It is a condition of the program that all students live in NYU-arranged housing

Off-Campus Apartments

While construction on our new residence hall is completed, students studying away in Shanghai for the 2014-15 academic year will be living in a full-service residential apartments in the area of Shanghai known as Pudong. The Grand Pujian Residence is fully-furnished and located near the expansive Shanghai subway system, and within walking distance of the Academic Center. NYU Shanghai will provide a shuttle service between the apartment complex and campus. 

All students have on-site Resident Assistants (RA) and 24/7 building security. The RA is a position open to full-time sophomores, juniors and seniors. The RA lives on a floor in an undergraduate residence hall and serves as a role model, peer counselor, resource and referral person, advocate, policy enforcer, programmer and leader for residents of their assigned floor(s). RAs are expected to assist in the development of community; engage students with various programming; and report inappropriate behavior. RAs also provide support in emergencies and times of personal stress.

Housing Fees and Payment

Housing, tuition, & fees will be billed directly to your NYU Bursar account. All NYU Shanghai students will be billed an estimated housing charge, which has no bearing on your final assignment. Once known, actual housing charges will be placed on student accounts and estimated charges will be reversed. Students will receive their housing assignment through their housing portal or NYU email account shortly before arrival. We will not send this information to another email address or release it over the phone.
