Housing and Tuition

The Cross-Continental MPH Program was designed so that a cohort of students would travel together, learn together, challenge each other, and experience this unique and intensive program together. We do take into account that our students may vary in age, experiences and times in the lives so we offer the option for students to find their own accommodations when it is possible. We encourage our students to form bonds with their peers since one day your peers will be your colleagues. NYU values community and we hope that Cross-Continental MPH cohort students’ experience will be enhanced by being part of the program and larger NYU community.

Tuition and Fees

Cross-Continental MPH students are charged tuition, fees and housing on a per-term basis for each of the three required terms of the program. The tuition and fee charge each term is $30,174, which includes tuition, registration fees, and all program-related travel for the fall and spring terms.

Housing costs are billed separately and on a per-term basis and can vary depending on the site and accommodations chosen. See below for more details on housing options available at each site and associated costs.

Florence, Italy

NYU Florence

Florence is a city where you can easily walk or use public transportation to get anywhere. Most upper classman will live off-campus, while a few may reside at the two campus villas, Natalia and Colletta, as Residence Life Staff. All students are supported by NYU Florence’s Residence Life Staff, regardless of where they reside.

Any graduate student interested in becoming a Resident Life Staff member should alert gph.global@nyu.edu once you accept your offer into the program. Resident Life Staff members do not pay for housing on campus, and are provided a single with a meal plan, in exchange for their resident life role and duties. Interested students need to apply and will be interviewed for the positions.


Off-Campus Residences may be described as dormitory-style facilities located in the center of Florence. Residences are high-occupancy living arrangements (meaning a large residence, an entire floor, or an entire building houses NYU Florence students in apartment-style suites with several bedrooms, shared common areas, and bathrooms) and offer specific amenities, including Internet and cleaning/linens service. Bedrooms consist of singles (limited availability), doubles, triples, and quads.

Single Bedroom

1 person to 1 bedroom


Double Bedroom

2 persons to 1 bedroom


Triple Bedroom

3 persons to 1 bedroom


Multi-person Bedroom

4 persons to 1 bedroom


  • Students living off campus cannot enroll in the on-campus meal plan but can purchase individual meals on campus.
  • Off-campus housing is located throughout various urban and residential neighborhoods around the city of Florence, mostly within the historic city walls.
  • Students must use public transportation (one or more buses) to travel between the NYU Florence campus and their living situations. Taxis are expensive but are the safest way to travel at night. Students should budget for these expenses and leave plenty of time for the commute.
  • The Residences are generally in older buildings, ranging from the 13th to 19th centuries, not modern high-rises.
  • Facilities vary greatly since few buildings were originally constructed as student accommodations, as now utilized. Location, dècor, furnishings, appliances, and floor layouts vary significantly from living situation to living situation. Toasters, microwaves, air-conditioning units, dishwashers and DVD players are NOT considered standard amenities in off-campus housing.
  • All Off-Campus Residences have laundry facilities, although some may not have dryers. In most cases the machines are coin operated, and fees may vary from one living situation to another.
  • Sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, and basic kitchen utensils are supplied. Students should bring or purchase an extra towel for travel and wash cloths, if desired. Those who choose to bring their own sheets should avoid bringing plain white sheets, as these may easily be confused with those provided by the cleaning company.
  • Students are supported via Peer Advisors and Residence Hall Managers who provide programming, assistance, emergency support, etc.; however, these individuals may not live in every housing location.
  • For phone service, one cellular telephone is issued to each Residence by the Facilities Office. Students are responsible for the care and return of these cell phones, and the phones must stay in the living situation in a space where all students have access. For personal use, most students purchase their own cellular phone upon arrival. To make long-distance calls, many students use a VoIP service, like Skype, or locally purchased international calling cards.
  • A suite may house from 4-15 students, and an entire Off-Campus Residence may host from 4 to 45 students. NYU Florence will only accept roommate requests based upon bedroom type, not larger groupings.
