NYC
Make yourself at home in the heart of the fashion world.

Nothing compares to life in New York City. It's colorful, fast-paced, and never dull. 

You can choose to make your home away from home in student housing arranged through LIM, or strike out on your own to find a place that fits your individual needs.

In the 2022-2023 academic year, LIM will offer housing to students at the New Yorker residence on West 34th Street and 8th Ave. Scroll down for more details.

Housing Overview - The New Yorker

Located in the heart of the hustle-and-bustle of Midtown West (34th Street and 8th Ave.), the New Yorker student residence is run by Educational Housing Services (EHS).

The New Yorker is steps from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, and a short walk from Manhattan's famed Chelsea neighborhood. Hudson Yards, home to 100+ shops, culinary experiences and cultural institutions, is also a few blocks away. 

The New Yorker offers single and double rooms with private bathrooms, as well as a common kitchen and laundry room.

LIM’s Fifth Avenue building is approximately a 20-minute walk from The New Yorker and it takes approximately 30 minutes to walk to Maxwell Hall.
