NYU will try to arrange housing in NYU Residence Halls for all exchange students who meet the application deadline.
NYU housing is not guaranteed for fall semester students due to the high demand on campus. In this case, NYU will provide alternate short-term housing information to students.
Visiting students are placed in apartment-style residence halls that are either within walking distance from campus or commutable via the free NYU shuttle bus.
Students cannot request a specific residence hall due to high housing demand by full-time students.
Visit the NYU Housing website for additional information.
The average cost of NYU housing for the 2013-2014 academic year varies between $7,163 - $9,521 per semester.
Various meal plans are available and the cost for the 2012-2013 academic year ranges from $1,050 to $2,290 per semester. Students can also cook their own meals or eat in restaurants if they prefer. (2013-2014 rates not yet available)
Students can expect to pay approximately $500-700 per semester.
NYU offers free shuttle buses to NYU buildings and residence halls. New York City subway and bus service is accessible to all parts of the city at $2.25 per one-way trip. Please note that this fare is scheduled to increase to $2.50 in March 2013.
Health Insurance (2013-2014 rates not yet available)
New York State has implemented immunization requirements for all university students. As a result you must submit your immunization paperwork to the NYU Health Center before you arrive at NYU. You must also bring copies of your immunization paperwork with you for your exchange semester. Students who do not submit their paperwork will not be allowed to check into NYU Housing and will also be dropped from their classes.
Please read the Health Requirements for Students. The NYU Student Health Center may also contact you directly via email or regular mail about these requirements.
All students must be vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella. Sometimes vaccinations for these three illnesses are combined into one vaccination called MMR. Other times vaccinations are given for each illness separately.
You have two options for showing proof that you have been vaccinated for measles, mumps and rubella:
1. You can have your doctor fill out and sign the student immunization record.
2. If you have separate documentation for each immunization, you can submit those forms instead of sending in the student immunization record. Forms from your doctor must be signed and/or stamped by your doctor. These forms can include:
A baby vaccination record book of your 2 MMR vaccine dates (measles, mumps and rubella) (signed and stamped)
A medical certificate from your family doctor showing your immunization information (signed and stamped)
A lab report (titers), indicating that you are immune to measles, mumps and rubella. (signed and stamped)
