Summer Analyst Housing

Hey guys,

I am a sophomore, that has an offer at a BB in the investment banking division (think DB, BAML, Citi or Barclays).

I am looking for a roommate for this summer, that is preferably not at my bank and is also working in banking. Anyone looking? Hoping for NYU dorms, but that seems to be a tough one to get.

I would advice against NYU dorms (cost and comfort/cleanliness).

Sophomore in same boat, but living with someone I lived with last summer when I was a freshman interning with a non-profit. Good luck on the search!

Why? Nothing wrong with NYU dorms. Depending which dorm, you can get a double for less than $250 a week and that comes with a kitchen. If you want a single its $400 a week. Those are ridiculously cheap prices. As far as comfort, they are fine. Better than your average state school dorm for sure. Cleanliness-well that's on you.

Don't get why people shit on NYU dorms.

Any advice on places to live?

@plit23 ; I had a friend live in NYU dorm last summer. Visited - it was awful. One of the dingiest dorms I've ever seen and he was paying $5000 for the summer. The halls were filthy and the places were just dark and dingy. For the price you can do a lot better.

NYU will be the most expensive and not the best. Some local colleges also will sublet for the summer and if you look around (Google colleges in the area) you can find a great deal. Cleanliness/comfort is questionable though. Dorms might be the best choice if you're looking for another banker buddy to room with.

It depends on what you want. Convenience wise, NYU trumps. I'm actually staying in Williamsburg for $1200 a month in a two bedroom with nice furniture/neighborhood. Some people would say, "Brooklyn as an analyst, no way!" but I don't mind the train ride to commute. I used a website called NY Habitat and looked into apartment shares. I was obviously on an insanely limited budget last summer working for a non-profit so my options were limited. However, that place is an agency and will provide legal documentation/vet both parties before anything is agreed upon for a fee. Brokers fees are common for this route because it is "safer" than CL. I roomed with a writer who was a little older than me, but I got to meet his social circle and had many dinner parties (including a rooftop party with a diplomat). This arrangement gave me a better NYC experience than just a dorm, but isn't for everyone.

It depends on where you're working too...Citi is FiDi and a lot of nice places (doorman condos) can be found on CL for decent prices. Of Course if you do CL you have to be super careful. Lots of scams, I was almost duped twice. Always search any phone numbers given to you by a poster and ask for name and other important information. Never send money sight unseen.

Search for apartment shares online and colleges to get best results. Advise against CL for the most part.

Jan 17, 2015

When it comes to convenience, very little beats NYU. However, make sure you register early if you want some of the better dorms. The biggest issue with NYU is the terrible guest policy, RAs, and having to swipe in at the entrance. As for other colleges, I know some people have done the New School, which didn't seem too bad, and FIT.

I tried doing Craigslist, but the broker fees required with an apartment I'd be using for 10 weeks just did not make sense. Also keep in mind that you should probably check out the apartments you're renting in person before signing the papers.

Jan 17, 2015

I am doing a single at the New School's stuy-park location (right next to Union Square). It is $3,750. Sign up is Feb. 16th, and it is pretty competitive so you need to apply same-day. If anyone wants to be roomates as there are typically 2-3 singles in a apartment, let me know.

Jan 17, 2015

Check out AirBnb my man. Found some awesome results there especially if you can find 2-3 guys to live with you.

lived in jersey and it was cheap af my sophomore year

EHS housing isnt that bad. Stayed at the marymount manhattan location last summer as an SA

Jan 29, 2015

I stayed at the New Yorker location the summer of '13 and can vouch for them as well. Great organisation, very good at fixing any issues as well.

Jan 29, 2015

You should've been given someone to act as your point of contact for questions. Ask that person about a rental bulletin.

Many companies (Not just banks) the size of BBs have a bulletin where the employees post searches for roommates, lease takeovers, subleases, etc. Now normally you wouldn't be given access until you officially start, but if your point of contact can send you some of the listings, it'd be an excellent place to find housing.

You might also find something similar on Facebook.

