Travel & Lodging for SOM Applicants

Travel, directions, food and lodging information, is available on the Location section of the website. If you are arriving the morning of your interview, it is best to take a taxi to the College campus. If you are arriving the morning of your interview, it is best to get off at White Plains MetroNorth Station and take a taxi to New York Medical College, Sunshine Cottage, 40 Sunshine Cottage Road, Valhalla, NY 11595 (reference location for taxi driver: adjacent to Westchester Medical Center). More information on taxis is available on the Directions page.


In the fall or spring (September-November; April-June), it might be wise to bring a light jacket and umbrella. In the winter(December-March), it can be cold, snowy, or icy; therefore, a heavier coat and boots are advisable. A portion of our interview day includes a tour outdoors.

Parking for NYMC Applicants

Parking is available for invited NYMC applicants, in the lot directly adjacent to the Alumni House, located at 20 Sunshine Cottage Road.  Parking instructions and a visitor parking permit will be sent to applicants as an attachment to their interview e-mail invitation.  If you do not park at Alumni House and you choose to park in the Visitors' Parking located in front of the MEC, you must obtain a Visitor's Parking permit from the NYMC's Office of Public Safety. 

The College does not reimburse expenses incurred for unauthorized vehicles being booted or towed, or for parking in a pay lot near campus.
