Finding Off-Campus Accommodations

Many students find housing in Greenwich Village, Tribeca, SoHo, and other neighborhoods near the Cardozo campus. The school is conveniently accessible to many bus and subway lines, and is a short subway or bus ride to Penn Station and Grand Central Station. Students can commute easily from other New York neighborhoods where rents are relatively inexpensive.
Additionally, there are organizations in New York City that specialize in providing temporary or long-term housing to students and interns.  Some of these resources are listed below.
