• New York City Summer Internship Housing

    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.

    Stuyvesant Park Residence and Kerrey Hall are a short walk from Union Square, a summer evening hangout for young people from all over the city and the venue for the Union Square Greenmarket, held four days a week. The 20th Street residence is located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan at Eighth Avenue and 20th Street. All of our residence halls are a short walk from major subway lines that connect residents to all corners of NYC.

    All housing accommodations are suite style and have shared kitchens and bathrooms. 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.
