- 24 hour concierge

All Mountbatten Trainees must stay in the Mountbatten Program accommodation for the duration of the program.
Who will my roommates be?
When you arrive in New York you will have a ready-made community of fellow Mountbatten Trainees. There are approximately five Trainees per apartment, a great opportunity to make friends fast in your new city.
Each Trainee shares a room with another Trainee of the same gender and if required Trainees can request a single gender apartment also.
Everyone lives together and yes, you share rooms. Living in close proximity to everyone actually makes life so much easier if you want to pop by someone’s for dinner, to borrow their clothes or to watch TV. My roommate became my best friend.
