Neighborhood Resources

Almost everything you would ever need can be found within walking distance of most campus buildings.  To help with your navigation of the area, the Student Resource Center has complied a list of banks, supermarkets, stores, and other businesses that are within the vicinity of NYU's campus. 

We are often asked whether it is better to store belongings over the summer in New York or to mail or drive them home. The answer is, it depends on your individual circumstances:  the distance home, the amount of material to be moved, whether you prefer to spend money or time, whether your student will need access to belongings over the summer, and other factors.

Lightly-used boxes can often be obtained for free or at low cost from local stores or by searching  

Residence Halls will often collect unwanted electronics, clothes, home goods, food, and other items to be recycled or donated at the end of the year. Students should check with their building's Resource Center for more details.

Also note that students should check with their Residence Hall staff for information about local parking, best hours for check out, and short extensions of their move-out date (if necessary).
