In Phase 1 of the Undergraduate Reapplication and Room selection process, undergraduate students submit an online application and a nonrefundable / nontransferable $1000 reservation payment to secure housing for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Phase 1 will begin on February 26, 2018 and will be open through 5pm EST on March 9, 2018.
Students who complete Phase 1 agree to the key components of the process and are bound to the 2018-2019 Housing License. Please review the components, license and the 2018-2019 Proposed Housing Rates prior to completing Phase 1.
Students wishing to maintain their renewable housing status and/or secure housing for the 2018-2019 academic year must:
- complete the online application AND
- submit the nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment
The deadline to complete the steps of Phase 1 is March 9, 2018.
Students who do not complete Phase 1:
- will no longer be eligible for guaranteed housing and will only be eligible for housing via the non-guaranteed, non-renewable housing application process AND
- will not be eligible to participate in Phase 2: Room Selection.
Renewable undergraduate students and current Spring 2018 non-renewable undergraduate residents are eligible to participate in the Reapplication/Room Selection 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)
A non-renewable status indicates that you have not maintained a renewable status as defined above.
In addition to submitting a nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment to secure 2018-2019 undergraduate housing, students must complete the online 2018-2019 application by March 9, 2018.
To access the application, you will need to login to NYU Global Home. Select the NYU Life tab and click on the "Student Housing and Meal Plan Forms" link to gain access to the housing portal. Once in the portal, you may access the housing application by clicking on "Access Application" under Fall in New York City.
In addition to submitting the online application to secure 2018-2019 academic year housing, a nonrefundable/nontransferable $1000 reservation payment must be paid by March 9, 2018. This payment will be applied to Fall 2018 housing charges.
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 March 9, 2018:
- Your 2018-2019 academic year housing application will be canceled.
- You will only be eligible to apply for Fall 2018/Spring 2019 NYU housing through the non-guaranteed, non-renewable housing application process.
- You will not be guaranteed NYU housing in the future.

For room selection purposes the terms "sophomore", "senior", "junior", are NOT defined by academic credits earned, but are determined by the admission status a student has upon first entering the university. We presume that freshmen will need 8 semesters of housing, and that transfer students will need 4 semesters of housing. Priority for lottery will be determined by the number of anticipated remaining housing semesters.
Academic Year 2018-2019 Room Selection Priority:
Priority Group 1 (high priority - "Sophomore")
"Sophomore" is defined as a renewable student with anticipated 6-7 remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshmen in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018).
Priority Group 2 (middle priority - "Senior" & "Junior")
"Senior" is defined as a renewable student with 2-3 anticipated remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshmen in Fall 2015 or Spring 2016; Transfers admitted to NYU in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017).
"Junior" is defined as a renewable student with 4-5 anticipated remaining semesters in housing (students admitted to NYU as freshman in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017).
Priority Group 3 (low priority - "Non-Renewable")
Current undergraduate students in Spring 2018 housing that were assigned via the non-renewable housing application process.
Students may not change their priority based upon credits earned. For example a student who has been in housing for 4 semesters but is short credits giving them junior status may not be re-classified as a sophomore (or priority 1).
Students currently studying away for Spring 2018
Renewable undergraduate students who are currently participating in a Spring 2018 NYU approved study away program must complete Phase 1 by submitting an online application and paying the $1000 reservation payment by March 9, 2018 to secure NYU-NY housing for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Students who will be studying away for Fall 2018
Students who have been admitted to a NYU study away program for the Fall 2018 semester and have confirmed their acceptance with the Office of Global Programs do not need to apply via the Undergraduate Reapplication and Room Selection process. They will automatically maintain their renewable status and will be notified to apply for Spring 2019 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 Phase 1 by submitting an online application and paying the $1000 reservation payment by March 9, 2018.
If a student is admitted and confirmed into a Fall 2018 study away program after completing Phase 1, they should submit a Academic Year 2018-2019 Cancellation Request (NYU Global Home > NYULife > Housing Forms) so that we can update our records to reflect your study away status. Once you have notified us of your status, your record will be adjusted and if applicable, the $1000 payment will be credited to your Bursar account.
