Student Housing Options
To all Prospective New York Film Academy Students and Applicants: Please note, regarding housing and accommodations, there is deceptive advertising on the internet offering affordable housing deals. Do not transfer any funds, unless you have someone verify that it is a legitimate company. The Film Academy has housing coordinators at our NYC, LA and Miami campuses who can assist you. Please feel free to contact them at [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected].
Students should estimate the following costs for housing and meals. The New York Film Academy can make additional housing suggestions, and dormitory facilities are available at most summer workshops.
For Summer programs, students living in on-campus housing should confirm their arrival and departure dates with the Admissions Office. Depending on the date and location, the arrival day may include orientation, room assignments, key distribution, and registration.
Off-campus students may be required to register along with the resident students on that day. The final day of the summer programs is usually reserved for packing up and departures. Students clean and check-out of their rooms by noon.
New York City
Our New York Housing Coordinator assists students in finding safe and convenient accommodations in New York City.
For students who would like to live in a dormitory type facility, the New York Film Academy offers double room accommodations and a very limited number of single rooms. Room amenities include private bathroom, refrigerator, microwave, WiFi, cable television, room to study, and plenty of storage. These accommodations are a brief subway ride to the NYFA campus. Student resident housing fees are based on the length of their program, and average approximately $1800 a month per person. Please be aware that a refundable deposit is required to reserve a bed at the residence. Daily tours are given at the residence seven days a week.

Our Housing Coordinator can assist students in finding other housing options such as a furnished shared apartment. The average cost for a furnished shared apartment in the New York City area generally range from $1000 – $2500/month per person. Furnished studio apartments can start at $2200/month. It is possible to find less expensive options at a longer commute from our campus. Students interested in apartment stays should plan to arrive a week or two early to visit places in person.
Hostels and hotels are available for short stays starting at $80 and up per night.

The Los Angeles campus is located in the city of Burbank, which is also known as the “Media Capital of the World”. With its year-round perfect weather and historical connection to the film industry, Burbank makes a great community in which to live, work, and study.
While NYFA does not have on-campus housing/dormitories, our Housing Department helps students find an apartment or residential option for both long-term and short-term stays. We recommend several different apartment communities such as AVA Burbank, Parc Pointe Apartments, Toluca Hills Apartments by Avalon, Archstone Studio City and Madison Toluca Apartments, all of which are within walking/biking distance to our campuses. These apartments can range in price for $1,700/month for an unfurnished Studio, up to $2,800/month for an unfurnished 2-bedroom (pricing determined by amenities, location, length of stay, and size of apartment). Since it can be quite expensive to live alone, we suggest that students share an apartment to help split these monthly costs. For all Los Angeles Housing information, Applicants needing a roommate(s), or help to find available rooms to rent within our NYFA community, can join our online Housing Community at Housing.NYFA.EDU
With Los Angeles being a very diverse and cultural city, students can expect to find a wide range of food options that fit their dietary needs. We suggest that students budget at least $500/month for food (per individual).
