International Student Housing

Hugh Said:

What is the process for an international student to rent an apartment in NYC?

We Answered:

I recently moved from FL to NY. I had to pay 6 months rent up front w/o a guarantor bc I have good credit but no income, with a guarantor that person needs to make 6x the annual amount of rent and have good credit. Credit is generally not recognized from foreign countries, so you'll probably have to pay up front. My broker told me when he works with people from foreign countries, their application shows they have No credit. not bad not good, but none. Our system doesn't recognize it. i chose to live in a private condo, which involved me working with a broker and the owner which is how we came to this agreement. Just make sure you DON'T sign anything you don't completely understand and feel comfortable with. Even though it may cost a little more, you may want to contact a broker, just to make sure everything is legitimate. I have heard horror stories from classmates who were taken advantage of by landlords. What area are you trying to move to? Again, you'll probably have to work something out directly with a landlord, and certain areas are more open to that than others. Also, moving in the summer is when most rent prices are highest and least negotiable on terms, so try to plan your move accordingly if you can.

Wayne Said:

which is the best community college for an international student to go to in terms of fees, housing, and etc?

We Answered:

Try Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, GA. It's the community college I went to. It's a "growing" college so it's still small enough to offer all kinds of special help (and a game room with about 9 high def tv's, two xbox 360's, and 2 Nintendo Wiis in it). There is always a computer open, and it's already a pretty diverse place between the hispanics, brazilians, and african americans, not to mention the transfer students from other countries. The class sizes are great, the people are great, and it's cheap too :D. I loved my 2 years there. Look around at the website!

I am an international student and i need summer housing for a month. Any ideas??

We Answered:

I don't know if you've already checked, but your university may have some resources to help you out. There might be some assistance available to you in finding a place to rent or if homestay is available perhaps your school can help arrange that for you. You can also stay in a hostel or check to see if any students are looking for a room mate (or put up an ad yourself to let students know you're looking). Good luck.
