    University provides subsidized housing. The university has its own security force with patrol cars that move around the campus and its housing.


    Subsidized housing is still expensive because it is in NYC. University has extremely annoying mandatory sexual respect initiative requirements that will take a decent chunk of your life away for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Public safety is good, CUIT is good, sexual respect initiative requirement is stupid and its only value is to be used as an excuse that you have done something, when you have not. Grad students are happy to defend you if you are under attack, but please don't waste our time like this.
