HOUSING ASSIGNMENTS:  The managing agent will make every effort to accommodate as many housing requests as possible.  In addition to requesting a certain size apartment, you may request a specific roommate or have a roommate assigned to you.  In general, housing will first be assigned to students whose permanent residence is outside the greater New York metropolitan area.  The Law School reserves the right to determine the priority for the assignment of housing.  We encourage students to submit an application as early as possible.

Students denied housing due to space limitations will be able to place their names on a waiting list.

Students who are admitted to the Law School after the May 1 deadline will be eligible to apply for housing.  Assignments will be made on a space available basis.  If no space is available, students will have the option of placing their names on a waiting list.

Housing deposits will be refunded to students who do not receive a housing assignment.

Finding Off-Campus Accommodations

Many students find housing in Greenwich Village, Tribeca, SoHo, and other neighborhoods near the Cardozo campus. The school is conveniently accessible to many bus and subway lines, and is a short subway or bus ride to Penn Station and Grand Central Station. Students can commute easily from other New York neighborhoods where rents are relatively inexpensive. The Housing in New York Guide provides information regarding New York City's various neighborhoods and tips on finding an apartment in the metropolitan area.  

In Need of an Apartment or Roommate?

Members of the Cardozo community may list their available apartments and/or interest in finding a roommate by joining their entering-class Facebook group, which students will be invited to join in the spring before they start law school.
