Finding a place to live in NYC can sometimes be difficult on your own. That's why Bluedata offers optional housing assistance to its international students. These housing options range from local home stays to private apartments, depending on the student's budget and personal preference. Students may speak to their agent regarding further information on housing options in NYC.
Living with an American host family is not only a great way to improve your English, but also to learn and experience the culture. Upon a student's request, Bluedata is able to introduce host families to students who they can live with during their time of study in the US. Price range is $800 to $1,000 per month with meals provided.
Finding the right apartment in New York is one of the most important things to accomplish and may not be easy. Therefore, upon student's request, Bluedata is able to introduce apartments with reasonable rents in Manhattan and other boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island). Price is anywhere between $600 (shared) and $1,500.

Since medical treatment in NYC is very expensive without insurance, it is highly recommended for all international students to purchase student health insurance for their stay in NYC.
All international students holding F1/J1 visas have the option of purchasing AIG's affordable Compass Health Insurance plan, or ISO's International Student Health Insurance. Students may speak to their counselor/agent at any time regarding further information about student health insurance.
All international students are required to report directly to Bluedata upon arrival in NYC. Bluedata provides airport pickup to its international students for a nominal service fee. (See Courses and Fees-Optional Service Fees)

While attending Bluedata, all students have access to many fun, educational, social, and recreational activities.
Throughout the course of study, teachers take students on cultural outings/field trips in New York City, ranging from museum visits to outdoor activities, cultural parades, and free concerts. Our staff is also ready to assist students with directions to events and suggestions for activities. For the student's convenience, the school makes a monthly calendar of social, educational, and cultural activities in New York City which also includes all locations and cost information.
To further enhance the student's social and cultural experiences, our friendly staff plans annual holiday parties at school to foster school spirit and introduce students to American culture and holidays. Some of these holidays include New Year's, Christmas, and Halloween.
