Residence Hall Orientation

Residential Life and Housing Services wil be sponsoring a weekly information session in each residence hall to review NYU policies and procedures related to residential living.

During this 30 minute presentation, we will provide an overview about living in NYU Housing; including services available, residence hall staffing, and important policies and procedures. This is a great way to better acquaint yourself with summer living at NYU and meet your neighbors.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
