Student Housing

About 60% of CUNY SoM students choose to live near the campus or in the campus dormitory, The Towers. Years 3, 4, and 5 are particularly stressful and it is often beneficial for students to move near campus. The Office of Student Affairs helps students to locate affordable housing in the area, facilitates student sharing of apartments, and offers tenancy information and advice. Students are well aware that this service is not a guarantee of housing, but merely an attempt to streamline the process for them. Attempts are also made to locate funds to help students defray the high cost of housing. Students living in The Towers make their housing arrangements through the appropriate offices within the college.
