The University has contracted a limited number of hotel spaces for the Fall 2015 semester. The Affinia Manhattan will house upperclass residents, not new freshmen. These accommodations are for the Fall 2015 semester only. The room rate will be $7,942/semester. Students will not be able to check in until 3:00pm EDT Sunday, August 30, 2015, and must check out by 10:00am EST on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, per the schedule below.
Students canceling their spring housing in accordance with the housing license must check-out within 24 hours after their last final exam, or by 10:00am EST on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, whichever comes first. The only permitted reasons to cancel housing for the spring include graduating in December, studying away for the spring, taking an approved leave of absence, or withdrawing from NYU.
Residents who are not graduating in December, or not participating in approved Spring 2016 study away programs will be held to the terms of the 2015-2016 Housing License for both fall and spring semesters. Students continuing their studies at NYU-New York will transition into their Spring 2016 housing assignments by 10:00am on December 23, 2015.
