The housing application is accessible through NYU Home (type “Housing Forms” into the search box) or by using the housing portal (you will need to log into your NYU account to access the application). Either way will lead you to the same housing application.

Meal Plans and Campus Cash

Students will automatically be enrolled in a 10 meals-a-week plan with their NYU ID Card, Monday through Sunday and $30 dining dollars per week, which can be used at local vendors. Students who want the option of upgrading their meal plan to include more meals per week should read this post. If you have any questions about food allergies or special dietary needs, you can consult with NYUDining.

Students can bring a debit card, cash, utilize campus cash or use a combination of these options to pay for additional purchases. NYU Campus Cash is a convenient and easy program that allows the use of the NYUCard as a debit card on and around campus. Campus Cash is a separate account established by completing a Campus Cash contract. It is accepted at the NYU Bookstore, NYU Health Center, select vending machines, and all Campus Dining facilities. Please note that dorm laundry machines will only accept Campus Cash. Campus Cash is also accepted at over 95 local merchants around the campus and residence halls. Students will need their NYU ID number and their net ID to activate a Campus Cash account on the NYUCard website.

For those students looking to receive a refund for campus cash they do not use during the length of the program, please go to Campus Cash Account Refund .

Residential Life Policies

Students are responsible for reading and adhering to all Residential Life policies. Please note that students will have a curfew of 11pm Sunday through Thursday and 12am Friday and Saturday. Students are also not allowed to have guests in the residence hall under any circumstances.

Residential Life Events and Activities

While the program is very intensive, there will be several opportunities for students to participate in activities and outings throughout the city! A student’s academic program may have visits to Broadway shows, or museums, but students will also have a chance to sign up for Residential Life events. Past events included excursions to Coney Island, Governor’s Island, concerts, movie screenings and baseball games.

The cost of Residential Life events is covered by the program fee all students pay.  Cost does not cover transportation to and from campus or any additional personal expenses, such as food or souvenirs.

Students are given notice of when particular Residential Life activities will take place during the program via their NYU email and may RSVP to events of interest.  Space on particular events may be limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.  Wait-lists and rush spaces will be available to ensure as many students as possible attend an event who wish to participate. Students who sign up for an event and then are not able to attend must give 24 hours notice to the sponsor of the Residential Life event or activity.

NYU has many services to support student life. Please note some of the hours and services are limited during the summer.
