Applying For Housing

New freshmen admitted through NYU's Undergraduate Admissions Office, and returning undergraduate residents, are guaranteed housing for their entire education at NYU, provided they accept housing upon admission, maintain matriculation, meet all housing application and payment deadlines, and do not cancel their NYU-NY housing for reasons other than a school-approved medical leave or study away program. By meeting these criteria, these students maintain their housing guarantee and are considered to have a “renewable housing status”, which indicates that these students are able to renew their housing contract each year. Undergraduate students who have not met these criteria above have a non-renewable housing status and are not guaranteed housing.

Graduate students, new transfer students, and returning undergraduates who miss application deadlines are considered to have a non-renewable (non-guaranteed) housing status, and will only be offered housing based on space availability.

IMPORTANT: Students with guaranteed housing status are guaranteed "a space" in on-campus housing.  They are not guaranteed their preferred residence hall, room type, room rate, or roommates.

Please follow the instructions below based on your classification:
