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:
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 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, Not Affiliated Applicants
Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis from non-NYU, not affiliated applicants. Non-NYU, not affiliated applicants are not guaranteed housing. For this reason, we recommend that applicants in this category apply as soon as possible.
- All applicants must be at least 18 years of age on the date their reservation is scheduled to begin and may be asked to provide proof of age.
- NYU Summer Housing is designed for individual stays. Family housing is available at the School of Law’s Summer Living in NY Program.
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:
- The insurance company should be headquartered and operating in the US, with a US claims address and customer service telephone number.
- The insurance coverage should remain in effect for the entire period of your stay in University housing.
- The plan should provide inpatient hospitalization benefits in the New York City area for both medical and mental health treatment.
- The plan must provide outpatient benefits in the New York City area (including coverage for office visits, outpatient mental health benefits and laboratory and radiology procedures).
- The maximum benefit payable under the insurance plan should be at least USD $250,000 per condition.
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.
