New York Program

Practical Matters

Travel Information

Capstone students receive a 30-day unlimited Metrocard each month to ride NYC’s subways and buses.


Housing & Food

Students have a number of housing options that include living in the on-campus dormitory, off-campus student residences, rooms in private homes, and shared 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 all tastes, including inexpensive ethnic restaurants, cafes, vegetarian eateries, etc. Brooklyn is a culturally diverse area that offers abundant Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Kosher, and other foods from every region of the world.


Capstone students do not pay a room and board fee.
