SAE Institute New York will welcome you into a diverse, multi-cultural environment. Our student body ranges from New York residents and out-of-state American students to international students from several continents. New York City has been known as a world cultural melting pot, and this is an aspect that SAE New York is proud to embody in its educational facility.
While SAE New York does not offer campus housing, we do have some solid recommendations to aid in your search:
studenthousing.org - an educational housing service website that makes the search relatively easy, with buildings scattered throughout New York; the facilities offer convenient locations, rooms that come fully furnished, as well as 24-hour security
craigslist.org - this is a more open-ended forum for searching; you can often find better bargains, while searching in specific neighborhoods, or for apartments that already have inhabitants but are in need of a roommate
Manhattan can be expensive, so exploring other boroughs is often wise and beneficial in reducing the cost of living. The New York MTA is quite reliable, so a commute from another borough (i.e. Brooklyn or Queens) is feasible and affordable. Fortunately, the SAE New York campus is centrally located in Herald Square, in close proximity to many of the major public transportation routes, in addition to Penn Station, the Port Authority Bus Terminal and PATH.
Monthly passes are available for public transit, which is another money saver.

Experience New York City
Restaurants - You could literally eat every meal of every day in a different restaurant and still not hit all the places you want to in NYC. That said, be adventurous and try new things. For instance, Shake Shack (located in Madison Sq. Park) will offer you delicious burgers and shakes to enjoy on the surrounding park benches. You can even venture to the Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria and sample some delicious brews and bratwurst. The adventure is yours for the taking!
Museums - The perfect rainy day remedy...NYC offers quite an array of museums, ranging from the famed Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Natural History Museum to the more specific Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Muesum and American Folk Art Museum. Regardless of your interests, there is certainly a museum that will intrigue you.
Concerts - New York City is littered with venues, from the smaller, more intimate Bowery Poetry Club to the large-scale, famed Madison Square Garden.
Parks - From Central Park to Prospect Park and many other stations of greenery in between, who is to say New York is all mortar and cement? Enjoy picnics, shows, casual sports and more...or just a walk in the park!
Shows - Broadway and Off-Broadway both offer copious amount of talent on the stage, from musicals to more dramatic monologues. Be sure to take advantage of the shows being offered when you are in town - chances are you will leave with either tear stains from deep-seated emotional outbursts, or a sore throat from singing along with a vibrant cast.
