Based on space availability, January Term housing is offered to eligible, matriculated students enrolled for classes at New York University (New York) over the January Term session. The application launched on Friday, October 13th. The deadline to apply was Friday, December 1st.


Matriculated NYU students who are registered for January Term classes in New York are eligible to apply to live on-campus in University residence halls. Due to space limitations, only matriculated NYU students are eligible to submit January Term hosuing applications. We are unable to accommodate visiting students from other institutions. 

Priority is given to students enrolled in January-Term classes with in-person rather than online instruction, particularly those who are also commited to either Fall or Spring housing. Enrollment is verified on a rolling basis. Housing is not guaranteed and applicants will be assigned on a space-available basis.


Accommodations could be in shared or single bedrooms (with current NYU students), in multi-bedroom traditional or apartment-style suites with bathrooms. Please note that fewer than 2% of our inventory are single rooms in apartment style halls.  All bedrooms are furnished with a bed, desk, and dresser for each resident. Linens and bedding are not provided.

The application for January Term 2024 can be accessed through the Housing Forms card on NYU Home. Navigate to the Academic Year housing application and select January Term to begin the application.

Residents who only have a Fall 2023 NYU Housing license in NYC and apply for January Term may be required to relocate from their Fall 2023 housing assignment to another room. In most cases, we are able to keep January Term residents in their Fall 2023 room.

NYU students who apply to start housing for January Term and also for the Spring 2024 Term will generally be assigned to the same room for both terms, and will not have to relocate at the end of January Term.

Non-residential matriculated students are eligible to apply to live on-campus for January Term. 

January Term Housing is not available to individuals who are not matriculated NYU students.
