Here is an email I got from a company called Educational Housing Services that offers housing for students coming to NY. Eco Brooklyn gets a lot of interns from out of town and we usually send them to Craigslist.org for their housing needs. I’ve never used Educational Housing Services but I thought I’d pass the info on in case any students find it useful.
Educational Housing Services www.studenthousing.org has been housing students and interns from around the world for 25 years (including a Brown University student who will be with Eco Brooklyn this Summer) and we offer safe, high-quality, all-inclusive housing solutions that enable residents to excel in their studies and work related endeavors.
Our residences are designed exclusively for students and our accommodations come fully furnished. Free high-speed internet, gym access, local phone and TV/cable are included, and they are located in New York City’s best and most convenient neighborhoods.
EHS Residences provide 24/7 Security Personnel, and EHS’s trained Resident Life staff is also available 24/7. Together with the additional safety and comfort our Residence Life team provides, they offer a full calendar of social events and city excursions every week (see attached for Summer 2011 example).
