The off-campus housing is good, but not great. It's New York City, so there are plenty of opportunities to get an apartment. The Manhattan College Residence Life Office, which is on the fourth floor of Thomas Hall, should help students find a place off campus. If not, the easiest thing to do is just find a newspaper and read if there are any apartments available. Students should just pick up one of the major newspapers in New York (The Daily News, New York Post, and New York Times). For listings closer to Manhattan College, students can get the Riverdale Press, which is Riverdale’s own newspaper. Another option is for students to walk around the Riverdale area and ask if there are any apartments available. However, this could take up a lot of time.
A student should remember that living off campus means that you are on your own and not receiving some of the luxuries of living on campus. Students have to pay rent and get all of the basic necessities to live. Off-campus living is truly a test to see if students can live on their own. If you can do it, good luck. The reviews from most of the juniors and students around campus are that they generally love living off campus; the only problem is that some apartments are a good 10-minute walk from campus. As a warning, that 10-minute walk may seem like forever when it's cold outside and snowing, but if you are willing to endure that, then off-campus housing is worth it.
