NYU’s plan to help students cut costs: House them with seniors

01:04

New York University has unveiled a program to help its students cut costs: by having them live in the spare bedrooms of local senior citizens. Those who participate will see their housing costs plummet from $14,000 a year to half that. Both students and senior citizens will be vetted to make sure they are a good fit. Similar ideas have been successfully implemented at other schools.
