Spotlight on Intergenerational Housing

TV networks and local New York City papers report on the intergenerational housing pilot program announced by the Affordability Steering Committee and Working Group in our October 2016 Update.

In partnership with University Settlement House, NYU’s pilot will match students — mature juniors and seniors, or graduate students — with New Yorkers living in a nearby housing complex who have a spare bedroom.
We hope to launch a pilot by the fall of 2017.
This program — similar to “homestay” options abroad — aims to cut the cost of student housing by at least half for those participating.
