Alternative Housing

Students enrolled in non-career programs can refer to this guide for a range of housing options, from a bed-and-breakfast to a short-term lease.

Please note that there are hundreds of housing options in the New York City metro area, and ICC is not responsible for the conditions or the prices of the establishments listed. Anyone seeking alternative housing is advised to exercise common-sense caution when exploring housing options online and otherwise.

To protect yourself:
• Consider using reputable companies as agents. Though this usually involves a fee, it is often a good investment if you cannot travel to New York City.
• If you‘re unable to visit the property before you commit, ask someone you know to view the property for you.
• Never send money based solely on email communications.
• Wire money only via bank-to-bank transfer. Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union or Moneygram, and never send money to a location outside of the U.S.
• Get a signed rental agreement and a copy of the landlord’s ID.
