Affordable student housing within walking distance of The New School is available for the four weeks of the Lang New York Summer Intensive workshops. The move-in date is May 26, 2014; the move-out date is June 21, 2014.
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.
New School residences offer the following features:
- Furnished suite-style units with shower bathrooms in the suite (all summer housing is shared)
- Kitchenettes with full-size refrigerators
- 24-hour security
- Air-conditioned rooms
- High-speed Internet and cable television jacks in rooms
- On-site laundry facilities
- Common lounges and study rooms
- Gyms and art studios in some facilities
- Location within walking distance of The New School and easy access to public transportation
- Resident advisors on duty nightly from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.

Guests and Curfew
Entry to our residence halls is monitored at all times. Every residence hall has a security guard at the front desk 24 hours a 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. Students 18 years of age or younger on the date of their check-in to the residence hall are subject to curfew and cannot have overnight guests in their rooms.

Students are not required to live on campus, although we strongly recommend it. The Housing Office maintains a list of shares and sublets that may be of assistance to those who are visiting from out of town and prefer to find their own housing.
