Housing Resources

While Berklee NYC does not have residence halls and cannot offer on-campus housing to our students, we understand that finding housing in the city can be a significant aspect of your move. We hope this list of housing resources will assist you in navigating the process. As you may know, the cost of living here is higher than most cities in the United States. It is important for all students to accurately assess finances and develop an adequate budget that accounts for rent, utilities (electricity, hot water, heat, phone, internet, cable TV), transportation to and from school, groceries, furniture, and other items.

A helpful note: In New York City, it is common to begin looking for and securing an apartment three to six weeks before your desired move-in date. It is uncommon to get on a lease earlier than one to two months before your desired move-in date.
