Getting Started:

The application process can be completed entirely online. After either attending a viewing or requesting to book a room, one of our team members will send an application link, in which you’ll be asked to provide your credit score, proof of income, and rental history. (The credit score is not required for internationals)

Move in costs are your first month’s rent with utilities, application fee, and security deposit. The security deposit equates to one month’s rent with utilities.

We do not charge a broker fee!

We look for potential tenants who are enthusiastic to live with others. Within the application, we typically look for a credit score of 650+, a monthly income that is 3x the base rent price.

Our tenants are a diverse group of individuals who are creative and hard working. Our tenants are are young professionals, students, freelancers, and others. 

Aya accepts cosigners for applicants with limited credit history or income.


Utilities are included with an additional fee. Utilities include internet, water, electricity, gas, TV, and cleaning service.

In most apartments, the internet speed is 100 mbps which is rated as suitable for the entire apartment. If you live in one of our townhouse buildings we have multiple routers for sufficient internet speed.

The deposit is an extra months rent. However, you can get in touch with us about applying for the room through our special promotion of deposit free rent!

Say goodbye to security deposits! We’ve partner with Obligo, which means you don’t have to pay a security deposit. You apply through them and if you qualify you don’t have a to a deposit to us!

We transform finding shared housing in NYC from an emotionally exhausting chore into something that’s almost 100% hassle-free. When you use our service, you’ll get a comfortable bedroom in a trendy private home in one of the city’s most desirable areas. What’s more, you can do it without having to put in a lot of time or strenuous effort.  

What’s more, you can rent an NYC room with flexible lease terms. That way, if it doesn’t work out, you can walk away anytime with no questions asked.  

We save you TONS of money on living costs. The average rent in NYC for a one-bedroom apartment is a little less than $4000 a month. However, Aya users pay substantially less than that.  

One of the best things about our service is our rigorous process for vetting potential roommates. This means that when you use Aya, you virtually eliminate the chances you’ll end up with the proverbial roommate from hell.  

Utilities are available for an additional $145. They include not only electricity and water but high-speed internet and Wi-Fi.

All bedrooms and common areas are fully furnished with vibrant and trendy furniture and décor. This includes televisions with the latest technology, chic furniture, and other things to give your home a cozy feel. If you’d like to add your own furnishings to your bedroom to give your digs a personal touch, feel free!

Amenities include appliances, linens, and all the kitchenware you need to whip up amazing gastronomic creations (if that’s your thing). The other thing we offer is regular monthly cleanings by one of our professional crews to keep your home safe and sanitary.


Unfortunately, we don’t allow pets in our apartments.

We have an awesome customer support team who help solve with tenant issues. All issues amongst the tenants should be discussed internally and resolved amongst the apartment. If the issue needs to be reported, please contact us with your concern and we will reach out to help address the issue.

Aya helps find a new tenant for that vacant room. We will do our best to try and find a suitable roommate who would be a good fit for the current tenant living in the unit.
