The ICE student housing program helps you find safe, comfortable and convenient student housing in some of New York City's most exciting and vibrant neighborhoods.

With the assistance of the ICE student housing program, you can focus your energy on your studies and career goals, instead of an apartment search. 

ICE works with third-party housing vendors to coordinate housing options for all lifestyles, from dorms to apartments to homestays. In many instances, we have pre-negotiated rent, fully furnished and unfurnished rooms and apartments, utilities, wifi and short-term lease options. Enjoy full kitchen access and a variety of other amenities like laundry, gym and more. Plus, if your permanent home address is over 100 miles from ICE's New York campus, you can receive up to a $2,500 discount off tuition to defray relocation costs.

There's no better place to launch your culinary or hospitality career. Our housing options offer the opportunity to live in New York's best neighborhoods, all with easy transportation to ICE. Our campus is conveniently located in walking distance to almost all train, bus and ferry lines.
