Application Process

Thank you for your interest in living on-campus!   Living in NYU Housing is the best way to meet new friends and get involved in university life.

Please follow the instructions below based on your classification:

New Undergraduate Students


Once a new freshmen undergraduate student has accepted admission to the University, they will receive application instructions from this office and will be able to access the housing application on the NYUHome Housing Forms channel.

  • Fall 2014: The Fall 2014 housing application is open for admitted students. The applicaiton and $1,000 reservation payment must be submitted by May 1, 2014 in order to secure guaranteed housing for the 2014-2015 academic year.

More details regarding the FYRE Assignment Process can be found here.

Transfer Students

New transfer undergraduate students who have accepted admission to the University will be able to access the non-renewable housing application on the NYUHome Housing Forms channel.

  • Fall 2014: Housing for transfer students is not guaranteed. With the closing of Hayden Hall for the 2014-2015 academic year, we do not anticipate being able to offer housing to anyone who does not have a guarantee of housing.  The Fall 2014 non-renewable housing application is available. Anyone who completes the non-renewable application by May 30, 2014 will receive a status update by June 2, however, we encourage new transfer students and other non-renewable applicants to seek accommodations off campus due to a lack of available space on campus.  

Current Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students admitted through NYU's Undergraduate Admissions Office are guaranteed housing for their entire education at NYU, provided they accept housing upon admission, maintain matriculation, meet all housing application and payment deadlines, and do not cancel their NYU-NY housing for reasons other than a school-approved medical leave or study away program. By meeting these criteria, students maintain their housing guarantee and are considered to have a “renewable housing status”. Thus named since these students are able to renew their housing contract each year.  Undergraduate students that have not met the criteria above have a “non-renewable housing status” and are not guaranteed housing.

New and Current Graduate Students

Graduate students are not guaranteed housing but are able apply via the non-renewable, non-guaranteed housing application process.

Visiting Students

Visiting students (students not matriculating from NYU) are not guaranteed housing but are eligible to apply for housing via the non-renewable, non-guaranteed application process
