Pack up and remove ALL personal belongings & trash from your space.
Failure to do so will result in a minimum $150 fine!
After packing ALL personal belongings and removing all trash, go to the Resource Center to request a room inspection. A staff member will come to your room to verify that the room is ready for check-out & check for any damages.
Note: Although we will try to inspect your room right away, please allow for a 1-hour wait when requesting a room inspection
Once your room has been inspected, your items are out of the space, and you are ready to leave Weinstein Hall, please bring your NYU ID Card & ALL keys to the resource center
Get your room inspected during the previous evening before the RC closes & upon your departure from the building utilize the express check-out box–located in the lobby near public safety. Upon completing these envelopes, place your key and NYU ID card inside it and drop it in the box.
REMINDER: Unlike check-in, parents/family/friends will not be allowed past the lobby of Weinstein for check-out. Be prepared to bring items down to the lobby yourself or ask the Resource Center to borrow a cart to make transfer easier.

A Reminder About Transcripts


All grades will be posted by late August, but academic transcripts are not automatically sent at the end of summer. If students would like an academic transcript, they can make a request by:

  • Visiting the Registrar’s Office located at the Student Services Center (25 West 4th Street)
  • Mailing or faxing a letter to University Registrar
  • More information can be found on the registrar’s website .

Transcripts can be requested at any time. When making requests in person, photo ID must be presented. Mailed or faxed requests require the signature of the student. Only the student can make a request for his or her grades (unless the student has signed a Consent to Disclose form and sends a copy of the form with the transcript request).

Please note that any students who have not completely paid all charges attributed to their program will not be able to request a transcript until their Bursar account is settled. Students with questions about their account should contact the NYU Office of the Bursar at  (212) 998-2806 or bursar.studentaccounts@nyu.edu . Please include the student identification number or Nnumber in the email correspondence or have it ready when calling the Bursar Office.

If you still have access to your NYU Home account, you can try to access your grades through the Student Center in ALBERT on NYU Home:
  • Go to home.nyu.edu
  • Pick the Academic Tab
  • Click on Albert Login
  • Enter the Student Center
  • Choose GRADES from the drop down menu under Academics
  • Pick the term Summer 2017 to see grades

REMINDER: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires all international students with a J-1 or F-1 visa to report their arrival at NYU to the Office of Global Services (OGS).  OGS will host a check-in to help you meet this requirement. Check-in will take place on Monday, July 10th at 5:30pm at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway, 12th Floor, Dean’s Conference Room (conference room at the end of the long hallway).

All international students must attend and should arrive at least 15 minutes in advance.

Required documents to bring to check-in:

    • Or print-out of “Not found” page from CBP.gov/I94
  • I-20 or DS-2019

Failure to check-in may jeopardize your ability to legally remain in the United States.  Information about the mandatory check-in is online at the OGS website.

Reminder: Check-In

Check-in Information

All students must arrive on Sunday, check-in day.

Preparing For the Hot Weather


During your program you’ll be spending time outdoors; shooting, traveling to classes or going to events. Here’s some great tips from University Programs to deal with a NYC summer:

Drink WATER: Stay hydrated throughout the day. Bring a water bottle with you to both class and events. You’ll be happy to have some H2O no matter where you go!

Wear sunscreen and sunglasses: Don’t be fooled. Just because you’re spending your summer in the city and not the beach doesn’t mean you won’t get burned by the sun. If you expect to walk around the city on a sunny day, make sure to put some sunscreen on your face, arms, and legs. Risking a day in the sun without sunscreen may result in a lobster-red sunburn–don’t let this happen to you!

Wear light and light-colored clothes: As we all know, dark colors absorb heat and light colors reflect it. Keep that in mind when getting dressed in the morning.  Also, leave the dense, heavier clothes at home and be sure to wear something that breathes.

Take a break: Feeling the heat?  Don’t rush or push yourself to walk that extra ten blocks. Duck into a store or sit down in the park to rest, cool down, and re-energize before going along on your merry way.

REMINDER: July 9th Check-In Information

As a reminder, housing check-in will begin at 8:00AM on Sunday, July 9th. The residence hall will not be open before that time and you will not be able to check-in to the residence hall before July 9th. 

If you are arriving to NY before the start of the program, you must secure your own housing arrangements until  you are able to check-in on Sunday, July 9th at 8:00AM.

For your reference, please refer to the check-in information below:

Check-in Information
Students must check in on Sunday, July 9th between 8:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. at:
Weinstein Hall
5-11 University Place
(between 8th street and Waverly Place, near Washington Square Park)



There’s a little over two weeks left until the program begins on Sunday, July 9th! If you’ve been reading the posts on this blog and keeping up with all the things to do before the program starts,  then kudos to you! Here’s a few last minute reminders in case you haven’t gotten to them:

  • Register with the Moses Center – If you think you might need the assistance of the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities, please make sure to reach out to them as soon as possible and register with their office. The Moses Center determines a student’s qualified disability status and assists the student in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services.
  • Check “What To Bring” Lists – You can find the general list of items to bring for housing and other suggestions on the Pre-Arrival page. You might have also received a specific list from your department.
  • Activate your NYU NetID and Read Email – You accessed your NYUHome account in order to apply for your housing, but make sure to read your NYU email often as all communications moving forward will be done through your NYU email address.
  • Add Money to Campus Cash for Laundry – The laundry machines in the residence hall only accepts Campus Cash so you may want to add some money to your account in order to do laundry. Campus Cash also serves as a debit card for local shops around campus. For more info, visit the NYUCard link.
  • Review your Meal Plan – You automatically receive the 10 meals per week and $30 dining dollars plan, but can upgrade your meal plan if you wish. You can also do this after the program starts. Directions on how to do this can be found on the Dining Services post.
  • Move In – Yes! Move-in day is Sunday, July 9th. You must move-in between 8:00AM-1:00PM. This gives you time to get settled, grab something to eat, and pick up your NYUCard before orientation events begin at 2:30pm and continue throughout the evening.
  • Pick Up Photo ID NYUCard – The Office of Residential Life sent you a pre-arrival confirmation email to your NYU email address in June with instructions on how to submit a photo to create your photo ID NYUCard. It is best to submit your photo by July 1st in order to pick up your NYUCard on Sunday, July 9th from the NYU Card Center located at Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life (GCASL), rm 275 (this is a temporary space; permanent space is at 7 Washington Place beginning July 11). You’ll be able to pick-up your new NYUCard between 9:00AM and 4:00PM. If you did not submit before orientation day, you will have to take a photo in person on Monday, July 10th. The NYU Card Center is open from 8:00am – 5:00pm; please coordinate with your department administrator if you need to leave class early or come to class late in order to secure your NYU ID card.
  • Attend Orientation – The last thing on this list is to attend the mandatory orientation. Here you’ll meet your classmates and PAs, hear from the Residential Life staff, take a tour and meet your department heads . There’s also an event for parents who accompany you to campus. More info about the days events are found on the Orientation Day post.
