fashionicon, yeah I totally know..it is pretty expensive there. I actually found a studio on the Upper East Side for 1150 a month so I'm really interested in that. I found it on www.nycdwellers.com. Great place when looking for a studio or apartment in the city.

I'll have to look into the burg, haven't done much research on areas outside of the city. I'd really like to live in the city and experience that. Thanks!

Ciao

anyone from NYU?
Hi everyone! I'm interning this summer in NYC and I'm planning on staying at NYU summer housing. Can anyone suggest which halls are good? I wanna stay in an apartment style and I believe these are the choices I have: coral towers, lafayette street residence, third ave. north, water street and second street. Would really2 appreciate any inputs from NYU students. And also, which of the above halls are nearest to 60 east, 42nd street? Thanks so much in advance!

How much is the Brandon Residence per week? I'm at the Webster and it's US$240.

your best bet for montreal would probably be craigslist or classifieds on the mcgill university website http://www.mcgill.ca/classified/
a lot of students sublet their places for the summer!~ hope that helps

and for toronto i would say check out the classified ads or student housing pages for the universities/colleges in toronto

Thanks diorable that's not bad either! Pity that it's so far up though, but I may consider staying there when I come back to New York You have to let us know how it is if you do end up staying there!

Most definitely ! Although I just called this afternoon and they said they were behind schedule and that I needed to call back in a week to see if I get a room for the summer . Hopefully they'll be on schedule by next week because otherwise I'll need to apply to NYU housing. The $50 nonrefundable fee for the Brandon hopefully won't go to waste and I'll get accepted .

diorable I'm sure it'll be fine. I was so stressed when I had to apply for the Webster but it was a breeze. Back then I only knew about the Webster.

Are there any other similar places to the Webster and the Brandon in other cities, say Paris?

Don't know about Paris but I don't think there's anything considerable in London. I mean you might have people rent room's for the rez's from the Uni of London schools but I've never heard of people doing that. Plus they don't have that much rez space available. Most people I know, just look for short term lets off gumtree (though in London, this is mostly occupied by Aussies and Saffa's - good if your one of them, not so great if you're not) and other local websites.

Hey just to jump in and say that a lot of the London universities do open up their halls for the holidays. I stayed in some LSE accomodation for a week that was really reasonably priced.
