SAFE CO-LIVING housing for women IN NYC

The Webster Apartments have a new home! In March 2023, The Webster Apartments moved to our new temporary home, The Webster Apartments at FOUND Study Midtown East. FOUND Study is a low-cost provider of affordable student and intern housing in New York City, offering fully furnished, turnkey private rooms with in-room bathrooms, a variety of common spaces and modern amenities.

Our Mission: Housing For Women. While the building is co-ed, Webster occupies the entire 16th floor which is all-female. At FOUND Study Midtown East, Webster can fulfill our mission to provide housing to women studying or interning in NYC while we continue the search for our permanent home. Until then, this new building allows Webster to provide a safe and healthy environment to live, connect, and network with like-minded individuals.
