  1. Set Your Budget

Before you begin your search, it’s worth thinking about how much you can comfortably spend on accommodation in NYC. This will help you better understand the type of accommodation you should be looking for in the city, such as a rental apartment or perhaps a room for rent in NYC.

The city doesn’t provide the cheapest rates for real estate, but you can find something comfortable that suits your budget with a little bit of patience.

  1. Target Your Preferred Area

NYC is a big area, and while you have many great transportation options in the city, it doesn’t hurt to begin your search in places you’d prefer to live in, such as close to your school. Start small, and then pull back your search to other areas to better understand your options.

  1. Research and Compare

As you begin to search for accommodation, create a list of a few options and start comparing them before deciding. Weigh the pros and cons of each listing in terms of price, location, amenities, and other essential factors to honestly know you’re making an informed decision.

Where Can You Find Student Housing in NYC?

So, where can you find NYC rental listings? Well, a bunch of different places!

Most students start looking for rentals right on their University campus, so definitely check out your school’s accommodation options, such as its dorm or even a student accommodation tool.

If you can’t find an apartment there, you have many other options:

  • Real estate sites like Zillow
  • Personal ad sites
  • Online directories
  • Social media groups for rentals, etc.
