Roommate requests cannot be guaranteed.
Up to two roommates may be requested by each applicant. Coed roommate requests will not be accepted.
To increase the possibility of being assigned together, it is important that all roommates request the same arrival dates and assignment preferences on their application. In addition, applicants must follow the instructions provided.
Instructions for applicants requesting roommates when applying online
Applicants must submit the NYU identification number of each of their requested roommate(s)/suitemate(s) through the NYU Summer Housing application portal.
If you do not know the NYU identification number of the individual(s) you would like to live with at the time of your application, you can return to the application within 2 days of completing the application in order to submit the NYU identification number of your requested roommate(s)/suitemate(s).
Once a request has been submitted, the person you have requested to live with will receive an email and must approve the request to live together on the NYU Summer Housing application portal.
Summer Housing will make a reasonable effort to accommodate these requests even if the dates of completion vary by applicants within an online roommate grouping. Please note that if dates of completion vary by applicants requesting to live with each other, the applications will be processed based on the date the final application in the grouping is submitted.
Please note the following important information about roommate requests
An incomplete application will be held pending correction of the problem and will be separated from other applications it has been grouped with. For example, if two people submit applications requesting to live with each other, and one of the applications is not complete, this application will be separated from the complete application.
If space becomes limited and not all roommates are enrolled for summer courses, roommate applications may be separated with applications from enrolled applicants processed before non-enrolled applicants.
Please note that rooms are assigned shortly before a resident's arrival. If you are assigned to the same building as your requested roommate(s), this does not mean you have been assigned together.
Due to variation in room size and occupancy, it is possible that requested roommates may be assigned to the same suite, but not to the same bedroom as each other.
