Ever wonder how much it costs for college students to stay in the St. George Hotel? Kaplan International Centers is offering an end-of-summer residence special at the Weller Residence on 100 Henry Street for the bargain basement price through August 25 of… $320 a week!
Included with a furnished room & private bath are a desk, storage space, bed linens, free high-speed internet, cable TV and mini fridge; as well as a communal kitchen & cooking facilities and basement laundry. Sweet!
Kaplan personifies Brooklyn Heights as “an exclusive, historic neighborhood of beautiful brownstones, cafes, retail shops and lovely parks—a safe and wonderful sanctuary for students to call home. Pure city living without the hustle & bustle”… but misses the boat by also deeming it “a new and upcoming N.Y. neighborhood.” Whoops.
Meanwhile, for Pace University students, room & board for upper-year students at the St. George Weller Residence is as follows: single: $8,425/semester; double or triple studio: $6,760; and double or triple room: $6,660. For first-year students: double: $5,850; or triple: $5,720. In addition, all Pace students are required to purchase a base meal plan for $125/semester, as well as a supplemental meal plan for $925/semester.
