5th. If you do choose to reside at the dormitories, the cost will be deducted from your first check.

 

International House

International House, in Morningside Heights, is about an hour commute from Hunter College. The subway stop is 125th Street on the IRT, and you will need to switch to the number 6 train via the shuttle at Times Square to get to Hunter. The apartment building is right on Riverside Drive, which runs along Riverside Park and the Hudson River. Riverside Park is fabulous for biking, running and walking. The bike path extends around Battery Park and up along the East Side of Manhattan. International House has a cafeteria, a pub, and you may also purchase meals in the cafeteria if you wish.

 

Guest rooms are in a separate wing from student housing, and are very much like a hotel— linens are provided and rooms will be cleaned daily.  Each room or suite comes equipped with a small fridge, a television, and a free Internet connection. There is also a Wi-Fi lounge area at International House. Unlike Carlyle Court, rooms may be reserved for one to three people, and you may find that more appropriate if you are bringing family or prefer to share a space with only one other person. A suite consists of two rooms: the bedroom and a living room, as well as a bathroom. A room has two beds and a bathroom. An advantage to renting at International House is that we may hold your reservation until May First, so if you prefer to look around for other housing in the meantime, you may do so. If you do choose to reside at International House, the cost will be deducted from your checks. The breakdown of rooms and prices at International House is as follows:
