Housing assignments will be mailed to your NYU email addresses when they are available, which is typically about 2-3 weeks prior to your arrival.  However, roommate names are not distributed until you arrive in Washington, DC.  NYU Washington, DC will attempt to accommodate student housing preferences; however, students may be placed in any of the residential spaces, regardless of preferences, based on the overall needs of the program.  Any student who would like to request a particular housing accommodation based on a health or medical need must submit that request with the NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities prior to the beginning of the semester.  Any approvals made by the Moses Center for housing accommodations are subject to housing availability, especially after students have moved into NYU Washington, DC.

Initially, all students will be billed an IDENTICAL HOUSING ESTIMATE (estimate for Fall 2015: $5,743 - the cost of a double room).  This is NOT an indication of your housing assignment.  If your final housing assignment changes, then the estimated housing charge will be replaced with your actual housing charge as soon as possible.  However, the billing change could occur after the beginning of the term.

DOUBLE:  $5944/semester (4 students/apartment)

SINGLE:  $7728/semester (1 student/apartment)

NOTE:  These are proposed fall 2016 and spring 2017 semester rates for the Washington, D.C. study away site only. Final rates are pending board of trustees approval summer 2016.  Room rates are site specific and are generally determined by room type, rental costs, and associated support services.  The figures cited in NYU's Cost of Attendance are based on annual room and board rates at NYU's location in New York.
