Inbound Exchange: Student Life & Housing

On-Campus Housing
On-Campus housing is not guaranteed, and is offered on a very limited, space-available basis.

Off-Campus Housing
Most exchange students choose to live off-campus. Students seeking non-University housing opportunities can use the resources provided by NYU’s Center for Student Life.

Exchange students have access to NYU Sports Facilities and the NYU Library.

Health Insurance
Health insurance is a requirement of the University and is a necessity in the U.S.A. because of the very high cost of healthcare. Typically, students are automatically charged for the NYU sponsored Comprehensive Insurance Plan upon registration for classes. Students should verify their enrollment through the Student Health Center, particularly in the rare case that they are not on a J-1 visa. Students remain enrolled in that plan unless they complete the waiver process or downgrade their NYU plan before the appropriate semester deadline. More information and instructions will be shared with nominated students.

The Global Education team offers academic advising to all exchange students.

Student Clubs
Stern has approximately 40 student-led professional and community clubs. MBA exchange students are encouraged to participate in these associations during their semester at Stern.

Career Services
The Stern Office of Career Development provides limited career assistance to exchange students during their semester at Stern. Services may include walk-in career coaching appointments, access to Career Account, which includes off-campus job postings, and access to the Career Resource Hub. Students are also permitted to attend the MBA career fair in the fall or spring semester. MBA exchange program students do not have access to recruiting services, on-campus corporate presentations, the alumni contact system, interview facilities, and the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development.

Computer Services
All full- and part-time MBA students and are required to have a notebook computer. Stern strongly recommends that incoming exchange students own a computer with Internet capability.
