Resource Centers

Fall 2020 - Spring 2021:

Every residence hall typically has its own resource center open 7 days a week, 12pm-8pm during the academic year, and 9am-9pm during the summer. Holiday hours may vary. 

Resource Center services may include:

  • Information about the residence hall, procedures, services, and activities
  • Check in and check out
  • Maintenance Requests
  • Key return or replacement
  • Mail and package pick up

Check with the Resource Center at your hall for a complete list of amenities.

Mail & Package Services

Recommended mailing address format (do not include the residence hall name or NYU):

[Student Name]
[Hall address], [room #]
[New York or Brooklyn], NY [hall zip code]

Shipping packages before arrival: Do not send boxes or packages for arrival at your residence hall before you check in. You will receive notice when your package has arrived and information about picking it up.

Maintenance & Repairs

Report maintenance concerns to the residence hall Resource Center or through the FCM online work request service. Service Request forms should be submitted at the first sign of a problem.

If you live in Clark Street in Brooklyn, please submit this EHS work request form (please do not submit the online FCM work request form above). You can also go to the front desk to submit a service request. If the desk is closed, please contact the RA on duty in case of an emergency.

If there is damage in your room, do not repair it yourself. Skilled University repair personnel will remedy the situation. If your neglect or actions have created the need for repair, you will be charged for the resulting costs. General preventative maintenance and routine repairs are performed without charge to residents. Emergency repairs include major leaks and flooding, inoperative door locks, and any problem that endangers property or safety. In case of an emergency, contact the front desk or any member of the residence hall staff immediately.

Please note: The Office of Residential Life and Housing Services reserve the right to enter student rooms for emergencies, health and safety inspections, and general maintenance purposes. Since NYU residence halls are in service 12 months of the year, it may be necessary for the facilities staff to do painting or other work in your room during your occupancy. Every effort will be made to notify residents of such work in advance.

Room Painting/Construction

Students are not permitted to paint their rooms. Individual rooms are painted by the Housing Facilities Department on a rotating basis. If a room is to be painted while occupied, the resident will be notified in advance. Lofts or other structural modifications to an assigned residence hall space are prohibited.
