Short-Term Conference Housing

NYU has made the decision to close its residence halls for Summer 2020 due to COVID-19. We anticipate that we will begin to accept applications for our Summer 2021 program in late October 2020.

NYU Summer Housing provides inexpensive, short-term conference housing in New York University residence halls to organizations that meet the following criteria:

Residence Hall Accommodations

Short-term conference programs will be housed in unadorned air-conditioned student dormitory rooms in locations near the Washington Square campus. Most conference groups are housed in Founders Hall.

If the designated short-term conference residence halls are not available, NYU reserves the right to assign a group to a different residence hall based upon space availability.

All short-term accommodations offer:

Additional furniture may not be brought into the halls. Smoking is not permitted in NYU Residence Halls.

Special Accommodations

If any participants require special accommodation based on a medical condition or disability, please notify a Summer Housing representative at the time of your group request to discuss the type of accommodation needed.

Safety & Security

Public Safety

Each residence hall has 24 hour security provided by the NYU Department of Public Safety. All residents will receive a temporary ID card upon checking in. Residents will be required to present this ID card upon entry into the residence hall. Short-term residents are not able to have guests in the Residence Hall.

Residence Hall Staffing

All buildings are staffed with a full time, professional, live-in Residence Hall Director, assisted by a team of professional and paraprofessional staff.


Resource Center

Each residence hall has a resource center, which serves as the primary contact point for information, check-in, check-out, maintenance concerns, and emergencies.


Please note that all washers and dryers in NYU residence halls only accept NYU Campus Cash as payment (no cash, change, or credit cards). In order to utilize the laundry machines, arrangements must be made with NYU Campus Cash prior to the program’s arrival. Please contact NYU Campus Cash by email at for more information.


Meal services and catering may be arranged by contacting Dining Services at

Meeting Space Reservation

Meeting and event facilities are available, by reservation, at the Kimmel Center for University Life, located at 60 Washington Square South. Additional information is available on the Kimmel Center website.


Wireless internet is available throughout NYU facilities. Guests can obtain the guest User ID and Password at their residence hall resource center.

Payment Information

Coordination of group reservations and payments is the responsibility of the department or organizer. Program participants cannot make individual housing arrangements or payments with Residential Life & Housing Services.

An invoice will be sent to the group coordinator at the completion of the event including a reconciliation of each participant’s reservation dates and charges. Payment can be made by interdepartmental transfer of funds or by check.

Cancellation Policy & Timeline

Cancellation or reduction of the number of participants requiring housing must be made no later than 6 weeks in advance of the first day of your group reservation to avoid any charges.

Cancellations or reservation reductions (including no-shows) received fewer than six weeks prior to the reservation start date will result in a charge of $50 per cancellation/reduction.
