January Term Housing

January Term Housing takes place during the intersession between the Fall and Spring terms.

During the January Term, New York University offers students registered for January Term classes the opportunity to live on-campus in our conveniently located residence halls.  Please note that housing is very limited this January Term, and we can only guarantee housing to academic year NYU students. Non-NYU students enrolled in January Term courses at NYU will be offered placement on a housing waitlist and will be assigned if space becomes available. Please continue reading for more specific information about accommodations, cost, and how to apply.


Accommodations are single or shared bedrooms (with current NYU students), in multi-bedroom traditional or apartment-style suites with bathrooms. Please note that there are a very limited number of single rooms in apartment style halls. Apartment style suites have kitchens; traditional hall suites do not. All bedrooms are furnished with a bed, desk, and dresser for each resident. Smoking is not permitted in NYU Housing. Linens and bedding are not provided.

  • Check-in: Sunday, January 4, 2015 (check-in begins at 12 Noon)
  • Check-out: Saturday, January 24, 2015 (check-out no later than 12 Noon)

How to Apply for January Term Housing:

Please review the information below to determine how to request housing during January Term classes. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, December 2, 2014.

NYU Students who have a Fall 2014 & Spring 2015 NYU Housing license:

NYU students with both a Fall 2014 & Spring 2015 NYU Housing license may continue to stay in their existing residence hall assignment during January Term for no additional charge and do not need to complete an application.

NYU students who have only a Fall 2014, only a Spring 2015, or no NYU Housing license for the 2014-2015 Academic Year:

NYU students who have only a Fall 2014 or Spring 2015 NYU Housing license (e.g. fall residents intending to study away in the spring, new spring residents, etc.) or NYU students who have no housing license for the 2014-2015 academic year must be enrolled in NYU courses in order to live on-campus for January Term. These students have to complete the January Term housing application through their NYU home account (click on the NYU Life tab, then on NYU Housing and Meal Plan forms), and will be charged for 3 weeks in January Term housing (see rates above).

Residents who only have a Fall 2014 NYU Housing license may be required to relocate from their Fall 2014 housing assignment to another room within NYU Housing. Fall 2014 residents must check out after their January Term classes have ended, no later than 12 Noon on Saturday, January 24, 2015.

Visiting students attending January Term:

January Term housing is only guaranteed to academic year NYU students. Visiting January Term students interested in January Term housing should indicate their interest in housing on the January Term Housing Waitlist, which can be accessed here. If we are able to offer you housing for January Term 2015, we will contact you by mid-December 2014.

Please note that if spaces become available, they are likely to be in shared bedrooms within apartments that have been occupied by residents for several months prior to your arrival. To help you get acquainted with your temporary roommate(s), you’ll receive their email address after your housing assignment has been made. Since January Term takes place during the intersession between Fall and Spring semesters, your NYU roommate may be away for this period, or may come and go from their NYU Residence assignment for periods of varying length.
