Renting or sharing an apartment

We have all heard horror stories about the roommate finding process or the search of an apartment. Unless you have a guarantor or you make 35 times your monthly rent, chances are probably inexistent to find a place on your own.

We work with a trendy flexible room rental company that makes city living easy. They provide students with fully furnished bedrooms in vibrant neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn. You can sign your contract online prior to departure and… enjoy the city!

If you’d rather not pay this huge fee, you can browse directly the numerous listings online and find a no fee apartment or a roommate. It is advised to wait to be in New York to do your research in order to be able to visit the apartment, meet your future roommates and avoid to get scammed.


Estimated expenses that may incurred monthly by students:

Monthly expenses Amount in $
Housing (roommates) Between $900 and $1,400
Nourriture $300
Books and Supplies $75
Transportation $127
Cellular phone $70

EFAP New York


Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to study in the US must have an F1 visa. Before you can apply at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate for an F student visa, you must first apply to EFAP New York. When you are accepted, you will be enrolled in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). The EFAP NY Director will then provide you with a Form I-20 to present to the consular officer when you attend your visa interview.

The steps to follow are:

  1. Have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months after the end date of the study period in the United States
  2. Wait for the I-20 form sent by the American university to start the visa process
  3. Complete the online non-immigrant visa application:
  4. Pay the non-refundable visa fee ($160) with your credit card or via wire transfer on the Embassy site.
  5. Once you have paid, you must schedule an appointment online. Wait times for interview appointments vary by location, season, and visa category, so you should apply for your visa early.

For the appointment, you must bring the following documents :

  • Your passport and I-20 dated and signed (au § 11)
  • A second ID with your photo to enter the consulate or the Embassy
  • Application fee payment receipt and I-20 fee payment receipt
  • A copy of the bank letter to prove you have enough funds for all educational, living and travel costs
  • Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-160 confirmation page
  • A proof of your intent to depart the United States upon completion of the course of study: letter from school

NB : The SEVIS fee ($350) will be paid directly by EFAP NEW YORK and the receipt will be given to you by the school.
