Update as of March 23, 2020:

  • All Residence Halls have closed for general student use for the Spring 2020 term, effective March 22nd, per President Hamilton's email to the NYU community.
  • The 2020-2021 Waitlist housing application will launch on March 25th instead of March 16th.
  • Access to Fall 2020 and Summer 2020 housing applications has been temporarily suspended until late on March 23rd in order to provide maximum system bandwidth for all Spring 2020 needs.  
  • Phase 1 of housing reapplication for 2020-2021 will be further extended to March 27, 2020.

New first-years admitted through NYU's Undergraduate Admissions Office, and returning undergraduate residents, are guaranteed housing for their entire education at NYU, provided they accept housing upon admission, maintain matriculation, meet all housing application and payment deadlines, and do not cancel their NYU-NY housing for reasons other than a school-approved medical leave or study away program. By meeting these criteria, these students maintain their housing guarantee and are considered to have a “renewable housing status”, which indicates that these students are able to renew their housing contract each year. Undergraduate students who have not met these criteria above have a non-renewable housing status and are not guaranteed housing.

Returning undergraduates who miss application deadlines, graduate students, and new transfer students are considered to have a non-renewable (non-guaranteed) housing status, and will only be offered housing based on space availability.

IMPORTANT: Students with guaranteed housing status are guaranteed placement in University provided housing.  They are not guaranteed their preferred residence hall, room type, room rate, or roommates.
