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 students due to the high demand on campus, particularly for Fall. 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 varies between $5,440 to $11,065 per semester. For more information please see NYU Housing.
Various meal plans are available and the estimated cost ranges from $1,375 to $2,870 per semester. For more information please see NYU Dining. Students can also cook their own meals or eat in restaurants if they prefer.
Students can expect to pay approximately $700 to $800 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 $2.75 per one-way trip.
Health InsuranceHealth insurance is required by the University and is a necessity in the United States because of the very high cost of healthcare. When students are registered for classes, they will be charged automatically for the NYU-sponsored Comprehensive Plan.
The 2020-2021 year-long annual fee for students enrolled in the Comprehensive plan is an estimated $3,912
Fall semester only: $1,507
Spring semester only: $2,405 (higher because it also covers summer)
Please note that health insurance costs are estimates and are subject to change.
Students also have an option to:
Full year students: Please note once you select your insurance plan in the fall it cannot be changed in the spring. Your health insurance plan is locked in for the full year. If you want to downgrade from the Comprehensive plan to the Basic plan, you must do it by the fall semester deadline.

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 on the NYU Student Health Center webpage. The NYU Student Health Center may also contact you directly via email or regular mail about these requirements.
