Sublet Policy and Sublet Search Service

Academic Year Sublets
All academic year sublets must be approved by the University and the apartment must be made available to University affiliates before being offered to the non-affiliate market.  If you wish to sublet your apartment during the academic year, please submit your information via the web. If we cannot find an acceptable match within 7 business days, you are free to find your own subtenant.

Sublet Search Service for Current Tenants
The University has unveiled a new, streamlined allocation process for faculty members on approved leave or sabbatical wishing to sublet their apartment during the academic year. Faculty members will receive 110% guaranteed rent and additional improvements to their apartment when they participate in the program.  ELIGIBILITY NOTE: The incentives offered by this program are only for faculty members on approved leave or sabbatical and the apartment must first be subleased by the subtenant's school on behalf of a visiting faculty member.  Summer/winter holiday sublets and sublets negotiated privately without the assistance of an NYU school are not eligible for the incentives (more information).

Summer/Winter Holiday Sublets
Tenants wishing to sublet during the summer/winter holiday may identify a subtenant without first notifying the University.   However, as stated in all NYU leases, tenants are only allowed to sublet their apartment for periods longer than 30 consecutive days.  Moreover, the rent charged by a tenant to a subtenant may not exceed the tenant’s rent plus a 10% surcharge for a furnished apartment.  Once you secure a subtenant for the summer/winter holiday, it is required that you submit a copy of the sublease to the Faculty Housing Office for review and approval.
