Housing & On-site Support
One West, a landmark building located on the corner of West Street and Battery Park Place, features apartments with views to Battery Park, New York Harbor, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Financial District of Manhattan. A faculty member serves as an on-site program director and teaches the seminars, leads a variety of experiential learning field trips, and serves as the central resource for students as they navigate life in New York City.
New York City Program students spend four days a week as interns in a firm or organization for one credit. Thanks to Hamilton alumni, parents, and other supporters, there is a growing list of sponsors for Hamilton’s New York City Program students.
Hamilton has a large contingent of alumni located in and around the Big Apple, and they take every opportunity to get to know students in the program. Want to partner with the NYC Program to host an intern? Get in touch with us.
