NYU Resources and Services for Incoming Students

NYU Welcome

NYU's 'Welcome' programs occur at the start of both the fall and spring semesters and are intended for new first year and transfer students, as well as students visiting NYU Washington Square.


Planning to be on-campus for the fall? Contact Residential Life and Housing Services for information about check-in requirements and materials including keys, room inventory reports, area attractions, as well as residence hall policies, procedures and amenities.

  • When will I receive my housing assignment? 

In July, students receive "Move-In Day" instructions, including infomation about state-mandated quaratine and a specific move-in appointment time. Contact Res Life if you have not recieved this information.

What is move-in day like?  

Students must move-in accordining the instructions provided with their housing assignment, so keeping with the assigned time is essential.  Staff will be on hand to assist with unloading cars, parking directions, and carts.  To make the process a bit smoother, remember that many items can be purchased in the city or delivered to the residence hall after the student has moved in.  Visit the NYU Welcome Day page for more information.
