Housing & Residence Life


Six floors of the Constance Milstein and Family Academic Center feature the Annette N. and Theodore M. Lerner Family Residential Hall.  Each residential floor contains four-person suites, studio apartments, and a student lounge.  All students who study away at NYU Washington, DC are required to live in NYU housing.

A full-time Residential Life Coordinator and other part-time Residential Life Administrators reside in NYU Washington, DC to provide advice, guidance, support, programming, and activities.  The center is conveniently located near DC Metro and bus services, and just a short walk away from the White House, Smithsonian museums, and many spectacular monuments and memorials.

Housing Overview


All students studying at NYU Washington, DC are required to live in the Constance Milstein and Family Academic Center, which is located at 1307 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20005.  Only students who request to live with a member of their immediate family in the DC metro area will be considered for an exception to this policy.


Double - A two-bed room that is shared with another resident.  Each double bedroom has two beds, two desks, two desk chairs, and two wardrobes.  Each four-person suite has two double bedrooms; one shared bathroom with a separate toilet and shower area; a common area with a table and chairs; and a kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, and electric stove top (there is no oven).

NOTE:  Ovens and cable TV hookups are not included in any of the rooms or suites.  However, there are convection ovens available for use in the building and flatscreen TVs with cable available in the student lounges.


Housing assignments will be mailed to your NYU email addresses when they are available, which is typically about 1-2 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.

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 differs (double as single, single), 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.


Room Type Cost Total Occupancy
Double $5,743 3-4 people (2 bedroom suite)
Double as single $6,891 2-3 people (2 bedroom suite)
Single $7,466 1 person (Studio/efficiency apt.)
