A Guide to Housing   

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

We want you to feel that, as part of Seton Hall Law School, you're now part of a community, in Newark and beyond. This community exists in downtown Newark, including the famous Ironbound section. It reaches to the Jersey Gold Coast in Hoboken and Jersey City. It stretches across the Hudson into Manhattan, and even some of the outer boroughs. It extends into north Jersey suburbs such as South Orange/Maplewood, Montclair, and Westfield, diverse and vibrant suburban towns.

With such a wide variety of neighborhoods to choose from, and plenty of housing opportunities in each, there is sure to be something that feels right for you. Where to live is a crucial decision and it is not uncommon to have many questions; the Office of the Dean of Students is available to aid you throughout the process. It is our hope that figuring out which part of our "neighborhood" is right for you will be easier than you imagine.

Begin your research here; continue to research which neighborhood is right for you, what your commute will be like, or whether there are accommodations to fit your budget and lifestyle.

After you have done your research, take a look at the “Need a Roommate or Housing" section to see area housing listings and access the Roommate Search/Profile System to find potential roommates and/or to post your profile.
