Hi

I'm going to be a student in Manhattan for 8 months....How much money will I need (approximately) for accommodation, food etc? I'd like to rent a decent one bedroom apartment- will this cost a fortune?

What University in NYC will you be attending? Doesn't your school set something up so you could live in a dorm or split a room with other people from your Uni?

Miss Adelaide: I am not from NY. But you should try local papers and www.craigslist.org and you can click on NY. But also.. most universities have housing services where they have ads posted for cheaper housing or student housing... and even roommate services. Do a google search with the name of the university and housing services or campus housing.... or something like that. It will usually direct you to a website from the university or another university near by. Good luck.

Thanks guys


I'll be a student at the New York Film Academy, not university, so I have to rent privately. So....do you think $16000 would be enough for accommodation?

The Academy has a housing coordinator. The website claims they will help students find a place within walking distance. Have you tried that yet?

With two locations:

The New York Film Academy's film school has two facilities in Manhattan: our headquarters overlooking Union Square Park in the historic Tammany Hall building on Park Avenue, and our new facility located in the heart of SoHo at Prince Street and Broadway. The Academy's film schools and acting schools are easily accessible to the rest of the city. A short walk takes the student into the neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, Tribeca, Little Italy or Times Square. A twenty-minute train ride brings the student to the door steps of Columbia University and Harlem, or Chinatown, Coney Island, Central Park, and the Brooklyn Bridge. It provides a haven from the hustle, and at the same time gives the student a springboard straight into the thick of the city's life.

One in the 14th Street area (Union Sq. Park) you might try to find housing in the East Village, Grammercy Park, for walking.

The SoHo site is a good, healthy walk from the Union Sq. facility, but on pleasant days very do-able. You might look for housing in SoHo proper, the West Village, the Lower East Side, the East Village -- for walking.

You can also look in the boroughs, and take the subway to either location.

I would estimate a rental of approx. 1200-1800 per month to be on the safe side, or you might be able to find a room-mate also attending the school.

You'll really need to look hard for a decent 1 bedroom in that price range. Most likely it won't be in Manhattan.
