Welcome to the 2016 housing guide. We crafted this with the intent that you’ll be able to start looking for your next place to live with the reassurance that you’re making the right choice. Home is where the heart is, so you’ll want to make sure that you love your home! Inside this issue, you’ll find nearly everything you need to know about the on and off-campus housing options that NYU has to offer. Each dorm has been carefully researched to give you the real facts — not just the spiel you’ll hear on an admissions tour.
In addition to profiles of each dorm, we’ve included tips and tricks on how to make your room feel more like home, the lowdown on the gender-neutral housing option and even how to navigate searching for your first apartment. These are all in here with the idea that whatever you do end up choosing, you’ll never be completely on your own.
College can be intimidating and stressful. You already have enough to worry about between going to class, handling your extracurriculars, navigating social groups and trying to sleep between it all. At the end of the day, all you’ll want is a place to come back to where you can rest your head and feel at ease. Hopefully, this guide will take a bit of the weight off your shoulders and make the seemingly endless possibilities easier to digest.
Whether you’re a senior who’s moving off campus for the first time or a freshman who doesn’t even know where to begin with the dorms, we want to nudge you in the right direction, whatever that direction might be. We hope that this guide will open the door to all that New York City has to offer you. All of life is, after all, simply coming home. This guide is your key to finding it.
