Students who matriculate in GSK are offered affordable housing owned by MSK located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. The most available and guaranteed housing option will be studio apartments, which include a kitchenette and bath, with a 2021 monthly rent of $1,524. Shared units may also be available on a limited basis. The cost of housing is subsidized to approximately 40 percent below the market value in the same area. Rent for housing is deducted from the student’s stipend payments. An estimated budget for food per year averages $6,753.

The occupancy agreement should be read carefully because it is a contract between MSK and the student. The housing contract is in effect for the duration of study and is automatically renewed each year. If a student wishes to vacate MSK housing before completion of the program, the student must abide by the vacate policy of the Housing Division.

Students who are finishing their degrees have to comply with the GSK sign-out process, which includes a 30-day notice for termination of the occupancy agreement with MSK.
