Graduate Center Apartment

Located at 165 East 118th Street, the eight-story Graduate Center Apartments complex offers bright, modern and airy housing, as well as providing an easy commute to the Graduate Center for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and members of the faculty. The complex shares the plaza of CUNY's East Harlem Campus with Hunter College's School of Social Work.


The Graduate Center Apartments feature all of the modern amenities you would expect in a first-rate housing complex.

East Harlem's lively, thriving community offers convenient banking, shopping, and restaurants on local streets and at the neighborhood's East River Plaza, home to Costco, Target, Best Buy, and Old Navy. It is an area rich in open space—Central Park's Harlem Meer, Marcus Garvey and Thomas Jefferson parks, and many community gardens—and is home to some of the city's prized cultural institutions.

The complex offers easy access to bus, subway, and train travel. Ready transit to the Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue at 34th St.) is available via the Number 6 subway, from the 116th Street station at Lexington Avenue to the 33rd Street stop at Park Avenue. Buses run up and down Lexington and Third Avenues and across 116th and 125th Streets. For travel south to Grand Central Station or to points north of the city, there's the Metro-North station at 125th Street on Park Avenue.

Housing is intended principally for Graduate Center central line faculty, together with a few senior administrators. Among central line faculty, preference will be given to those who are new or recently appointed. Should apartments be available after these priorities are met, applications from college-based members of the Doctoral faculty and, following them, other non-doctoral CUNY faculty may be considered.
