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

Off-Campus Apartments

For academic year 2014-15, before the new NYU Shanghai residence hall is completed, study away students will live in apartments in a serviced residential building in the area of Shanghai known as Pudong.

The Pudong area is conveniently located with many restaurants, shops, and vendors nearby. An entrance to the expansive Shanghai subway is a short walk away, and students are only a 5-10 minute walk from the academic center. All students have on-site Resident Assisstants and 24/7 building security.

Shanghai Residence


Single rooms in a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment. Bathrooms can be shared or private (assigned randomly).


  • Full beds with linens, blankets, and pillows provided
  • Kitchen equipped with cookware
  • VPN and internet access: VPN must be downloaded
  • Security guard on duty
  • Washers and dryers
  • Cleaning service provided once a week for communal spaces
  • Gym and dance studio



Housing rates are pending university budget approval in July 2014.

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.
