This Parent e-Newsletter is published monthly during the academic year for parents of current NYU undergraduate students in New York by the Student Resource Center.

Spring Break in New York has come and gone, leaving the next 5-weeks filled with tons of end-of-the-year programs. It’s also the time when students begin thinking about exams, summer internships, preparing for graduation, and for many, going home for the summer. This month’s newsletter includes important dates and deadlines regarding graduation, meal plans, and registration for the summer and fall. You will also find residence hall move-out and storage information, career and off-campus living resources, and information on hotels should you be traveling to NYC.

Celebrating NYU Graduates

Graduating students are responsible for ordering tickets for events, ordering their cap and gown, and scheduling their photo session (optional). Important dates, deadlines, and other details are available online at www.nyu.edu/commencement:

  • Tickets for the All University Commencement are available for ordering until May 5
  • Academic Attire must be ordered online by April 11, although some schools may have an earlier deadline due to school ceremonies.

Preparing for Residence Hall Move-Out

Students will soon receive reminder notices via email and on their room doors about planning for move-out. The policy is that residents should plan to move-out within 24 hours of their last exam (exam week is May 10-16) or by 12:00pm on Wednesday, May 17, whichever comes first. Graduating seniors are required to checkout by 12:00pm on the day after their last graduation ceremony. Students should be in touch with their Residence Hall Director well in advance regarding any issues related to checking out on time. Residence Hall staff contact information is available on respective Residence Hall pages