Jan 29, 2015

My friend stayed in John Jay's housing for the summer, which was on one of a few floors in a midtown hotel that were converted into dorms (as in the rest of the building and lobby still function as a hotel). It was a triple with two bathrooms and as far as I know it wasn't too expensive and the location was super convenient.

Jan 29, 2015

NYU housing should be cheaper than apartments you get on your own. I lived in the Water Street dorms, which I think were fairly popular. Rent was ~$1100/month, compared to $1500-1600 I paid for my apartment full time and that's in a convert. NYU housing can also be good from a social perspective since many of the other interns will be there and people are always meeting downstairs to go out, etc.

If you do NYU housing, definitely live in Gramercy if you can. It's probably a little more expensive, but if you can somehow snag a corner room it's much better than anything else NYU offers.

Jan 29, 2015

I lived at Broome Street NYU dorm, and I absolutely loved my summer. It was a bit expensive (>housing bonus they give you), but its literally littered with other interns (girl next to me was GS securities...and a smokeshow). Awesome location and nightlife, free wifi etc (although you won't really be there...). Would definitely recommend it

That said, my buddies sublet from craigslist and ended up saving a lot of money

Jan 29, 2015

I second NYU Broome....good spot to be an intern and pretty cheap compared to other 'student housing special' BS deals. If not Broome, just be sure to get into one with air conditioning and an easy commute to work.

Jan 29, 2015

I lived in 13th street dorm at NYU - good location, cheap rent. slowest fucking elevator in the city though. NYU is cheap and generally in good proximity to bars and restaurants. Getting someone up there after hours is a bitch though as they have to sign in, give iD, etc.

Jan 29, 2015

Thanks for all the responses. I just checked the NYU website and the only available dorms (with air conditioning and open to non-NYU students) are:
- Broome Street
- Carlyle Court
- Coral Towers
- Greenwich Hotel
- Lafayette Street
- Third North

The most important things for me are:
1. Relative proximity to the city (or central point/ easy commute anywhere to Manhattan)
2. Decent condition (no rodents, bugs, bedbugs etc)
3. Good nightlife during weekends?
4. Anything else I missed???

Jan 29, 2015

Carlyle is right on Union Square (great area as well; I lived there for two years during school); one express stop to Brooklyn Bridge/FiDi, etc. I'd recommend that dorm unapologetically for the location alone. Plus it's always good to make a deal with the other interns to see who's living where.

Take my advice: once you have a SA offer in NYC and you know you want to do NYU housing, don't dick around. Apply ASAP. If you don't (like me...idiot) you'll end up in non-air-conditioned Brittany Hall. Good location, but that's about it. They make you get a dining plan (worthless) but when you're sweating your ass off in a triple with no A/C during the few hours you're not at work, you'll be hating every minute of your life.

Other options to consider (which might be nicer) are dorms at the New School and FIT. Don't even waste your time with Columbia, although in retrospect I might have preferred a single A/C unit in Morningside Heights than a non-A/C triple in the Village...

Jan 29, 2015

I lived in Lafayette one summer and loved it. Pretty big rooms, 2 bathrooms for 4 people, good location (get yellow and green lines 2 blocks away), and pretty cheap food. It's in Chinatown/Tribeca so not very "happening" but good food within walking distance in SoHo and you can get most places in Manhattan with the green and yellow.

Jan 29, 2015

how did you get an SA offer already, are you going abroad in the spring?

Jan 29, 2015

does anyone know when we're supposed to know whether to find housing for ourselves? i heard ML last year got their summers to live together in the same place

Jan 29, 2015

Try studenthousing.com or.org....they work out of the george washington hotel on 23rd and lex. You get your own room there.

Jan 29, 2015

I am not going abroad and I would prefer not to say which BB I accepted, but through the various interviews I have met quite a few juniors, along with myself, already with SA offers. I have met people already with Lehman, UBS, ML, and MS summer analyst offers. I have heard that Lehman gave out some offers in early December also. I think most banks fast track some kids that are obviously good candidates and have contacts that back them heavily at the BB they apply to.

