Pace University Housing and Nearby Apartments


Your Pace University housing options, whether on campus or off campus, or for undergraduate or graduate students, will vary greatly, depending upon which of the three campuses you will be taking the majority (or all) of your classes. There is housing available in all three locations: in downtown Manhattan, near the Financial District, anchored by Pace Plaza; and in Westchester County, in both Pleasantville-Briarcliff and in White Plains, which is about 30 minutes by train from Grand Central. Housing is available for most students at most of the University's many different degree programs and schools.

Pace Law School Housing

Housing for single students at Pace Law School in White Plains is limited to Dannat Hall, a five-story building filled with smallish furnished rooms (full-sized bed, desk, dresser, table and chairs, bookshelves and closet space, MicroFridge, among other things) and required participation in the meal plan. Dannat Hall is an excellent option if you're looking for an instant community of fellow students. For Pace Law School off-campus housing, there are plenty of rental apartments on the market in the White Plains area. The housing office will have some leads for nearby apartments, or you can search for a (preferably no fee) rental on your own, through websites such as Urban Edge.

Pace Pleasantville-Briarcliff Campus Housing

Pace University housing at the Pleasantville-Briarcliff campus, which includes the renowned environmental studies program at the Environmental Center, is more varied, with seven different dorms in different styles for undergraduate and graduate students. Housing, both within the two adjacent campuses at this location, as well as in nearby off-campus housing, are all in a suburban or even fairly wooded setting, and about 45 minutes from Manhattan by the Metro North train.

On and Off Campus Housing in NYC

Housing for Pace University students at the Manhattan location come in five separate university-owned and/or –maintained buildings, three in the Financial District at or near Pace Plaza, two in right-across-the-river Brooklyn Heights. Housing in either neighborhood puts students right in the thick of the New York City experience. The Financial District has become much more of residential community over the past couple of decades, and more and more bars, restaurants, stores and services have followed. Of course, given that the neighborhood is also a daily destination for tens of thousands of workers, nearly every subway line, to take you nearly everywhere in town, is within easy walking distance. The housing in Brooklyn Heights is also in a terrific location, both because of the beautiful, historic community itself and the surrounding neighborhoods of DUMBO and Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens, home to one the greatest concentrations of good restaurants in the city. And the Brooklyn Heights location is also right near multiple subway lines, making it easy to get into Manhattan, or elsewhere in Brooklyn. Many of the Brooklyn rental apartments you'll find on Urban Edge, even those not in Brooklyn Heights, are excellent options for students seeking off campus housing.
