During the summer months, a Graduate Housing Coordinator is available to assist students and provide information about housing resources available in Westchester County and New York City. The coordinator, in cooperation with the undergraduate housing office, maintains housing lists for graduate students, composed primarily of notices from landlords and individuals looking for roommates. The coordinator also facilitates housing "matches" within the graduate student community, and sends a questionnaire to students interested in being put in touch with potential Sarah Lawrence roommates.

Many students opt to live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Woodlawn and Riverdale sections of the Bronx. Manhattan rents are generally very high, but you can certainly find something, especially if you are willing to share an apartment. Brooklyn and Queens typically have cheaper rents than Manhattan, though the commute on public transportation from these boroughs will take an hour or longer. Woodlawn and Riverdale often have lower rents than Manhattan and Westchester and are only a 10- to 15-minute drive from Sarah Lawrence.
The student populations of each of Sarah Lawrence’s graduate programs have different concerns and preferences when it comes to housing. The amount of on-campus time demanded by each program varies, and is something to consider when looking for housing. Students unfamiliar with Lower Westchester County are strongly advised to visit the area before beginning their housing search.
During the summer, the Graduate Housing Coordinator is available to assist in locating housing. Call Slonim House at (914) 395-2371 to speak with the Graduate Housing Coordinator.
