Practical Matters

Housing & Meals

Students have a number of housing options that include living in the on-campus dormitory, off-campus student residences, sharing rooms in private homes, and renting apartments. Most LIU Global students choose to find their own rentals with other students studying in NYC. Because rent is expensive in Manhattan, most LIU Global students choose to live in Brooklyn and Queens where there are more housing options at lower costs.

Meal plans are available for students who live on campus. New York provides a plethora of experiences for students’ taste buds, including good cheap food, ethnic restaurants, cafes, vegetarian eateries, and fancier upscale restaurants. Brooklyn is a culturally diverse area which offers abundant Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian and Kosher foods and foods from every region of the world.

Internet Access

Students at the New York City Center are able to use the facilities of LIU Brooklyn. The campus supports 30 campus-wide labs for student use with over 600 computers. The New York City Center has wireless internet access, four student computers with internet access, and wireless access is available in some of the classrooms. The LIU Global website provides prospective and enrolled students with the most current New York City Center information.
