Our Experience Helps You Learn
EHS has been the most innovative and imaginative provider of safe and fun student housing for over 24 years. Founded as a not-for-profit company in 1987, EHS is the much-needed answer to the long-standing student housing shortage in NYC. Since our inception, we have provided hundreds of thousands of students and interns—many of whom travel across America and from over 50 countries worldwide—with a place to call home. It is our mission to create strong student communities in partnership with schools and universities that encompass a scholastic environment and promote the values of diversity, independence, growth and life long friendships. And we always maintain the quality of student life at the forefront of everything we do.
Beyond our residence development and management, our comprehensive Student Life Program is crucial to our mission and our trailblazing success. Residential activities, as well as many special events in and around the city, inspire students to discover their vital new living community and the wonders of New York City safely and conveniently. Before long, students embrace our supportive environment as a true home away from home, which helps them to flourish academically and socially.
Our staff has decades of experience in higher-education management. Their experience has been essential to providing the ideal balance of structure and independence that helps college students succeed.
...But We Haven’t Done It Alone
EHS is the first choice partner for New York colleges and universities.
We partner with institutions to provide facilities that the schools can trust as part of their own residence life programs. These schools hold EHS in the highest regard, and come to us year after year knowing that collaboration with EHS maximizes institutional resources, expands social opportunities, and increases students’ ability to achieve.
EHS is also active in the leading professional associations and industry organizations, which keeps us at the forefront of student housing trends and advocacy.
