The City of New Rochelle had enacted into law a Student Housing Business Registration program on July 19, 2016. All owners of properties housing three (3) or more students within New Rochelle are required to register on the City’s Student Housing Business Registration website. Renewal or new registration is required to be completed by September 30, 2017.
The information collected will help the City:
- Create a comprehensive student housing directory
- Protect the safety of students from overcrowding situations
- Mitigate any negative impact of student housing on surrounding neighborhoods
- Provide important contact information in the event of an emergency.
A Student Housing business is defined as a one-family, two-family, three-family or multiple-family dwelling that houses three (3) or more students attending or registered to attend a college or university, or who are on a semester or summer break from studies at a college or university. Information about the location, premises, owner contacts and fire safety will be collected. Additionally, a designated Property Manager, either a superintendent living in the premises or a local managing agent with offices in the City of New Rochelle or an abutting town, who is available twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, must be named.
To register visit the City’s website at www.newrochelleny.com/studenthousing.
There is NO FEE to register or renew. Penalties for non-compliance may be assessed.
This registration is effective through May 31, 2018 and must be renewed annually thereafter.
