    Hi Ketu,

    I will also be attending NYU this fall & am looking for some on campus / off campus housing. But as of now i dont know whether one should go for it or look for housing themselves.Do you have any idea how much it would cost for a single studio on campus? I am planning to stay somewhere close to our college to avoid travel time, but still iam not familiar with the neighborhood to make any decision. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Hope to meet you soon,

    Opal

  6. Are you guys Indian or something? :) Anyways, I'd like to throw myself into the mix. I'll be attending NYU Dental School and I'm looking for other people in the same boat as me. My email is [email protected] . I'm thinking about going with the Campus housing on 26th street but I still need a roommate. I'm also open to other suggestions. Lets start an email list. Maybe we can get our housing taken care off and not have to worry about it all summer :)

    Hi Hossaiaa

    welcome, actually campus housing is not so convinient. But your suggestions are welcome and we will try to help you to find a roommate. let me know your gender and Veg non vegetarian options.
     
  8. Hello Ketu.
    I'm curious as to why you said campus housing is not so convenient. At this point, I think I know the least about NYU housing than anyone else here so I hope you don't mind all the questions. BTW, I am male and non vegetarian. Thanks for your help.

    Hi snehal,

    I was also planning to commute from NJ before but as I came to know about the unsafety of Subway in the evenings I have changed my mind.
    But look over it like this, your daily traveling expenses and living expenses in NJ equals same as living expenses in Manhattan and closer to school. may be you just have to same some 100$ more than what are those total expenses , but this is safe and colser to school so if you have no lecture in between you can come back home. Plus safety in Manhattan, i mean if we take the house closer to school we can go by the school shuttle bus which will leave us right in front of the apartment.

    I think it is up to you to decide, this was just a suggestion, as to I dont know whether you are a male or female.

    hi ketu229,
    i think you r right , i am female but my concer is i am married and my husband is in new jersy so i am interested in new jersy in this way we both can split some time for traveling......... but if u r liiving alone , your calculation is right.... agian if i want to stay in manhattan then my husband has to pay toll everyday and we have to pay for parking also ( for his car ) so this is again costly for me .this is my concern .......... any way if u can able to find something good off campus ....... that is reallly good.

    hi ketu299,
    and i don't know about subway but i am preety sure about path train that is good option for us for traveling to college as we need not to change train and it is easy and safe,again nyc itself is costlier than nj...... + sales tax ..so though we r not paying for transportation but all other expenses like laundry , groccery .......etc are costly as nyc is costlier .......
    this is my thinking ......and suggestion ....... any way i am Indian, Gujrati , vegeterian girl.......also want to share apprtment.....any suggestions always welcome
     
  14. Hey Ketu299,
    I think the 2 bedroom apts on the 26th St. Residence all have kitchens and living rooms, besides the two bedrooms. I'm a guy but in the next several years I plan to perfect my art of cooking. Ok fine, I can't cook worth a dime but I'm gonna give it a shot anyway :)

    Hello Everyone,

    I am starting my studies in NYU in August. I am moving from Canada to NY with my wife and need to know if there are any particular areas where most of the students are residing, perhaps in similar situation as me. I am new to NY and it will be a great help if someone could pinpoint areas or cities that are convenient to commute from and may also have other students residing there. Is N.J. or Queens a good option, what cities in these areas are closer to subways? and How are the rents? I will greatly appreciate help in this regard. Thanks a lot guys !

    My e-mail address is [email protected]

    Hi Everyone,

    I just discovered this site ? wish I had known about this earlier. Everyone is so helpful here, and it is so nice and comforting to know people in the same boat as I am. :thumbup:

    I am planning on attending NYU starting this August. About me: I am Indian married female currently living in Seattle. Unfortunately, my husband will not be moving with me :( , so I am looking to share an apartment, or a studio apartment to live alone.

    If someone is in the same boat as me regarding housing, please PM me and we can get in touch. Also, I would appreciate any insight and advice on how to find off-campus housing.

    hi guys

    do check out craigslist.com and choose the city u want. we used this to find apts when we were looking for one in NY some time ago.

    if u are indian, u might be able to find something useful on sulekha.com for NYcity too. u need to choose new york in sulekha too.

    a lot of people stay in jersey city and commute to NYC and travel by the PATH trains. do check out that website.

    and anywhere u stay in new york city, u have the subway system, so it shouldnt be too much of a problem. how safe the area is and time are the only factors probably. and of course price. usually the cheapest 1BR apt u can get in NY is $1100 a month inclusive of heat and hot water.

    hope this helps.

    good luck to all of u......... :luck:

    I guess we all are in same boat. Looks like the NYU version of "Friends" :laugh: ... Ok according to my "re"-search I can say that there are couple of options there

    (1) Dorms (I guess you can enjoy the NYC life but its costly option so, not for me)

    (2) Jersey City (Ok PATH trains are another (may be only) option to explore) near to Journal SQ. but its not safe at all. I know some friends who had bad experince while returning late evening after 8-9 pm) So I wouldn't advise this to female.

