Fall 2016 Check-In Procedures

Welcome to NYU School of Law housing!

Residents may check-in anytime (24 hours a day) after 8:00 a.m. on their confirmed academic year license start date. Please note the following:

  • The academic year license period will begin on August 27, 2016 for all but JD1 students.
  • The academic year license period for JD1 students will begin on August 24, 2016. All JD1 students are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, and will be charged the appropriate early arrival rate (August 24 to August 27, 2016).

Residents with a confirmed Early Arrival (An arrival prior to the start of the Academic Year License periods as noted above) may check-in anytime after 9:00 a.m. on the date confirmed, or the time noted on your confirmation.

The Front Desk will have your check-in packet; however please be advised that rolling bins for unloading your car and moving large items (Mercer Residence and D'Agostino Hall) are only usable until 11:00 p.m. due to the excessive noise they create. The Front Desks are open 24 hours a day.

Valid photo ID (license, passport, NYU ID Card, etc.) must be presented when you check-in.

For more information regarding what you should and should not bring when living in one of our residential building please take a look at our Building Guide and Policies page.


Arriving By Car

Being in the middle of New York City, parking is not provided. Large rolling bins are available to assist with moving your items from the car into the building. We recommend "live" parking in front of the building (someone should always remain with the car) while you unload. There are several parking garages in the area.

Computer Hook Up

For all on-line services, residents must register their computer with the School of Law’s Office of Information Technology. ResNet instructions for residents of D’Agostino Hall and Mercer Residence will be included in your check-in packet. Each bedroom has a ResNet connection. "ResNet", offers an uninterrupted high-speed ethernet connection to the Internet in the Mercer and D'Agostino residence halls.  As noted in our materials, only the licensee (not the family housing resident) is provided with ResNet access.

The WiFi network in D’Agostino and Mercer Residential Halls provides wireless access to each room throughout the entire building, in addition to the in-room ResNet ethernet connections. 

Contact the Department of Information & Technology Services with any questions you may have.

Residents of 130 MacDougal Street may personally contract with a local provider for internet service.

Property Insurance

As a reminder, the University does not provide property insurance. Please make arrangements for insurance if you are not already covered under another policy.
