Parsons New York

Shared Apartments

  • Parsons Paris will accept applications from students interested in sharing an apartment with peers in fall 2014 and spring 2015. Shared apartments are intended primarily for mobility, master’s, and upper-level visiting students.

    An average apartment configuration is a 60-square-meter (about 650-square-foot) two-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, living-dining room, and bathroom. All apartments are located within the city of Paris and are no more than a 30- to 40-minute commute from Parsons Paris, with a maximum of one transfer on public transportation.

    Each apartment houses four students; bedrooms are double occupancy. Some apartments may house more than four students (with a maximum of eight students).

    Bedroom Features

    • 90-by-190-cm beds (comparable to an American-style twin bed)
    • New hotel-quality linens and towels
    • No more than two beds per bedroom (single rooms may have one or two beds but are occupied by one person)
    • At least one desk and chair per bedroom
    • Wardrobe space, including space for hanging and folded clothes

    Apartment Features

    • High-speed wireless Internet connection
    • Upholstered seating for each student
    • A dining table with a chair for each student
    • A kitchen outfitted with new or like-new cooking equipment, utensils, and dishes and cutlery for each occupant
    • An oven or large microwave–toaster oven, full-size refrigerator, cooktop, and washing machine
    • Allowance for utilities of up to 50 euros per person (more than enough for occupants using a reasonable amount of energy)

    Security and Maintenance

    • All buildings have lobbies with lockable front doors (none of the apartments have doors opening directly onto the street).
    • All apartments are equipped with a deadbolt lock.
    • 95 percent of apartments are above the ground floor. Ground-level apartments have extra security measures on windows.
    • All apartments are equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.
    • Online, on-call maintenance service is available.
    • Renter’s insurance and liability insurance are included.

    The cost for the 2014–2015 academic year is $6,500 per semester per student.
