Phase 1: Required Reapplication & Payment

In Phase 1 of the Undergraduate Reapplication and Room selection process, undergraduate students submit an online application and a nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment to secure housing for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Phase 1 will begin on March 2, 2015 and will be open through 5pm EST on March 12, 2015.

Students who complete Phase 1 agree to the key components of the process and are bound the 2015-2016 Housing License. Please review the components, license and the 2015-2016 Proposed Housing Rates prior to completing Phase 1.

Students wishing to maintain their renewable housing status and/or secure housing for the 2015-2016 academic year must:

  • complete the online application AND
  • submit the nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment

The deadline to complete the steps of Phase 1 is March 12, 2015.

Students who do not complete Phase 1:

  • will no longer be eligible for guaranteed housing and will only be eligible for housing via the non-guaranteed, non-renewable housing application process AND
  • will not be eligible to participate in Phase 2: Room Selection.
    Important Note:  With the closing of Hayden Hall for the 2015-2016 academic year, we do not     anticipate being able to offer space to anyone without guaranteed housing.  These students will     need to seek accommodations off campus.
 

ELIGIBLITY


Renewable undergraduate students and current Spring 2015 non-renewable undergraduate residents are eligible to participate in the Reapplication/Room Selection process for the upcoming academic year.

A renewable status indicates that you have met all of the following requirements:

  • students accept the initial housing offer at the time of admission
  • students meet all payment deadlines
  • students meet all reapplication deadlines
  • students maintain matriculated status
  • students do not at anytime cancel their housing contract (school approved medical leaves and NYU study abroad programs are the only exception)

A non-renewable status indicates that you have not maintained a renewable status as defined above.

APPLICATION

In addition to submitting a nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment to secure 2015-2016 undergraduate housing, students must complete the online 2015-2016 application by March 12, 2015.

To access the application, you will need to login to NYUHome. There you will find the "Housing Forms Log-In" channel on the NYU Life page. Click on the "Student Housing and Meal Plan Forms" link and follow the University login prompts to access the application portal. Once in the portal, you may access the housing application by clicking the "Application" link in the grey navigation bar and starting the "Academic Year 2015-2016" application.

PAYMENT

In addition to submitting the online application to secure 2015-2016 academic year housing, a nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment must be paid by March 12, 2015. This payment will be applied to Fall 2015 housing charges.

Online payments must be made using the eDeposits tab in NYU's eSuite via Albert. Please do not use the "Make a Payment" button for your payment.

Financial Aid and Tuition Pay may not be used to cover this payment.

If payment of the $1000 reservation payment is not received by March 12, 2015:

  • your 2015-2016 academic year housing application will be canceled.
  • you will only be eligible to apply for Fall 2015/Spring 2016 NYU housing through the non-guaranteed, non-renewable housing application process.
  • you will not be guaranteed NYU housing in the future.

How to Pay

Upon completion of the online application, you will be prompted to the Housing Reservation Payment Coupon which will include detailed instructions on making:

  • a direct check or money order payment to the Bursar.
  • an electronic check payment via NYUHome > Albert > Student Center > View Bursar Account > eSuite: eDeposit.  Online reservation payments must be made using the eDeposits tab in NYU's eSuite via Albert. Please do not use the "Make a Payment" button for your deposit.  Please visit the Bursar's website for more details.

Please complete the Housing Reservation Payment Coupon and submit it to the Bursar's Office, by mail, 105 E 17th St, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10003, or in person at 25 West 4th St., Main Floor.

PRIORITY

For room selection purposes the terms "sophomore", "senior", "junior", are NOT defined by academic credits earned, but are determined by the status a student has upon first entering the university. The presumption being that freshmen will need 8 semesters of housing. Transfers will need 4 semesters of housing. Priority for lottery will be determined by the number of anticipated remaining housing semesters.

Academic Year 2015-2016 Room Selection Priority:

Priority Group 1 (high priority - "Sophomore")

"Sophomore" defined as a renewable student with anticipated 6-7 remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshmen in Fall 2014 or Spring 2015).

Priority Group 2 (middle priority - "Senior" & "Junior")

"Senior" defined as a renewable student with 2-3 anticipated remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshmen in Fall 2012 or Spring 2013; Transfers admitted to NYU in Fall 2014 or Spring 2015).

AND

"Junior" defined as a renewable student with 4-5 anticipated remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshman in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014).

Priority Group 3 (low priority - "Non-Renewable")

Current undergraduate students in Spring 2015 housing that were assigned via the non-renewable housing application process.

Students may not change their priority based upon credits earned. For example a student who has been in housing for 4 semesters but is short credits giving them junior status may not be re-classified as a sophomore (or priority 1).

STUDY AWAY

Students currently studying away for Spring 2015

Renewable undergraduate students who are currently participating in a Spring 2015 NYU approved study away program must complete Phase 1 by submitting an online application and paying the $1000 reservation payment by March 12, 2015 to secure NYU-NY housing for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Students who will be studying away for Fall 2015

Students who have been admitted to a NYU study away program for the Fall 2015 semester and have confirmed their acceptance with the Office of Global Programs do not need to apply via the Undergraduate Reapplication and Room Selection process. They will automatically maintain their renewable status and will be notified to apply for Spring 2016 NYU-NY housing in November.

Students who are unsure of their study away status but wish to maintain their NYU-NY renewable housing status should complete Phase 1 by submitting an online application and paying the $1000 reservation payment by March 12, 2015.

If a student is admitted and confirmed into a Fall 2015 study away program after completing Phase 1, they should submit a Academic Year 2015-2016 Cancellation Request (NYUHome > NYULife > Housing Forms) so that we can update our records to reflect your study away status. Once you have notified us of your status, your record will be adjusted and if applicable, the $1000 payment will be credited to your Bursar account.
