All NYU Washington DC students are required to live in NYU-arranged housing as a condition of enrollment. Most students live in double bedrooms in a two bedroom suite. Each suite has a bathroom and kitchen. A shared living space with a television is located on each floor (bedrooms/suites to not have cable hook-up). An extremely limited number of single rooms with private bathroom are available. NYU provides security personnel at the residence. A cancelation fee may be assessed if a student's written request to cancel the housing license be approved.

Students with immediate family living in the DC area may request a housing exemption by emailing; requests must be received at least one month prior to the beginning of the term. Exemptions are rare, and must be approved by the program director.


There is no meal plan at NYU Washington DC. All students will have access to cooking facilities en suite. There will also be a concessions area on the lower level of the center -- hours of operation TBA.


Costs may include local transportation, food, and some local independent travel. All costs are estimated and may vary depending on the student's budget.

Excursions/Cultural Activities

Some excursions and cultural activities are included in tuition costs.

*The rates listed are for the 2019-2020 academic year. NYU students pay their individual school tuition, which may differ by college. Rates for the 2020-2021 academic year will be posted soon.

Disclaimer: The Board of Trustees of New York University reserves the right to alter the schedule of fees without notice.


NYU’s Electronic billing system is the official means of generating tuition bills for all enrolled students. Within a few weeks of registering for classes, students (with the exception of visiting students whose home schools choose to bill them directly for their term at NYU) will receive a message at their official NYU e-mail address notifying them that a bill for tuition, fees, and housing is now available.

Please visit the NYU Bursar Web-site for details about the E-bill process.
