Finding Summer Housing in NYC

by Lexi Smith

Finding summer housing in NYC can be stressful, confusing, expensive, and very difficult. It’s hard to find a place that fits your price range, your date range, and has amenities that are appropriate for you. So here is your ultimate guide of finding housing for the summer in NYC!


That’s us! We provide summer housing for interns at an elevated way of living. Rather than that typical dorm experience, you will be living and treated like a young professional while living in our Financial District and Downtown Brooklyn housing. All of our rooms are apartments, most even luxury apartments with 24 hour security, kitchens, full private bathrooms, and even some with rooftop balconies and fitness centers! Our prices range anywhere from $3,600 to $5,750 for the full summer term. If you value being treated like a real New York young adult, then NYCIntern is for you. You will be responsible for your own meals, and will live in an actual apartment building.


EHS provides housing all around the city. Their buildings are located in Brooklyn Heights, Upper East Side, Midtown, and the Financial District. They have anything from singles, to doubles, to lofted triples. Some of the rooms have in suite kitchens and bathrooms while others have communal kitchens and bathrooms. All of the buildings have 24 hour security, Wifi, and basic AC and heat utilities. Their prices range anywhere from $3,550 to $8,800 for the full summer term. If you still value living like and adult but want a little bit of college dorm-like treatment, EHS is for you. All kitchens and bathrooms are communal, whether that is for the whole building and floor or in the suites. There are also many communal spaces where you will be able to meet others, and everyone in the building is with EHS.


NYU housing is another great option for summer housing! You do not have to be an NYU student to live with NYU in the summer, but there is one residence building that is for NYU students only. They have two different types of residence halls, four traditional residence halls, and six apartment-style residence halls. If you choose to stay in one of the traditional residence halls, you are required to get a meal plan, but if you chose to live in one of the apartment-style residence halls, the meal plans are not required and there are shared kitchens in the rooms and suites. All suites and apartments have their own bathrooms and have central AC (except one residence hall, Rubin Hall). Their prices range anywhere from $222 to $481 per week and $149 to $269 per week for the meal plans. NYU is your typical college and dorm experience but in the summer. You will most likely have a meal plan and live in an actual dorm. NYU summer housing is for you if this is what you value most.


INTERNZ is run through PACE University, and they have one building at 33 Beekman. The room options at this location include singles, doubles, triples, and quads and the prices range from $3,300 to $5,950. The buildings amenities include 24 hour security, Wifi, microwave, mini fridge, bathroom in room, air conditioning, and a fitness center. There is also a laundromat on site for no extra cost. If you are looking for something in between apartment life and dorm life this INTERNZ is for you. However, they only have one building so if you want to live here in the summer, it is most likely best to reserve your spot as early as possible.


FIT, the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan has their own summer housing program as well. Their location is on the FIT campus in Kaufman Hall. The amenities of the loft-style apartments at Kaufman Hall include air conditioning, full kitchens, private bathrooms, 24-hour security and on-call maintenance staff, fitness center, wireless internet, cable television, and a 24-hour lounge. In addition, the loft-style apartment suites styles include singles, doubles, triples and quads. The prices range from $4,186 to $6,500 for the full summer term. Again, FIT is pretty similar to INTERNZ in the sense that it is in between apartment life and dorm life. FIT is located closer to Midtown so if that location is something you value, then FIT summer housing is for you. They also only have one building so reserve your spot early if possible if you think this is the best option for you.


Lastly, THE NEW SCHOOL also provides a summer internship housing program. There are four residence halls available for summer housing with several different styles and room types. All housing is suite style and include singles, doubles, triples, and quads. All suites have bathrooms and kitchens. The rates are anywhere from $1750 to $4,895 for the eleven week term. Three of the four buildings are located right by Union Square and the fourth is located in Chelsea. These locations are definitely things to think about when you are choosing where to stay in relation to your internship. This is definitely a cheaper option and you will have the opportunity to meet many new people during your stay due to all of the housing being suite style.
