Looking to sublet your apartment? Please review the below guidelines and procedure.
The Faculty Housing Office has received numerous complaints from tenants that some of their neighbors are renting their apartments to non-NYU affiliates for periods of less than 30 days via internet sites such as Craigslist.org and Sabbaticalhomes.com.
Any sublease or license of the apartment or portions of the apartment, to transient tenants including overnight occupants, licensees, guests and renters through services such as Airbnb and VRBO is a violation of the lease to rent.
The University takes this issue very seriously and any such violations will be strictly penalized with sanctions up to and including eviction. Note that this policy is consistent with that of most residential buildings in Manhattan and is designed to protect the welfare of all tenants.
Global Assignment: In order to maintain your Washington Square housing, faculty members must be full time in New York with the exception of up to one year on approved paid or unpaid leave or sabbatical or two years for those on global assignment. NYU Faculty members on Global Assignment, who do not return to New York full time after two years, are expected to relinquish their Washington Square housing. Faculty members will be accommodated upon their return to New York in an apartment adequate to their family size at that time. Please reach out to email@example.com with questions about this policy.
