Summer Living in New York 2015 Check-In Procedures

Residents may check-in any time/day after 9:00 a.m. on their confirmed check-in date, which will be indicated in the assignment letter. The Front Desk is open 24 hours a day.  The Door Attendant will have your check-in packet; however please be advised that rolling bins for unloading your car and moving large items are only usable until 11:00 p.m. due to the excessive noise they create. Valid photo ID must be presented when you check-in.

Please be sure to take a look at our Building Giude and Policies page for more information on what to bring and what not to bring. 

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.

Identification Cards

ID Cards for those who send in the NYU Card materials prior to arrival will be located in the check-in packet.  At check-in, for those who have not submitted the ID Card materials, new residents/licensees and other adult residents on family housing applications, will be given temporary ID cards for access to their residence halls.  The cards will be valid for three days only.  All residents (licensees and other adult members on family housing applications) must get a permanent NYU photo ID from the University ID Center within three days of arrival.  Family housing residents must obtain a NYU ID Card clearance letter from the Office of Residential Life.  The permanent ID cards will be required for access to the residence halls and also for access to other university buildings, libraries, and the sports center.

We strongly recommend that residents send in a photo to the NYUCard Center in advance of their arrival so that an NYUCard can be generated and placed in the check-in packet.   Please review the instructions on the NYUCard Photo Identification Application.

Computer Hook Up

The University's ResNet service, providing Ethernet and wireless connections from student rooms and to the University computer network and the Internet, is available for the licensee in Mercer Residence and D'Agostino Hall.

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