It is also highly inefficient for the banks to start interviewing once the deadline passes. Starting interviews and giving out offers over time allows them to judge how many offers and interviews they need to keep giving out based on how many earlier offers are being accepted.

Anyone have opinions for the housing for the firms in the park avenue/midtown area?

Jan 29, 2015

Hi I go to NYU.

For Down town area, go with Water Street dorm, its ~10 minutes from Wall Street

for Mid town Area you have several choices. The Union Square Dorms (14th streetish) are best: Carlyle, Palladium, UHall, Coral

26th street is a little closers to mid town, but a worser dorm. Personally I'd choose Palladium or Carlyle, they are great dorms and right by the 456 nrw subday. Last summer I lived in Carlyle and took the 6 to work on 52nd and madison, took less than 20 minutes.

Jan 29, 2015

how much is rent at these NYC dorms? ballpark...

Jan 29, 2015

Dabear,

Go to studenthousing.org and look for marymount building on 55th between 2nd and 3rd. Easy walk to all Park Ave offices and its full of SA and fashion magazine girls. Around 1300 a month for a quad, but location cannot be beat.

Jan 29, 2015

I also have already accepted SA with midtown BB. Last year i lived with the studenthousing.org people and it was a good experience but by the looks of things on NYUs site NYU is a lot cheaper. Im planning to live in Union Square b/c the subway stop there has trains to take you just about anywhere easily. Its also a very cool/busy place and there are a lot of good shops and what not in the area. I found myself going to USquare a lot last year for random stuff.

Jan 29, 2015

its 250 for a double or triple and 350 for a single for the apartments at NYU

Jan 29, 2015

Do a lot of interns stay in NYU housing?

I'm debating whether to apply there, or go for somewhere a bit closer to work (right around Rockefeller Plaza).

I do have a bunch of friends staying in the city for next summer, but it would be nice to meet some new people. And the East Village is an area IMO

Jan 29, 2015

Just submitted my app. I really hope i get in the water street location that will be very convienant. Very close to the office.

Your firms didn't have reserved housing?

How quick do the NYU dorms fill up. I applied yesterday (2/6) for Palladium as it is cloer to the office. I wonder what the odds are I will get it seeing as NYU housing apps opened up Tuesday.

Jan 29, 2015

How quick do dorms fill? I applied yesterday for Palladium (the second day you were allowed to apply), and I am wondering the chances I get my first pick. I picked Water St. second but I heard that fills the fastest.

Jan 29, 2015

What are the chances of getting a suite/roommate with some cool people? I know I won't be there most of the time, but it'd be nice to meet and go out with new people outside of my friends in the city already.

Is this rhetorical or are you serious?

Jan 29, 2015

If you sign up on the fisrt day for NYU summer housing, what are the odds of getting your first choice? I chose Palladium as it is close to train to get to midtown.

Jan 29, 2015

I don't really know. They give first preference to kids enrolled in the summer trimester , then other NYU students, then non affiliated. Lots of rooms in palladium though. I would say good chances. If you can't do that do carlyle (if it is available).

Jan 29, 2015

I can't sign up for housing until a week from now. I'd like to live in Palladium or University Hall. Do I stand a chance?

Jan 29, 2015

do any of you have internships that last beyond the 9th, which is the last day of nyu summer housing?

that's really annoying...studenthousing.org is much more expensive...

Jan 29, 2015

i guess theres no way im getting nyu housing; i know studenthousing.org has dorms near the wall street area. any other housing services near wall street? thanks

Jan 29, 2015

Check out new school stuy-town. Cheaper for a single, newly renovated, and near union square subway stop. The application is opening this weekend, and I will be singing up there.

Jan 29, 2015

curious as well.

Jan 29, 2015

NYU is fine but they force you to buy the damn dining plan. You are never going to eat there. Even still, it is a bargain for a single.

