The ICE student housing program helps you find comfortable and convenient 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 a variety of housing options, from dorms to apartments to co-living. In most instances, we have pre-negotiated rent and short-term lease options consistent with our career program lengths. Students can choose from unfurnished or furnished rooms or apartments, and have access to Wi-Fi, shared or private kitchens, laundry, gyms and more amenities as determined by budget. Students whose permanent home addresses are more than 100 miles from ICE's New York campus can receive a discount of up to $2,500 off of their tuition fees and charges to defray relocation costs.

There's no better place to launch your culinary or hospitality career than New York City. Our housing options offer the opportunity to experience the city's vibrant neighborhoods, all with convenient transportation to ICE. Our campus is in walking distance to many major train, bus and ferry lines.

An increasingly popular option in New York City's expensive real estate market is co-living: private or shared rooms in group homes with all-inclusive pricing. Students are matched with like-minded housemates in fully furnished spaces with utilities, Wi-Fi and community-building amenities included.

Culinary students talk outside their building.


ICE partners with a curator of homestay options, featuring fully furnished, private rooms in the homes of host families — a favorite choice for our international students. This option is optimal for students who would like to immerse themselves in New York's culture by living among the locals.
