Accommodation

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, accommodation arrangements and information are subject to change.

However, for over 25 years previous Mountbatten participants lived in shared, fully furnished apartments in Newport, Jersey City, just a 15-minute underground journey to Midtown Manhattan and just moments away from the PATH train service, making for a convenient commute to New York City. Located on the Hudson River, overlooking the Manhattan skyline, and within walking distance of all local amenities, the Newport community has everything needed in reach.

These apartments included:

  • 24-hour doorman
  • Secure key fob building entry
  • Washer/dryer in the building
  • TV, Cable/Internet, and utilities included
  • Three bedrooms, two bathrooms (five trainees per apartment)
  • Living room, dining room, full kitchen

“My roommate became my best friend.”

Trainees share an apartment with four other Mountbattens, and a room with one other. Apartments are mixed gender but bedrooms are single gender.
