New York City, as with much of the midwest and northeast part of the U.S., just got hit with another big, wet snow. All the more reason for students to anticipate their well deserved Spring Break just a week away. The University will be open over the break, as well as all residence halls. Our March newsletter provides updates on the housing reapplication process, summer, graduation, study away, and our printable office directory.
2013-2014 UNDERGRADUATE HOUSING REAPPLICATION PROCESS
Undergraduate Housing Reapplication and Room Selection is a two-phase process beginning on Monday, March 11, 2013 with reapplication, and concluding in April with room selection. Current Spring 2013 undergraduate residents and undergraduate students that have maintained their renewable housing status are able to participate in this process to secure housing for the 2013-2014 academic year. Key components of the process are available by clicking here.
A $1000 non-refundable/non-transferable application fee and the online application are due by 5pm EST on Monday, March 25, 2013. Additional information on Room Selection (Phase 2), which begins Monday, April 15th, is available on the Residential Life and Housing Services website (click here) or by calling 212-998-4600 (M-F, 9am-5pm, EST) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
NYU OVER SPRING BREAK
Although classes are not in session during Spring Break (March 18-24), the University will be open for business, including all residence halls. Note that some offices and services will have reduced hours. Dining halls will also have reduced hours (click for hours). To assist students on campus during Spring Break, the Student Resource Center will provide a "Spring Break Guide" to students that will include office hours, programming, and other helpful information just before the break
NYU STUDENT LINK - Find it Faster!
Now available to the University Community, Student Link serves as a "link" to essential student services, important dates and deadlines, and commonly searched topics on such things as registration, transcripts, bills and refunds, financial assistance, student housing, your NYU Card, student health, global services, student employment and many others. Bookmark www.nyu.edu/studentlink
Did you know that travel resources and discounts available to the NYU Community are also available to parents? The NYU Traveler website was designed to be used for travel both locally or around the world. Click for more information.
THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2013
During Spring Break, students should begin to receive information from their school and the university about graduation activities. For students currently enrolled in classes, information will be mailed to their local address on record. For those students who graduated last summer or this past December, information will be mailed to their permanent address on record.
Additional details will also be sent to their NYU email address. Note that students are invited to at least three celebrations -- their school-specific ceremony, an outdoor celebration entitled "Grad Alley", and the all university Commencement at Yankee stadium. For more information on these events, visit www.nyu.edu/commencement.
OFF CAMPUS LIVING
A student's decision to live off campus is one that should not be taken lightly. Searching for an apartment in New York City can be challenging, and the apartment hunting process is often bewildering for even long time New Yorkers. The NYU Student Resource Center is available to answer questions and provide resources relative to the search process. Although the University does not provide actual apartments, we provide an online-list of commonly used websites for apartment searches, a roommate registry, NYC market information, and referral information for housing related issues. But be prepared -- it's not easy. Visit www.nyu.edu/housing/offcampus.
STUDYING AWAY with NYU
If your student is considering or preparing to go on a Fall 2013 semester away program, you are probably feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness. A great resource is the Parents' Page of the Study Away Website. Additionally, you can read about your students' study away location by choosing the city on the NYU Study Away website. If your student is living on campus and wondering what to do with their stuff while they are away, the Student Resource Center has put together a list of storage, moving, and shipping resources to assist with the process. Click here for more information.
It's not too late for students to consider studying away. Online applications are still available. The deadline is March 15th, and applications are still being accepted for all NYU programs; Abu Dhabi, Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Washington DC.
A wide range of classes (including more than 20 programs abroad) are offered from May to August for students who want to fulfill degree requirements, explore new areas of interest, or accelerate their degree program. For more information on dates, courses, fees, and housing, go to www.nyu.edu/summer.
Summer Housing is also available for students taking classes, and limited housing is available for students who are staying in New York, but not enrolling in classes. For more information on the application process, rates, and facilities, go to www.nyu.edu/summer/housing.
Although we're still several months away, it's not too early to begin thinking about the end-of-year transitions. Students living on campus will usually begin the move-out process during exam week (May 15-21), and for some, it could even be prior to the exam period. Students who are not staying in summer housing or graduating are expected to move out within 24 hours of their last final exam. For students who will remain in housing during the summer, information will be provided regarding their transition to their new space once their room becomes available.
