Frequently Asked Questions about NYU Housing
These questions were obtained from other college resources on the internet. I answered all of the questions to the best of my knowledge. However, I am not reponsible for their accuracy. Please e-mail me with any more questions at jeb434 AT nyu DOT edu.
Can you give me some information about each freshmen dorm?
Brittany - The rooms in Brittany are larger than all the other freshmen dorm rooms. It is slightly father away from Washington Square than the other traditional style dorms. Brittany does not have a dining hall.
Yes, they do. Every dorm at NYU does. Back to Top
Explorations floors are special floors in each residence hall with a special theme, which is meant to encourage "intellectual enhancement." In order to be on an exporations floor, you must apply for it when you apply for housing. For more information, visit NYU's Explorations website: http://www.nyu.edu/residential.education/community/explorations.html. Back to Top
Traditional style dorms (Brittany, Goddard, Hayden, Rubin, Weinstein) are standard sized rooms, usually housing two people.
Yes. Even though some dorms do not have air-conditioning, they all have heating. Back to Top
A low-cost triple is the same size of a double-sized room (or slightly larger) and houses three people. It is a lower-cost option. However, even if you choose to live in a low-cost triple, your choice cannot be guaranteed. Back to Top
You are only guaranteed housing throughout your whole career at NYU if you remain in on-campus housing for the whole time. For instance, if you choose to live off-campus for one semester, you will not be guaranteed to be able to return to NYU housing. Studying abroad is a special exception to this rule. Back to Top
All dorms have 24-hour security guards. No one is allowed to enter the building with being signed in by a resident. The dorms tend to be very secure but theft does occur occasionally. It is important to keep your door locked when you are not in your room. Back to Top
Residents may sign-in up to three guests for non-overnight visits at any time. Each resident is limited to six guest overnight stays per month, and no more than three consecutive nights. Roommate approval is required for any overnight guest. Back to Top
Sure. These are pictures of my dorm room in Hayden Hall:
