Upon arrival in the fall semester, students will check-in at their specific residence hall's Resource Center. Residential Life and Housing Services staff will be available to greet students and provide them with important check-in materials including keys, room inventory reports, area attractions, along with residence hall policies, procedures and amenities.
- When will I receive my housing assignment?
Students will receive "Move-In Day" instructions with parking information, tips on what to bring and arrival times with their room assignment. Information about roommates will be included in the housing notification which is communicated via email in July. Students will also receive a move-in appointment time and contact information of their roommate(s).
- What is move-in day like?
Approximately 4000 new students will be moving into NYU residence halls on the same day, which makes check-in exciting and very hectic. Students will receive a move-in time with their housing assignment, so keeping with the assigned time helps to make the process smoother for everyone. 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 information on the specific activities that compliment Move-In Day.
