Housing

While Digital Film Academy does not own or operate any housing facilities, we actively assist students to locate safe, convenient, and affordable accommodations. We believe the right housing enhances the learning experience. We are after all in New York City, the greatest city in the world. Whether students choose to live in a share or a separate apartment the Digital Film Academy will help arrange affordable and safe living situations for film students. Digital Film Academy does not own or operate any housing facilities. We have several short-term residences on file as well as web listings of hundreds of apartment shares and subleases. There is an accommodation to fit every budget and there is no additional charge for this service. You can find a neighborhood to suit you. The East Village is the trendiest spot in the city and just a few minutes away by mass transit or if you prefer, Lincoln Center were you will experience the finest performances in the world and be just a few minutes walk away. Also within walking distance is Times Square, Restaurant Row, Central Park, The Empire State Building… it just goes on and on…
