Housing for Faculty

At NYU, faculty housing is a critical strategic resource that has supported NYU’s development into a national research university. Nearby housing helps to create a feeling of campus by bringing faculty, staff, and students together. It supports the academic mission of the University by increasing accessibility of faculty members to their students, their colleagues, and their research tools. Although NYU’s rental resources are substantial, they are not sufficient to address all housing needs. University housing is allocated to faculty and staff in a manner designed to support, recruit and retain the full-time faculty of the University according to University priorities informed by the deans of the schools and colleges. University policies on Faculty Housing govern the allocation of housing: The highest priority is to house tenured and tenure track faculty, and among them, new faculty who will be joining NYU and who do not have housing in the metropolitan area. Almost equal priority is given to existing faculty who are of high retention importance as determined by the deans of each school. Additional information about faculty housing can be obtained at the web page of the Office of Faculty Housing and Residential Services, which is the comprehensive housing resource for NYU faculty.1 Any questions should be addressed through the individual school dean’s offices.

Service Recognition Awards

Full-time faculty will receive service recognition gifts upon completion of 10 years of service to the University, and every five-year milestone thereafter through 50+ years. The University also will present a certificate to every member of the faculty who has given 25 years of full- and/or part-time service to the University.

Travel Policies

Information about University policies and guidelines concerning travel and reimbursement rates is included in the NYU Travel and Expense Policy. All faculty are encouraged to use NYUTraveler, which was created to provide the NYU community with tools and services for their travel needs and to help keep them safer. 

Verification of Employment at NYU

NYU provides a secure way for current and former employees to authorize third party verifiers to confirm their NYU employment (dates of employment and positions held) and salary information, as applicable, as detailed in the NYU Employment Records and Verification Policy.2