    (3) Now only option left is NewPort(Pavonia)/Hoboken - (again PATH to 9th St. /23/33rd St). Rent for 2 bdrm is from 1400/2200 depends on the location of the apartment (well parking may be extra). Very safe neighbourhood, and SAFE and near to train station! So can't beat that. (again its in NJ so taxes and other expenses doesn't have NYC lebel on it! and still its same as NYC!)

    If we all are in same boat then should be able to get decent deal if we can share the apartments in NewPort/Hoboken.

    Any thoughts/comments?

    -Ashesh.

    hi ashesh
    I agree with you, we need to stay in safe neighbourhood and less traveling time.
    Have you been to this place and looke for the aparments? if yes can you let me know the number and address of the office. I am looking to go personally and visit the places so I can figure out where exactly to stay.
    thanks for feedback guys.

    hi ganesha,
    first of sorry for delayed response ........well actually i am not very good for advice u about your situation that which place in NJ is good for your situation , but their is couple of options like jersy city , hobokon, new port......are good for travelling from nyu as it is close to nycity though not so costly..........and i couldn't get u that whether u want to stay in NJ or what? but if u are staying at one of these places than path trains are good for travelling and less time consuming ........ so i think that is good option.i hope this will help u

    Hi,
    For people interested in Newport, the website is newportnj.com. it doesnot contain apartment listings. But it gives the contact number for newport rental office.
    I personally live in Newport and it is a pretty good place. But mind you, it is not Manhattan. It is about 15 minutes from newport to 14th street by PATH and the trains are frequent and safe.The rent here for 1 bedroom normally starts from 1300-1400 and upwards depending on the floor, building and view. And the rent doesnot include heat. The heating in NEwport is through electric heaters and it comes in your Electricity bill.

    Note for people trying to find a place in NYC- Upper East Side is generally more expensive than Upeer West Side and don't look for apartments beyond 95th street on upper east side and 100th on upper west side. It is not ver safe (The word safe is a relative term. You got to be careful in any place)

    Do mail if you have any questions.

    I am also a married indian female accepted at NYU. I am searching for a room-mate to share an apt. Having spokend to second and third years at NYU, I have decided that Jersey City (New Port) is the most optimal place to live and commute to school. The commute is about 20min via PATH train and is very convenient. I have started searching apts. and would be glad to know ur thoughts. Please respond if u r intersted. Nice 2 know u.
    best :thumbup:

    Hi, Just wanted to say, I am back from India after a long vacation :laugh: . Couldn't get on the web for a long time.
    Well, here I am now. Just filled application for NYU on-campus housing. I am opting to live in a shared appartment close to the college. Still working on the immunization requirements.

    To share my 2 cents.. NYU fees structure shows both with and without on-campus housing. If you opt for on-campus housing, the fees includes your boarding expenses. Either way, NYU fees is the highest :rolleyes: . You don't HAVE TO stay on-campus in the first year, its optional.

    interesting to read about housing in the big apple.

    I have been searching for a one- bedroom in SF for 3 weeks. The ones that look decent enough are often 1300-1500 /month with parking extra! :eek: 1150 is not bad at all! especially considering that school housing in SF charges even more than that :eek:

    hey organic,
    school housing(26th street) is $7040 per person sharing a 2 bed room dorm for 4.5 months so u do the math....it is not 1150...that is for off campus.
    so sf is still cheaper.
    plus additonal for parking if u have a car.min $500 per month.

    Hey I am planning on attending NYU this Fall and was wondering if someone else is looking for a roomate. Im going to be staying at 26th Street Apts for the year. I dont party at all and am East Indian. I will be visiting NY in June from the 7th-11th. I could meet up with you and get to know you before orientation arrives in August.

    Also, which loans are preferred out of the following:
    1) Citibank Loan
    2) Sallie Mae Loan

    Any thoughts or recommendations???????????



    Thanks,

    Rocky
