Housing Reapplication & Room Selection
UPDATE: As of May 2, 2022, the reapplication and room selection process is over. The following information and related pages will remain archived here for informational purposes.
In the Returning Undergraduate Reapplication process, undergraduate students submit an online application and a nonrefundable / nontransferable $1000 housing reservation payment to be eligible to receive housing for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Please review the information below and in the application prior to completing the process.
Students wishing to maintain their renewable housing status and/or receive housing for the 2022-2023 academic year must:
• complete the online application AND
• submit the nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment
IMPORTANT: The 2022-2023 housing application will be available in the housing portal via NYU Home from March 9th until March 28th.
All dates and information are subject to change, and will be updated here as needed. If information is changed, it will be noted as "Updated" with the respective date noted.
Relevant Information & Forms
As in recent years, public health considerations and related factors impacted housing opportunities. As always, we will make every effort to accommodate every student who submits their housing application.
In the event there is a reduction in density in the housing facility associated with COVID-19 or in the event that demand for housing exceeds available supply, any payments made by you to reserve a space in student housing will be returned to you.
Important Questions & Answers
Can I secure housing if I submit my application and reservation payment after the March 23rd deadline?
No. Any student who is eligible to reapply for 2022-2023 housing must complete Phase 1 of the application process in order to secure housing for next year. If you miss the March 23rd reapplication deadline, you will only be eligible to apply for housing via the waitlist.
How likely is it to be assigned to a single/private room?
More than 97% of our rooms are shared, so there is always less than a 3% chance that a single occupancy room will be available. If living in a private room is a must, it is recommended that a student seek their own accommodations off campus.
Will I be able to select my housing assignment for the 2022-2023 academic year?
All eligible students who complete Phase 1 of the reapplication process will be eligible to participate in Phase 2 room selection. It is important to note that not all students may be able to select a specific space during Phase 2 if the number of students participating in Phase 2 exceeds the initial inventory. If a student is unable to select a space during Phase 2, they will be administratively assigned over the course of the summer as cancellations are processed.
If I am part of a verified group, are we guaranteed to be assigned to the same suite?
No. Being part of a verified group means that you are all guaranteed the same room selection date and time. The group and/or group leader will be able to select assignments based on space availability at the designated time of selection.
What happens if I decide to cancel my housing application after I submit it?
After Phase 1 of reapplication ends on March 23rd, applicants can cancel their housing commitments by no later than June 15th.
Cancellations received in the housing portal by May 15th will be charged a $500 cancellation fee.
Cancellations received in the housing portal between May 16th and June 15th will be charged a $750 cancellation fee.
After June 15th, there is no option to cancel unless you will no longer be attending NYU. Those who withdraw or take a leave of absence from NYU after June 15th will be charged a $1000 cancellation fee.
All published cancellation fees are non-negotiable and cannot be waived.
Will the residence halls be operating at full capacity for 2022-2023?
Yes. We expect that every space will be assigned in advance of the Fall 2022 term. Again, we cannot guarantee private rooms to all applicants who might want one, so if that is a must for you, we recommend that you seek your own off-campus accommodations.
