Summer Housing Overview

Apply for NYU Summer Housing

We are currently accepting applications for Summer 2021. We can accept late check-ins and early check-outs, however, students will be charged for the full six week session (July 4 - August 14) regardless of actual dates of stay. For more information, and application instructions, please visit the ‘How to Apply’ page on our website here.


Living in NYU Summer Housing does not require enrollment at NYU. Current NYU students are guaranteed on-campus housing during the summer as long as they complete a Summer Housing application and pay the required $500 reservation payment.

Affiliated Applicants

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. Students who do not meet these criteria are considered Non-Affiliated.


Summer Housing is available from Sunday, May 23, 2021 through Saturday, August 14, 2021. NYU students can opt to stay for the whole summer or for Summer Session I or Summer Session II. Please see the summer housing calendar here. Current Spring 2021 residents with Summer Housing stays beginning Week 1 will receive transition instructions from their residence halls.


The Summer 2021 rates are per person, per week. Summer housing rates can be found here.

Summer Meal Plans

All residents assigned to a traditional residence hall will be assigned to the 8 meal plan (8 meals and $30 Dining Dollars per week). Residents assigned to a traditional hall must maintain a meal plan.

Not all dining halls are open during the Summer Session; however, NYU Dining still offers a variety of options. All dining locations accept cash, credit cards, Campus Cash, and Dining Dollars.

Please visit the Summer Housing dining page for information about summer meal plans, weekly rates, and hours.

Changes and Cancellations

Residents may cancel their summer housing reservation at any time prior to summer check-in, but will be assessed a cancellation fee. For more information, please visit the Summer Housing cancellation page here.
