How Do I Find An Apartment in New York City?

Unfortunately, Bluedata does not currently provide housing for students.  Resources for housing include online and mobile applications such as Street Easy, Pad Mapper, or websites such as, Zillow, and Craigslist. On these websites, you can filter your search results to find an apartment that suits your budget, ideal location and size, amenities preferences, and even transportation services nearby.  Please use caution when using these applications or websites to avoid scams. Look for apartments that are listed under “No Fees” to avoid paying a broker to help you find a place.


Additionally, there are several ways to find roommates, which makes housing in New York City much more affordable. Websites such as Roomeze and Perfect Stranger make finding compatible roommates easier than ever. You can use filters to find an apartment with your ideal roommate. If you’re looking for an apartment using this method, a representative from the company will help you find the right place for you. They will give you several options, show you the listings in person, and introduce you to the roommates to make sure you all get along. You will share the rent with your new roommates.


If you do not live in NYC, you will want to check out these websites to see what is available. We recommend that you visit any potential apartments before signing a lease. You will want to get a feel for the neighborhood, see if the apartment is clean, and check the noise level of the street. Because you will usually be required to sign a 12-month lease, it is important to find an apartment where you feel safe and comfortable. It is a good idea to stay in a hotel or with friends or family as you look for an apartment.

To begin your apartment search, it’s wise to do some research on friendly neighborhoods for students looking for off-campus housing. Please refer to this website as you narrow down your search. Although Bluedata is located in Manhattan, many students choose to live in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, or New Jersey.
