Housing Information

The Atlantic Acting School has compiled this list of many housing options in and around NYC to help our students with the housing hunt. In addition, if you are looking for a roommate within the Atlantic family or in search of connecting with other Atlantic Students for any housing related matters – please check out our helpful Facebook Group “The Atlantic Acting School Housing Hub” and request to join!

Another alternative Facebook group is Ghostlight Housing. These are NYC actors looking to sublease their apartments due to current job opportunities that require travel. AIRBnB is an alternative for short term housing. When in doubt, there is always Craigslist – the place where many New Yorkers find their apartments. You can also contact admissions@atlantictheater.org for additional guidance and information.

You’ll receive an e-mail with your matches several times a day. The $19.95 fee is good for one year.