Jan 29, 2015

Is this option still worth a shot if they have only random roommate doubles left? I got my SA internship pretty late in the game so I'm in a bit of a rush to find housing. From the midwest and pretty much no one from my school goes to nyc plus I'm working in a smaller office so I want to have a chance to meet people. I was looking at subletting a single but it's pretty pricey and I'd imagine it'd be a lonelier experience.

Jan 29, 2015

Freshmeat...... i mean freshman yeah i forgot all about that whole part of living in a dorm. But not even that will make up for not having air conditioning im afraid.

IBDilo26386:

There have been a few posts that touched on this, but none specifically for it. Which dorm is your NYU Summer Housing assignment for?

Mine is for Brittany Hall. I looked for some info online and found it is a Freshman dorm. I find my situation to be rather funny, as I imagine myself, knowing what I know now, living in the Freshman dorms again haha.

I'm doubting that it will be an all Freshman dorm in the summer, but a guy can wish, right?

Anyway, where are you all located? Also, is there anyway we can find out who our roommates are?

I just found out this morning, so i guess there's still hope for some people. It's not the most ideal dorm for working mid-town, but at least its A/C.

Jan 29, 2015

Water Street. Requested it as my first choice even though it's hella far from midtown because it supposedly has the largest rooms.

Jan 29, 2015

but trying to change it..
i don't know isnt it too far?

Jan 29, 2015

location from the office should be the only thing that really matters to you. You will be in the office so much, especially if doing IBD, and when you get home you will pass out regardless of how hot/cold it is in the room. I lived at home last summer and after my long commute to my office and back, I came home and passed out, and nothing could wake me up until my 5am alarm clock.

Jan 29, 2015

Requested a building change to ANY air conditioned buildings. Was denied. Bullshit.

This is through EHS. I don't think they had anything in FiDi last summer, but they did have something right over the Brooklyn bridge. (But... it's in Brooklyn.)

Jan 29, 2015

I'd sublet an apartment elsewhere (not sure if cheaper than EHS). You'd get actual freedom. EHS is pretty strict.

Jan 29, 2015

Do a sublet, these places a horribly overpriced. You should be able to pick up a studio flex for $2500 a month that will house 2 people

i did a summer at nyu lafayette it's right next to a homeless shelter but other than that pretty decent place. there's a pretty good bar called whiskey tavern a few mins walk from there cute ass ladies.

Jan 29, 2015

Thanks for the color orange!

Anybody stayed at EHS or anywhere in FiDi?

Jan 29, 2015

Most big banks have rooms reserved at NYU. Those are ok. If you can, look for a short term sublet in FiDi - I found a great, reasonably priced room in a 3br apartment in a very nice FiDi high rise with some fun roommates.

Jan 29, 2015

Pace is a nice location down there, but they make you switch rooms halfway through the summer. Both buildingsbarebin fidi, but not sure if you want to worry about the logistics

I found my summer housing using Uloop last summer. It has a section specifically for subletting and you just have to filter by school. Like there's one for NYU, for example.

Jan 29, 2015

Although I may have come off as a douche on your last post that was my honest opinion of that post only; good luck on your gig, it all tends to work out in the end.

Anyway, "Morningside" i.e. Columbia area is not that bad a location, a bit of a commute to midtown but manageable if you don't have other choices. Problem is that many places labeled Morningside are actually Harlem, and while some parts of Harlem aren't necessarily as bad as their reputation, I still don't like living in that area for a number of reasons. Plus, your commute will be longer. The guideline is pretty much anything above 118 St. on the west side or 110th on the east side is harlem. Upper West Side in general is a perfectly fine place to be. A lot of people go for places in Gramercy/Murray Hill so check those out. With your budget you shouldn't have TOO much trouble finding a place. Rule of thumb is if you see something WAY too cheap looking, it's probably either spam or not in the neighborhood it's labeled as.

Hi guys,

Please don't take into account my other thread while helping me on this one. I need housing for the summer - will be working in Midtown.

I don't know anything about NYC since I am from California so is there any places I should avoid?

I see really cheap sublets in the Upper West Side/Harlem/Morningside - are those bad areas?

