The Faculty Housing Office is a comprehensive housing resource for University faculty. The office works directly with the Deans, faculty, senior staff and other University constituents on all housing matters. The office assigns housing units, sets lease terms, manages residential facilities and construction, and oversees homeownership programs.
The Client Service Center (CSC) is open to receive work requests by phone or email 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., except University holidays. In addition, you may use the website 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for routine maintenance work requests. CSC will dispatch all routine maintenance work requests received after hours or during University holidays the next business day.
Important Contact Information:
For Fire or Life Safety emergencies: 911.
For Urgent Requests (such as water leaks and heat outages) please contact your building’s Front Desk, if applicable, or the nearest NYU doorman.

Sublet Service for Current Tenants
The University has a streamlined allocation process for faculty members on approved leave or sabbatical wishing to sublet their apartment during the academic year. Tenants wishing to sublet may do so after approval is received from the Office of Faculty Housing. As stated in all NYU leases, and in compliance with NYC law, tenants are only allowed to sublet their apartments for periods of 30 consecutive days or longer. Additionally, the charged rent may not exceed the tenant's rent plus a 10% surcharge for a furnished apartment and electricity charges.
Academic Year Sublets
All academic year sublets must be approved by the University and the apartment must be made available to University affiliates before being offered to the non-affiliate market. If you wish to sublet your apartment during the academic year, you may complete a Sublet Offer Form.
Summer/Winter Holiday Sublets
Tenants wishing to sublet during the summer/winter holiday may identify a subtenant without first notifying the University. However, as stated in all NYU leases, tenants are only allowed to sublet their apartment for periods longer than 30 consecutive days. Moreover, the rent charged by a tenant to a subtenant may not exceed the tenant’s rent plus a 10% surcharge for a furnished apartment. Once you secure a subtenant for the summer/winter holiday, it is required that you submit a copy of the sublease to the Faculty Housing Office for review and approval.
Faculty members interested in faculty housing must contact their school’s Dean. The Faculty Housing Office cannot process requests directly from faculty members. Dean’s offices evaluate whether a faculty member qualifies for Faculty housing based on University Policy and priorities. Once a faculty member’s eligibility is determined, the Dean will submit the housing request to the Faculty Housing Office. Housing requests received our office are then reviewed by a committee comprised of members of the University’s leadership. Since there is not enough faculty housing to meet demand, housing resources are primarily reserved for full-time tenured and tenure line faculty. Housing is also intended only as a primary residence.
A request for a housing change must be submitted by your Dean. If your request is approved, you will be shown an alternate apartment and can decide if you would like to move. There is often a significant wait for apartments, please be patient.
All requests for renovations must be submitted to the Faculty Housing Office. Each request will be carefully reviewed on an individual basis. Please note that if unauthorized changes are made, you will be responsible for restoring the apartment to its original condition before moving out.
For visiting faculty, accommodations are drawn from three sources: a small number of designated apartments, the sublet of apartments of faculty on leave; and apartments that are decommissioned pending renovation and are available for a specified (usually short) period of time.
