Getting Started at NYU

Welcome to New York University. Once you are accepted to New York University,  you will start to receive a variety of mailings in the late spring and early summer.  These mailings will include information about finding a place to live, school orientations, financial aid, tuition payment, registration, Welcome Week, school orientations and registration, health resources, and much more. So be sure to activate your NYU ID, because this is the best way to stay connected and insure that you will be receiving important details and deadlines in a timely way. We hope you will use this site as a great starting point for a variety of resources that will help you succeed in your first year at NYU.

Next Stop NYU for Graduate Students

To keep you prepared and on track for a smooth arrival to NYU New York, we've created Next Stop NYU. The information on Next Stop NYU for Graduate Students provides you with what you need to know and the steps you need to take to prepare for your arrival on campus.

Graduate Student Life

The mission of the Student Resource Center's Office of Graduate Student Life is to help graduate students access information, resources, and services and make the most of the NYU experience. We function as a liaison between graduate students, their schools, and the university at large. This partnership is accomplished through programming, information dissemination, and services for the graduate student community.

Living at NYU

Graduate housing space is limited and not guaranteed. Housing for new and returning graduate students is available only through the Graduate Housing Wait List. The Graduate Housing Wait List will be available via the Housing Forms channel at NYUHome beginning in mid April. Offers of housing from the wait list will begin in mid June and continue on a rolling, space available basis.  Please note that the NYU School of Law and the NYU School of Medicine, have separate housing facilities.

Many graduate students also live off campus.  For helpful resources, including an exclusive housing registry,  visit the Off Campus Services Office at the Student Resource Center.
