Lodging

What are my options for lodging in New York City during the Summer Intensives? 

As Summer Intensives registrants, you are free to make your own lodging arrangements.

To accommodate those who would like pre-arranged housing, we have reserved a small block of rooms at The Towers for our Summer Intensives students on a first-come, first-serve basis at an additional price of $925 for two weeks. Please indicate in your application if you’d like to stay at The Towers. Space is limited.

What are The Towers?

towersThe Towers is a residential building that is part of the City University of New York (CUNY). It serves to house students during the school year and is offered up to visitors during the summer. It is located on the campus of The City College Of New York, a quick 20-minute subway ride to Times Square on the A train.

What are the rooms like?

We have reserved double rooms, which means you will be sharing with another person of your gender who is also enrolled in the program. Each double room is served by an accompanying full bathroom.

Is the price of lodging included in my tuition?

No. If you’d like to stay at The Towers, you will need to pay an extra $925 for every two week session. You will be able to choose the option for housing in The Towers when completing your application.

Anything else I should know?

Yes, Although each two-bedroom suite includes a small kitchen area, the rooms are not outfitted with kitchen utensils (no plates, silverware, pots, pans, etc.). Please plan to bring those with you or plan to buy them in New York City. Towels and bed linens ARE provided.

When can we move in to The Towers?

You are permitted to check-in in the Sunday before your Summer Intensive course begins and must check-out the Saturday after the workshop ends.
