These apartments are located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The majority of the building residents are members of the Fordham community (graduate students, faculty, and staff). There is however no Fordham sponsored accommodations for spouses or families. There is onsite laundry and a concierge desk in the lobby. The fee for the apartment is billed at the beginning of each semester. Residents are responsible for setting up and paying for electricity, cable, internet, and phone.
