Affordable student housing within walking distance of The New School is available for the four weeks of the Lang New York Summer Intensive workshops: move in May 27; move out June 22.
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:
- Furnished suite-style units with shower bathrooms in the suite (all summer housing is shared)
- Kitchenettes with full refrigerators
- 24-hour security
- Air-conditioned rooms
- High-speed Internet and cable television jacks in the rooms
- On-site laundry facilities
- Common lounges and study rooms
- Gyms and art studios in some facilities
- Walking distance to The New School and easy access to public transportation
- Resident Advisors on duty nightly from 5:00 p.m.–8:00 a.m.
