Family Housing

Family Accommodations

The Law School provides family housing for admitted students who qualify. Any of our studios or one-bedroom apartments can be used for family housing.

Qualified students applying for family housing should note the following requirements:

  • In the case of any family, an affidavit must be enclosed from both adult members of the family, declaring that the applicants share a qualifying family relationship, evidenced by a significant emotional commitment on the part of the adult members of the family; and
  • In the case of a minor child, a birth certificate, adoption papers, or evidence that an adult member of the family is the minor child’s guardian.

The obligation to pay rent for families residing in Law School residence halls will be the sole responsibility of the licensee of the family. The School will look solely to the licensee of the family to fulfill that obligation. No relief from the obligation will be available for the licensee if his or her status in the family changes during the license period. All applications for family housing will be reviewed by the Office of Student Affairs before being approved.

For help or questions about the Law School’s housing application process, please contact Melissa Giovinazzo in Student Affairs by email at or by phone at (718) 780-0333.
