Living in NYU Summer Housing does not require enrollment at NYU, however, priority is given to applications from academic year NYU students and applicants registered for credit and non-credit summer courses at NYU.

Applicants fall under the following categories:

Affiliated Applicants

Academic Year NYU Students:

During the summer, most NYU students are considered affiliated as long as they are either continuing Fall 2021 NYU students or, if not enrolled for the Fall, are taking an NYU course, working for NYU, or participating in an NYU program during the summer.

Non-NYU Applicants:

Non-NYU applicants are considered to be NYU affiliated if they are either registered for a summer course at NYU (credit or non-credit) or are participating in an NYU sponsored program during the summer. ​

To be eligible for affiliated only residence halls, residents must be enrolled at NYU or participating in an NYU program that runs concurrent with their requested dates of stay in NYU Summer Housing.

Non-NYU, Non-Affiliated Applicants

After July 4, 2021, non-NYU, non-affiliated applicants will not be able to move into NYU Summer Housing. Earlier in the summer these applicants are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and are not guaranteed housing.


Health Insurance Requirement

Non-NYU students who will not be enrolled for summer coursework at NYU are not eligible to access the NYU Student Health Center. Having access to health care while living in NYU residence halls is a requirement. This requirement is designed to ensure that non-NYU students who need urgent and preventative health and mental health care receive ongoing care and protect themselves and the NYU community.

It is highly recommended that you have health insurance coverage that meets the following criteria:

If you do not have health insurance that meets these criteria or other financial resources to cover your health needs while you are in NYU Summer Housing, you will not be able to proceed with your application.
