Fordham Housing

A limited number of dorm rooms at the Lincoln Center campus are available to LLM, MSL, and SJD students in McMahon Hall, which houses both undergraduate and graduate students. The Residential Life Office makes housing assignments on a "first come, first served" basis. For applications and information, visit the Law Student Housing website.

Off-Campus Housing

Most students live off-campus, either in Manhattan or in other boroughs of New York City or in New Jersey.  An excellent public transportation network makes it easy to travel into and within New York City.  

Options and resources for housing unrelated to Fordham are linked below.  Students should be cautious when using these websites to avoid scams, particularly if they are not present in New York to view an apartment before committing to it.

Note that many apartments in New York are only available through brokers who charge fees (often equivalent to one month's rent or 15% of a one-year lease) for connecting potential renters with apartments. For students interested in using a broker to locate an apartment, some reputable firms include Prudential Douglas Elliman (http://www.elliman.com/), Citi-Habitats (http://www.citi-habitats.com) and Corcoran Group (http://www.corcoran.com).
