The University provides each resident with a bed, twin mattress, desk, desk chair, drawer space, and closet/wardrobe space. Storage space in student rooms is extremely limited (usually just a small closet/wardrobe, dresser, and under bed space), so please don't overpack. You may also want to coordinate bringing larger items with your roommates where possible.
The following items may be needed, depending on personal preference, in all residence halls unless otherwise indicated in the information about your specific residence hall in the residence hall pages:
There is no storage space for students' use in public areas of the residence halls. Please do not bring more personal property than you can keep within your room. Students may not store belongings in the residence halls during the summer. Students who need or wish to store belongings during the summer are encouraged to use local commercial storage facilities.
NYU is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items. If you are not currently covered by your family's homeowner's or renter's insurance, you may want to consider purchasing a policy.
One vendor that provides this type of insurance policy can be found at www.collegestudentinsurance.com/
