Find a Great Apartment Near Yeshiva University
The prevalence of public transportation is present in the key statistic of 15 percent--this is how much of the student body has a car with them on-campus at Yeshiva. But off-campus students who can’t afford to rent in NYC, or don’t like urban living, and commute from outside the city tend to favor cars over public transit. Yeshiva is very accessible from two interstates, 87 and 95, as well as US Route 9 and the Henry Hudson Parkway. But don’t even get me started on traffic in the morning, late afternoon, and oftentimes in between. It can turn a simple commute into a very stressful one. I would recommend taking the subway or train when at all possible in your commute.
Yeshiva U has seven campuses, and most of them have a distinct demographic: one school is for female students only, one is a business school, one specializes in medicine, and another in law. But the one common theme the university instills in its campuses is a Jewish secularism. This is most apparent at its campus in Israel, but even at its New York campus you’ll find that the majority of the students are Jewish. Many students bond over this shared religion; who knows, it could even help you find a roommate.
