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 School of Medicine Applicants

Free Parking is available for invited applicants in the lot directly adjacent to the Alumni House located at 20 Sunshine Cottage Road. There is specific gold and maroon signage on campus directing visiting students to this free parking lot. Additional parking instructions and a visitor parking permit also will be sent to applicants as an attachment to their interview e-mail invitation. Note: The College does not reimburse expenses incurred when parking in any of the paid lots on campus.
