New York Institute of Technology Housing and Nearby Apartments


At New York Institute of Technology Old Westbury, student housing is not technically located on campus, but the school's five residence halls here on Long Island are located just a short drive away. For those students without cars--frankly, a rarity here in the suburbs--a free shuttle bus also goes back and forth between the dorms and the campus all day every day. Two of the NYIT Old Westbury residences, King Hall and Anthony Hall, are designed for First Year Experience students; two are reserved for upper-class students (Roosevelt and Bolivar Halls), and the fifth, Kennedy Hall, is only for upper-class undergraduates majoring in life-sciences, or graduate students studying the same. The New York Institute of Technology is primarily a commuter school, however, with only about 10% of undergraduates living in on-campus housing. Plus, except for a handful of Master's candidates in Kennedy Hall, very few of the institutions nearly 4,000 graduate students are able to live in college-owned housing. So for help finding NYIT off-campus housing, whether on Long Island or in New York City, you might want to start with the constantly updated listings here on Urban Edge. You'll find rental apartments near the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses, many of which are offered directly to you by the building's owner. That means those listings are "no fee."

About New York Institute of Technology

The New York Institute of Technology has campuses all over the world--in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, for example, and in Vancouver, Canada, and Nanjing, China--but the core schools are located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, in between Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center; and on Long Island's lovely North Fork, in the village of Old Westbury. There is also a large NYIT campus in the Suffolk County hamlet of Central Islip, complete with on-campus residence halls and extensive sports and fitness facilities, for the school's well-regarded Vocational Independence Program, which is committed to students with special needs. The NYIT Manhattan campus is spread out over five buildings on the Upper West Side, and offers classes in all of the university's major schools, including the School of Architecture and Design, the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Management, the School of Health Professions, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Osteopathic Medicine. There is NYIT Manhattan college-run housing available for students, three residence halls that, although they are some distance from the campus itself, are all on the west side of Manhattan--in Chelsea, on the Upper West Side, and in Harlem--and so are an easy subway or bus ride away from your classes. As convenient as it for some people to have the New York Institute of Technology be committed to maintaining and expanding its Manhattan presence, it is the NYIT Old Westbury campus, in Suffolk County, that forms the heart of the institution. Located here since 1965, when the school acquired the one-time estate of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, (and has since tacked on other, adjoining estates), NYIT Old Westbury is both the institution's largest campus in terms of physical size, clocking in at over 100 landscaped and wooded acres, and it boasts the greatest number of students, who come to Long Island to pursue one of NYIT's more than 90 undergraduate, graduate, and medical degrees.
