About Grad Housing

Housing provided by the University for graduate students generally involves two locations: Washington Square Village (WSV) and Stuyvesant Town (StuyTown). Housing for graduate students is not guaranteed and is very limited. Priority is given to first-year graduate applicants.

Please note, spaces at Stuyvesant Town are entirely reserved for specific programs, e.g. MacCracken Scholars, and are not available to the general graduate community.

WSV is just steps from Washington Square Park and the main NYU campus, while StuyTown is near Union Square.  Both areas work together to create a dynamic environment and provide graduate students the opportunity to live in an apartment complex that is home to students, faculty, and members of the greater NYC community.
