If any participants require special accommodation based on a medical condition or disability, please notify a Summer Housing representative at the time of your group request to discuss the type of accommodation needed.

Residence Hall Staffing
Each residence hall is staffed by a full-time Residence Hall Director, Residence Hall Assistant Director, and Residence Hall Resource Manager. The full-time staff are assisted by a staff of specially trained student employees.
Each residence hall has 24 hour security provided by the NYU Department of Public Safety. All residents will receive a temporary ID card upon checking in. Residents will be required to present this ID card upon entry into the residence hall.
Each residence hall has a resource center, which serves as the primary contact point for information, check-in, check-out, maintenance concerns, and emergencies.
Please note that all washers and dryers in NYU residence halls only accept NYU Campus Cash as payment (no cash, change, or credit cards). In order to utilize the laundry machines, arrangements must be made with NYU Campus Cash prior to the program's arrival. Please contact NYU Campus Cash by email at email@example.com for more information.
