Relevant Information & Forms

Important Update

In light of public health considerations and related factors, we continue to navigate the housing picture for the academic year 2021-2022.  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.


Renewable undergraduate students and current Spring 2021 waitlist undergraduate residents are eligible to participate in the Reapplication process for the upcoming academic year.

A renewable status indicates that you have met all of the following requirements:

  • students accept the initial housing offer at the time of admission
  • students meet all payment deadlines
  • students meet all reapplication deadlines
  • students maintain matriculated status
  • students do not at anytime cancel their housing contract (school-approved medical leaves and NYU study away programs are the only exception)*
*In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, renewable undergraduate students who applied and paid prior the Fall 2020 deadline but subsequently cancelled their housing application are still considered renewable for the 2021-2022 academic year. This allowance is being made for the 2021-2022 academic year only.

A waitlist status indicates that you have not maintained a renewable status as defined above.


To access the application, you will need to login to NYU Home. Select the Housing Forms card to access the housing portal. Once in the portal, you may access the housing application by clicking on "Access Application" under Fall in New York City.


Online payments must be made using the Deposits tab in NYU's eSuite via Albert. Please do not use the "Make a Payment" button for your payment.

Financial Aid and Tuition Pay may not be used to cover this payment.

If payment of the $1000 reservation payment is not received by the communicated deadline:
    •    Your 2021-2022 academic year housing application will be canceled.
    •    You will only be eligible to apply for Fall 2021/Spring 2022 housing through waitlist process.

Assignment Priority

For assignment purposes, the terms Sophomore, Junior, and Senior are not defined by academic credits earned, but are determined by the Admission status a student had upon entering the University.

Academic Year 2021-2022 Reapplication Assignment Priority:

Priority Group 1 (first priority)
First priority is assigned to all eligible, renewable students who were admitted to NYU as First Years beginning in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. This does not include new Transfers who were admitted for those terms, even if they are considered first years academically.

Priority Group 2 (second priority)
Second priority is assigned to all eligible, renewable students who were admitted to NYU as First Years beginning in Fall 2019 or Spring 2020. This does not include new Transfers who were admitted for those terms, even if they were considered first years academically.

Priority Group 3 (third priority)
Third priority is assigned to all eligible, renewable students who were admitted as First Years prior to Fall 2019 or admitted as Transfers beginning in Fall 2019 or Spring 2020.

Priority Group 4 (fourth priority)
Current undergraduate students in Spring 2021 housing that applied and were assigned via the waitlist process.

Please note:  Students may not change their priority based upon credits earned or academic status.

Study Away

Students who will be studying away for Fall 2021

Students who have been admitted to an NYU study away program for the Fall 2021 semester and have confirmed their acceptance with the Office of Global Programs do not need to apply via the Undergraduate Reapplication process. They will automatically maintain their renewable status and will be notified to apply for Spring 2022 NYU-NY housing in November.

Students who are unsure of their study away status but wish to maintain their NYU-NY renewable housing status should complete Reapplication.

If a student is admitted and confirmed into a Fall 2021 study away program after completing Reapplication, they should submit an Academic Year 2021-2022 Cancellation Request (NYU Home > NYULife > Housing Forms) so that we can update our records to reflect your study away status.
