Hello everyone, like the topic says, does anyone know how to find on-campus or off-campus housin close to Columbia? It's said that on-campus housing is very hard to apply for graduate students, it that true? I've accepted the offer from GSAPP and I'm worrying about the housing issue....
same here i'm moving from California and have no idea where to turn.
I've applied for campus housing but i'm not going to place all my cards on it.....
Its simple. Unless you've got a financial means, its very difficult to find footing here in NYC.
You're competing for meager housing with non-Americans coming from India, Europe and Asia who have the dough to just come here on a dime and work cheaply because "its my dream to live and work in NY as an architect".
Better open up your checkbook nice and wide.
Go on Craigslist, find an open room in an already established apartment with (probably) fellow students as roommates. NYC is expensive but as long as you're not trying to stay in your own studio in some swanky neighborhood, you'll be fine.
According to GSAPP, they will start the housing application lottery tomorrow.
like any big city, time to start checking craigslist
hmm...current graduate students told me that a majority of them received campus owned housing
They live in Harlem. Plenty of Housing there. Unless you're scared :-)
that's odd.. many of them told me they lived in morningside heights.
According to some NYC real estate brokers, "Morningside Heights" extends as far north as the George Washington Bridge.
interesting. hopefully i'll have housing that is within walking distance.
according to GSAPP's email, i received campus housing! but i don't know the details yet :-/ i pray it is NOT a dorm..
