While City College does have dorms, it is primarily a commuter school. Most of the student body resides in the four boroughs that surround Manhattan. Students who wish to live on their own should explore apartments in all the boroughs, particularly in the areas adjacent to the college—with roommates the rent can be affordable. If you feel it's undesirable to live above 125th street, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens have plenty of apartments available for rent. Living on your own is difficult if you don't have a job to help pay the bills, so make sure you can afford it before signing a lease. It should be noted that living in downtown Manhattan is probably unrealistic; the rent is higher and there are fewer apartments available. To find an off-campus apartment, you should start reading the classifieds and scouting out places early.
