• Lang Summer Intensive

    Affordable student housing within walking distance of The New School is available for the four weeks of the Lang New York Summer Intensive workshop.   

    New York City is one of the safest big cities in the United States. However, rents are high and a suitable short-term sublet or share may be hard to find. For that reason, we strongly encourage undergraduates visiting from outside the metropolitan region to live in a university residence hall. Housing is guaranteed to Eugene Lang College summer students who apply by April 1.

    Costs and Availability

    First, register for a New York Summer Intensive course. As soon as you receive confirmation of your registration, you can submit the online application for summer housing below:

    The application for summer 2016 is available here. To register, find "Lang Summer Intensive (5/29-6/25)" on the list of conferences and click Sign Up.

    Full payment is required when you submit your application. All housing accommodations are suite style and have shared bedrooms. Because of the structure of our suites, married or co-ed rooms are not available. Space is limited. The deadline to apply for guaranteed housing is April 15.

    Refund Policy

    Cancel up to four weeks prior to check-in: 100% refund; cancel three weeks prior to check-in: 50% refund; cancel two weeks or less prior to check-in or after the program begins: no refund.


    There is no meal plan, but residents can cook in their rooms. In the neighborhood, there are restaurants, cafes, and fast-food venues to suit every need and budget.


    Entry to our residence halls is monitored at all times. Every residence hall has a security guard at the front desk 24 hours per day. All guests, including parents, guardians, and siblings, must leave a photo ID and register in the guest log when visiting.

    Students 19 years of age and older can request overnight guest accommodations, which are available on a limited basis. Please see your Residence Hall Office for more information.

    Review the New School Housing Handbook for complete information about student residence regulations and policies. Read the university's Safety and Preparedness Information for advice and information about personal safety and emergency management.

    Although we highly recommend it, students are not required to live on campus. If you are visiting from out of town and prefer to find your own housing, the Housing Office maintains a list of shares and sublets that may be of assistance. Send an email to for more information.
