• New York City Summer Internship Housing

    The application for Summer 2015 will be available in early February 2015.  Please continue to check back for updates!

    New School housing offers a safe and convenient home base in New York City for all summer interns and college students, whether they are affiliated with The New School or with other colleges and universities.

    This year, we are offering housing in four suite-style residence halls for students doing internships in New York City over the summer: the 20th Street Residence, the Stuyvesant Park Residence, Kerrey Hall, and Loeb Hall.

    The 20th Street Residence is located in the heart of Chelsea, with art galleries, excellent dining, the High Line, and Hudson River Park all within a few blocks. The Stuyvesant Park Residence, Kerrey Hall, and Loeb Hall are all a short walk from Union Square, a summer evening hangout for young people from all over the city and the venue for the famous Greenmarket, held four days a week.

    All housing accommodations are suite style and have shared kitchens and bathrooms used by other suitemates. Because of the structure of our suites, co-ed rooms and rooms for married couples are not available. Please note that single rooms are limited in number and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.


    To be eligible for summer internship housing, you must be a degree-seeking student at a college or university in the United States or abroad and either have an internship assignment in New York City or nearby or be registered to take summer classes at The New School or another local college or university. Documentation of your status may be requested at any time after you apply for housing (see the application form).

    Summer Housing Concierge

    Having a place to sleep and connect to the Internet in New York City is essential, but The New School believes that visiting students need more than just basic amenities. Both residences offer scheduled programs and concierge service. Students are encouraged to ask the concierge for tips about dining, entertainment, and other activities; places of interest; and directions to and from wherever they wish to go.

    Cancellation Policy

    All cancellations of housing contracts must be made in writing to the assistant director of summer programs and housing services (see address below). The refund schedule is as follows:

    The $250 housing application fee (included in the initial cost listed above and included in the payment) is forfeited in all instances.
