Living on campus is only available to students participating in NYU Precollege in summer.  Campus housing is not available to students studying in the fall or spring terms.

Students who live on campus in the summer are housed together in a residential hall on NYU’s Washington Square campus. Students are encouraged to sign up for housing by the deadline as space is limited and available first-come, first-serve. NYU’s residential halls are co-ed, and each room or suite will have its own bathroom. Lounges are available for student study spaces and socializing, and each hall has a laundry room.

Applying for Housing

Students who are admitted and accept their spot in the program will receive information about completing required program forms via email. Among those forms is a housing license, which serves as a student's housing registration. Submitting the housing license as a part of your program forms reserves your campus housing. The deadline to submit your housinglicense is June 1.  Students and families with questions about housing may contact NYU Housing at or 212-998-4600.

Move-In and Move-Out

Summer 2023 Dates

    Move-in: Wednesday, July 5
    Move-out: Wednesday, August 16

Students cannot move into the residence hall before move-in day. If you arrive in New York City before the program begins, you should find your own accommodation in the city.  Students are also not allowed to extend their stay beyond move-out day.

The residential hall opens at 9:00 am on move-in day.  Students are advised to arrive no later than 3:00 pm to allow for enough time to settle into their rooms before any evening activities begin.

Move-out day is also the last day of class.  Students are welcome to move out after their last class ends.  Once registered in classes, students can view their class schedule in NYU Albert.

Campus Dining

Students will automatically enrolled in a meal plan that gives them 10 meals per week plus dining dollars they can use to purchase drinks, food, and snacks at dining locations. Students may sign up for a larger meal plan at an increased cost if they choose. Dining halls will be available to students seven days a week.  More information about summer dining, including how to change a meal plan, is available online.

Residential Hall Staff

Each hall floor has its own Program Assistant (PA), a NYU college student who will be the students’ main resource and guide during the program.

The residence hall is led by a team of professional administrators who oversee building operations, supervise the PAs, help plan and execute the events and activities offered during the summer, and serve as an important resource for students whenever they have a question or need.


Living with someone else, getting to know your roommate, and learning how to respectfully share your space is one of the great benefits of living on campus as a college student. Because of limited space in the residential hall and the goal of the residential experience to allow students to broaden their experiences and meet new people, students are not allowed roommate requests.


All students living on campus must check-in to their residential hall no later than 11:00 p.m. each night, and students may leave the hall after 7:00 a.m. each day. All students must be in their rooms and adhere to quiet hours at 1:00 a.m. nightly. Students are required to submit their NYUCard to the residence hall front desk each night by curfew in order to be in compliance.

Evenings & Weekends Away

Parents and guardians must submit advance notice if a residential student will be off-campus overnight or over a weekend. The Overnight Leave Form can be found in the NYU High School Programs Handbook (under Residential Rules and Policies). Requests are due at least 48 hours in advance of the student’s time away.

Visitors & Guests

Students are not allowed to have guests, including friends and family. Guests are only allowed into the building on move-in and move-out days. Anyone visiting a student during the program is welcome to meet them in the residential hall lobby.

Leaving Campus

NYU does not have an enclosed campus. While students will be accompanied by program staff while on program-sponsored events, students can leave campus on their own during their off time if they choose. More information about the policies and rules for leaving campus is available in the NYU High School Programs Handbook. Students, parents, and guardians are encouraged to carefully review the Handbook and discuss among themselves expectations for off-campus travel and safety in the city.
