Residence Hall Accommodations
Short-term conference programs will be housed in unadorned air-conditioned student dormitory rooms in locations near the Washington Square campus. Most conference groups are housed in Founders Hall.
If the designated short-term conference residence halls are not available, NYU reserves the right to assign a group to a different residence hall based upon space availability.
All short-term accommodations offer:
- Air-conditioned, shared occupancy bedrooms for two occupants and single occupancy bedrooms in shared suites with up to two bedrooms (up to four residents in each suite)
- An in-suite bathroom
- Wireless internet service
- Bedrooms furnished with an extra-long twin bed, dresser, desk & chair.
- Limited overhead lighting in each bedroom
- Bedding (sheets, pillow & blanket) and towel
Additional furniture may not be brought into the halls. Smoking is not permitted in NYU Residence Halls.
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.
Safety & Security
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. Short-term residents are not able to have guests in the Residence Hall.
Residence Hall Staffing
All buildings are staffed with a full time, professional, live-in Residence Hall Director, assisted by a team of professional and paraprofessional staff.
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.
