Elevate Your New York Experience

During the Fall 2015 term, the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services will offer upper-class students housing within the Affinia Manhattan hotel. Accommodations in the Affinia Manhattan will be part of the 2015-2016 room selection process for upper-class students, and in particular, those planning to either study-away during the Spring 2016 semester or who have December 2015 graduation plans. Fall 2015 residents of the Affinia Manhattan who plan to continue their studies at NYU-New York for the Spring 2016 semester will be reassigned to other space on campus prior to the December 23rd closure of the towers.

With the assistance of the NYU Office of Global Programs and NYU Facilities and Construction Management, we are pleased to announce a number of offerings in place for the Fall 2015 semester only, that seek to address the unique issues posed by a one semester placement in the Affinia Mahattan hotel.

Please review the following information carefully as it may influence your decisions relating to roommates and space selection options:

  • Spring 2016 Study Away Early Decision Admission - For this year, returning undergraduates may apply for a Spring 2016 Study Away early decision admission process. Students who select into the Affinia Manhattan for the Fall 2015 semester will be eligible for priority notification of their study away admission. Students who meet the Study Away application requirements will receive special consideration for admission into one of their two site preferences. The Spring 2016 Study Away early decision admission application will open on March 2, 2015 and will be available via the "Application Center" on Albert. The deadline for the early admission consideration is May 1, 2015. Students who select into the Affinia Manhattan and meet the deadline will receive priority notification by May 15, 2015.
  • Room Selection Priority for Academic Year 2016-2017 – Students who choose to live in the Affinia Manhattan for the Fall 2015 semester will be given top priority for the Academic Year 2016-2017 room selection process.
  • Programmatic Enhancements - In addition to typical hall programming, there will be themed study away offerings in the Affinia hotels designed to prepare students for the study away experience.
  • Transportation - Students living in the Affinia Hotels will receive MetroCards during their stay.
  • Fall Check-in/Check-out - Please note that check-in for the fall term for Affinia residents is not available until Sunday, August 30, 2015.  Earlier check-in is not possible.  Also, Affinia residents will be required to vacate their hotel assignment no later than December 23, 2015. The University will provide appropriate accommodations for those students continuing their Fall 2015 housing assignment through Spring 2016.
