Yeah I figured. I might actually get a 3 bedroom together with some friends in midtown, and just do the ~15 min commute up to MH everyday. Not too sure how much more expensive it would be though.You won't get much luck with campus housing as priority are on PhD, BSc students who will study there for at least 4 years. If you are going to stay in NYC for work, it's a good idea to start looking for your own apt now.
Hamilton Heights (140s-150s, B'way and Amsterdam) and Inwood (180s + on the west side) are up and coming neighbourhoods. I was living in HH briefly when I was at Columbia and a 2bed was going for around $1500. You can also consider living in Manhattan Valley (on the east side of Morningside Park 100th-120th sts)Travel up north into the Bronx and you can get a one BR, studio for around $1,100/month. You pay for convenience, short commute with a high price of cost and space. Sharing may work for 20-something, not ideal for others. Your roommates may get a SO and move out leaving you shouldering the full rent.
Having your own apt in NYC is a badge or adulthood.
