January Term housing is offered from January 6 to January 26, 2019, and is available for those taking classes at New York University over the January Term session.

NYU offers students registered for January Term classes at Washington Square the opportunity to live on-campus in conveniently located residence halls. Please note that housing is very limited this January Term and we will only be able to house NYU students. Visiting students should be prepared to live off-campus.


Accommodations are single or shared bedrooms (with current NYU students), in multi-bedroom traditional or apartment-style suites with bathrooms. Please note that there are a very limited number of single rooms in apartment style halls. Apartment-style suites have kitchens; traditional hall suites do not. All bedrooms are furnished with a bed, desk, and dresser for each resident. Linens and bedding are not provided.
