The cost of living in New York City is higher than most cities in the United States. Students should assess their finances and develop a budget for rent, utilities (electricity, hot water, heat, phone, cable TV, Internet, etc.), transportation to and from school, furniture, and groceries. Developing a budget will narrow your search to apartments within your price range.
There are many online resources and services that provide helpful procedural information, rental tips, and considerations for apartment hunters. Available apartments are listed in classified ads in local newspapers, in online Web sites, and through brokers. However, brokers are likely to charge a fee equivalent to one month’s rent, so be sure you have the funds, if you go that route. Below is a list of some Web sites to browse.
Additionally, current College Division students and verified Alumni can join our closed Facebook group, the Juilliard Off-Campus Housing Forum, to find listings from fellow Julliard students and alumni or to look for new roommates.
