MUD NY Campus Housing

MUD is located in downtown Manhattan’s Financial District, steps away from Wall Street, Stone Street eateries and the Battery Park riverfront walk. New York’s Financial District is one of the cleanest, safest and most sought-after neighborhoods in the city. It even has its own Downtown Alliance security guards who assist the NYPD in keeping the area safe, and are always on hand with friendly tips on where to go or what to do in the area.

Metropolitan New York City is one of the most expensive places to live in the United States, and demand is high for available housing. Students need to plan ahead, in order to ensure that they have given themselves enough time to secure acceptable housing. When beginning the housing search, please note that there are many easy and accessible public transportation commuter options to and from the island of Manhattan.

The city, outlying boroughs, and communities across the river in New Jersey are well served by a number of subways, commuter train and commuter bus lines.

MUD has put together a list of resources where you can begin your search for housing options. If you need housing assistance, please speak with MUD’s Student Services Administrator for a list of the most current options available.

For a full list of MUD housing recommendations, request a catalog.

You can also find more community resources at the Financial District’s Downtown Alliance website: www.downtownny.com
