Residential Life Events and Activities

As part of each of your program’s curriculum you will be attending events, shows, and meeting industry professionals. In addition, Weinstein will host events and activities you can sign up for, as long as it doesn’t conflict with any class work or required events for your program. There will be many events including;  baseball games, Broadway shows, museum visits etc.  To ensure that students get to attend some of these events there will be a formal RSVP process sent via email.

First, two weeks before the scheduled week of events, on Wednesdays, you will receive an email at your NYU email address with information about the upcoming week’s events, from Sunday through Saturday.  The email will include a link to an online Eventbrite RSVP form and you can sign up for the events of your choosing. The RSVP system will close the following Monday by noon.

After the RSVP deadline, you will receive an email by noon on Thursday confirming your space at an event.  If you do not receive an email confirming your space for an event you wish to attend, you can always go to the Weinstein Resource Center on the day of the event and fill out a rush lottery card. Just before the group is scheduled to leave, names will be picked from the rush lottery at random to fill any space that is available.

Residential Life events are popular, and staff will make sure they provide every opportunity possible so that every student gets to attend events of interest.  Because space is limited, you might not be able to attend every single event scheduled, but you will be able to attend at least a few each week if not more!

Watch your NYU email two weeks before the program begins for the first week’s RSVP form. Please note that you won’t receive your finalized department course and curricula event calendar until your orientation on Sunday July 9th. So be prepared to have to cancel any reservations with Residential Life staff if you have a conflicting class, curricula event or class event. Events and RSVP will also be discussed at orientation if you have any questions.

Enjoy the events this summer!
