Browse Resource Map

This classic 1920s hotel, located in the heart of scenic Brooklyn Heights, in located one subway stop from Manhattan. The St. George, once a destination for celebrities and athletes, now houses more than 800 students and interns from around the world. The Weller Building (single bedrooms) is connected to the St. George, and the accommodations consist of a single bedroom with a bathroom in the room, cable TV, and Internet access.

Student Testimonial 

"Looking back, living at the St. George (Northeastern student housing in Brooklyn Heights) could not have been a better decision. Brooklyn Heights, and the surrounding neighborhoods of Dumbo, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Bridge Park, etc. are all extremely vibrant and fun areas to live and walk around in. In terms of commuting, the 2/3 train runs right underneath the building (with the 4/5 and R trains nearby) and you’re only one stop from Manhattan! I worked Downtown and had a much shorter commute than my coworkers who lived in Midtown. The students were all friendly and the building was well-maintained. All in all I had a lovely experience at the St. George and would recommend it in the fullest!"
