NYP housing

  1. 0
    Hello everyone,

    I have been combing through many threads about NYP housing but they are a couple of years old. I am a recent hire at Columbia and am wondering what the NYP employment housing is like. I understand there is a long wait list, but can someone please tell me the average cost of a studio or one bedroom apartment at NYP? Do they allow pets? I have one small dog. Is it a traditional year-long lease or month by month?

    My lease in Brooklyn is done in a few months and I might stay but I was just curious if NYP housing rent is any more affordable than the usual Manhattan rent. I would like to weigh the pros and cons.

    I appreciate any advice. Thanks!

    I happen to know several people who live in NYP housing, but at the Cornell campus, not Columbia. The rent is definitely more affordable than comparable studios in the area. I would assume that up at Columbia it would also be a good deal - that is the appeal of it. However, I don't know any specifics about the Columbia housing. Cornell's housing does have buildings that allow pets.

    I'm eager to learn more, too. The website showed nice pictures and descriptions of all the buildings, but nothing about prices (go figure.)

    I currently live on York Ave in the 80s and love it....when my lease is up in the summer I'll consider a studio in Cornell housing.

    I have several friends who live in Columbia housing. Their studios start at around $1200 and up, depending on whether there's an elevator or laundry in the building. They do allow pets (certain breeds) and it's month to month.
