Housing Registry

To assist students with finding non-NYU housing, the Center for Student Life works with a third party vendor, The Housing Registry, to aid in your housing and roommate search. The Housing Registry search features are only available to the NYU community through the use of their NYU email address.

This database contains apartments and rooms for rent, as well as a roommate registry. Brokers and non-members of the University Community are invited to post a listing on the Housing Registry as long as the guidelines are followed.

Please submit any questions or technical issues via the Help option on the Housing Registry site.

Apartment Search Links

We realize searching for an apartment in New York City takes tremendous effort and time. Below, we have compiled a list of websites that will assist you in your apartment search. These websites will help you get acquainted with what type of apartment options are being advertised, as well as information on costs, amenities, and the local area. These sites also allow you to search for rentals that meet your specific requirements, and to organize your search along the way.

See Step 10 for short-term  or speciality options which may have a lower cost than traditional hotels.