Where should I focus my search with a 1000-1400 budget?

Which part of Midtown do you work? If it is on the East Side then you might want to take a look at Astoria, Queens. With your budget you can pretty much pick and choose whatever place you want there. It is a diverse neighborhood with excellent Greek cuisine, the famous Biergarden and Kaufman film Studios where many recent Hollywood blockbusters are filmed. The neighborhood is home to many single young professionals. For a young single person, Astoria is a much more preferable location than Morning Height/Harlem or even the Upper West Side proper.
It is also a fairly easy commute into Midtown East.

Jan 29, 2015

Second to Astoria. Manhattan real estate market is on fire right now. You will have an EXTREMELY tough time getting a place on the island for your budget without a roommate. Even with a roommate getting a 2bed in Manhattan for 2800 is going to be very tough, especially in early summer at the height of the move boom.

nyu, ehs, sublet..

Anyone here looking at NYU for the summer? That's probably where I'm gonna end up but just curious how many other SA's will be housing there. I'd prefer to live near people my own age especially others in finance doing the same thing.

Not in the FiDi, but I stayed at the SVA dorms on 23rd and Lex... and despite what I had heard, it actually wasn't too bad. My office was downtown near Wall street and it took about 20 mins door to door

I know this topic has been covered previously but I'm interested if anyone else has feedback about where to live over the summer.

I'll be working in Midtown and have only been to NYC twice--both times for superdays so I didn't see much.

I looked into the NYU thinh but I heard its like 1500 a month. Isn't that a little pricey for a college dorm room? Also for those who lived at NYU, what did you do about food? I imagine it might be tough to cook something decent w/a communal kitchen and I can't imagine the dining hall is open.

One summer I lived in the New School dorms off Maiden Lane, right across from the Federal Reserve and in the heart of FiDi.... That may be worth looking into, this was 4 years ago so no clue if they still do it.

I'll most likely be living at the New School residence in the financial district. $270/week for a double within a suite, $340 for a single within a suite. I'd rather walk to my internship and take the subway to go out with friends than the other way around.

I just submitted my app for NYU housing! My company has group reservations at Greenwich Hotel which I heard gets maid service? Not too shabby!

Sublet is likely your only and best choice at this point.

padmapper is a good place to look. usually you can find sublets that are furnished as well which is a plus

It's not too late for NYU. There's a loophole. Sign up for a cheap credit-bearing summer course at NYU (NYU SCPS has the cheapest courses I think) and you will be guaranteed housing. Cheapest courses are like $200 I think. This will allow you to live in one of the NYU dorms.

I did this last summer to get into Palladium Hall in like April or May since all the regular NYU dorms were full. I recommend Palladium because it's located in Union Square (tons of awesome bars, restaurants, etc. literally down the street, right next to the Union Square subway station), air-conditioned, has a gym in the basement (weight room, basketball court, pool), and only costs $200/week last time I checked.

Only problem is that you may have to hustle a little to get the housing. I remember having to email/call them a bunch of times to get my NYU ID. But housing is guaranteed (unless they've changed the policy in the last year) for all students registered in a credit-bearing course so they can't deny you housing.

I was in the same boat as you last year and posted on WSO asking the same thing. Then some WSO user told me about this and saved me from the headache of having to find a sublet. This is my way of passing on the legacy...

^What do you do about the actual class? Just drop it?

Jan 29, 2015

I never went to class or did anything about it. I was thinking about dropping the class, but was afraid that I might then get kicked out of the dorm so I didn't. However, I was lazy and never looked into it.

I'm in a similar situation. I don't know if Deutsche has group housing preserved. My BB does, but I didn't know how to switch my original application to include it. A lot of procrastination later and I'm in the same spot you're in. Try to figure out if DB has group housing blocked off at NYU.

Last year I procrastinated and lived in School of Visual Arts, but that may be full too.

look at nyu dorms

Pretty sure dorms have been full for a while.

I went the sublet route and found a nice place 5 blocks from work for a little less than the price for an NYU single.
