Requesting Roommates

Roommate/suitemate requests cannot be guaranteed.

Each applicant may request to form a roommate/suitemate group with up to 3 other applicants. Coed roommate requests will not be accepted.

All group members should join the roommate group within 2 days. 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.

Important Note: Unfortunately, applicants cannot request roommates who already have an NYU Summer Housing assignment. Once you are assigned you may submit an assignment change request to request a roommate assigned to a different residence hall.

How to Request Roommates/Suitemates

Applicants may form roommate groups of 2, 3, or 4 members. Applicants can be part of only one group at a given time.

  • The applicant who creates the roommate group is the group leader. This applicant creates the group for others to join by establishing a group name and password. The group leader must share the group name and password with other applicants who want to join the group.

  • Additional group members (up to 3) can join the group by submitting the group name and password on the roommate group step of their application.

  • Group members must all have the same gender designation.

  • All group members should join the roommate group within 2 days.

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.

Gender Neutral Roommate Requests for NYU Students

Academic year NYU Students who have opted into the Gender Neutral Housing process may form roommate/suitemate groups for the Summer with other academic year NYU students who have also opted into Gender Neutral Housing. More information will be emailed to NYU students regarding this process.

Please Note: Gender Neutral roommate requests are not available to non-NYU applicants.

Please note the following important information about roommate requests

If an applicant joins a group but does not complete his/her application, the application may be separated from the other group members. Applicants who join a group after the 2 day joining period may be separated from the other group members.

If space becomes limited and not all roommate group members 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.
