How to Apply

When applying, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the types of accommodations we offer, as well as our policies and procedures regarding initial payment and canceling your reservation. As part of your application, you will be required to review and agree to the terms and conditions of the 2020 Summer Housing License.

1. NYU Global Home Account Registration

Non-NYU - New Applicants

If you do not have an NYU identification number, you will need to generate an NYU ID number and create an NYU Global Home account. This process typically takes two to three business days to complete. Register for an NYU ID number HERE.

Non-NYU - Returning Applicants

If you are not an NYU student but you have stayed in NYU Summer Housing in the past, you must complete the NYU ID registration to reactivate your NYUHome Account. This process typically takes 24 hours. Activate your NYU ID number HERE.

Current NYU Students & Enrolled Applicants

Current NYU students do not need to register for NYU Global Home accounts. Please visit the Current NYU Students page for more information. Applicants enrolled in courses at NYU should receive NYU ID numbers and NYU Global Home access through their enrollment process.

If you are enrolled in a non-credit NYU SPS course this summer and have a problem accessing the NYU Summer Housing application, please email our office at housing@nyu.edu.

2. Apply Online


We are not currently accepting applications for Summer 2020.

3. Application Reservation Payment

Applicants are required to submit a $500 reservation payment with their application for Summer Housing.

The $500 reservation payment will be credited to the applicant’s account and will count towards overall summer housing costs. Please note, all requests to cancel NYU Summer Housing are subject to a cancellation fee.

Applicants may submit payment online or by mailing in a check or money order. Applications are not complete until payment is received.

Applicants must provide their checking account number as well as their bank’s routing number (both of these numbers can be found on a blank check).

Please note that upon entering payment, your checking account will be debited for the payment amount. If NYU Summer Housing is unable to offer housing, the payment will be fully refunded.

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, New York University will provide reasonable accommodations for an individual eligible to reside in University housing who has a qualifying physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such an impairment or is regarded as having such an impairment.

For information about submitting a reasonable housing accommodation application, please visit the NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities website.

The deadline for summer residents with a confirmed reservation to submit documentation to the Moses Center is March 30, 2020. Documentation submitted after this date will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants Under 18

Applicants under the age of 18 are eligible to apply provided they will be actively participating in an NYU sponsored high school program during their residency. For more information about these programs, please visit our High School Programs website.

At a later time, depending on the NYU programmatic affiliation, applicants under 18 may be contacted to submit a consent form completed by a parent or guardian.
