STEP III: Lottery Applications
Please read the following information carefully.
Entering the Lottery with Apartmentmates
- While all applicants must submit a Housing Application, each group of apartmentmates should complete only one Lottery Application, together online, unless the applicants are in different class levels, i.e. JD1, JD2,. In such cases, each applicant must complete a separate Lottery Application.
- Each group of apartmentmates should complete only one Lottery Application, together online, once each apartmentmate has submitted the Academic Year Housing Application. One applicant will serve as the Primary Applicant, noting the requested apartmentmates in the Lottery Application.
- Apartmentmates in different class levels, i.e., JD1, JD2, may not apply together. In such cases, each apartmentmate must complete a separate Lottery Application.
- Each application may have up to three names on it (Primary Applicant and up to two requested apartmentmates); no students name may appear on more than one Lottery Application.
- Each group will receive one lottery number and be assigned one appointment time for the Lottery Room Draw. Applicants who freeze their apartments do not need to attend the Room Draw (see "Freezing" below).
Entering the Lottery without Apartmentmates (including those applying for Family Housing)
- Applicants may also enter the lottery on their own, requesting either a studio apartment or picking into a partially-filled apartment or the next available space at the time of your room draw appointment.
- Students who wish to be considered for a single must indicate this on their Lottery Application.
- Note that there are a limited number of single apartments available.
- Applicants have the opportunity to retain their current room. To "freeze" your room, please indicate this preference when submitting your Lottery Application. You will have the opportunity to retain your current room unless you occupy a room that has been removed from the pool of available spaces for 2013-14.
- Only one current resident per apartment may freeze the apartment.
- If your present apartmentmate(s) also wish to freeze and are in the same class level, submit a lottery application together and enter their NYU ID numbers and the bedrooms they wish to freeze within the apartment on the application.
- If you wish to freeze your current apartment, and you wish to enter the Lottery with apartmentmate(s) (not your current apartmentmates), indicate the student ID number(s) and the bedrooms they wish to occupy.
- If you wish to freeze your room but do not want to designate apartmentmates on your application, leave the space for apartmentmates' names blank.
- Applicants who freeze their apartments do not need to attend the Room Draw.
- Freezing will obligate you to retain your current apartment.
- To be without penalty, notice of cancellation must be submitted to the Department of Residence Services by April 5, 2013, or the date indicated in your initial assignment letter.
- Applicants who cancel after April 5, 2013, and prior to May 15, 2013, will be assessed a $500 late cancellation fee.
- Applicants who cancel after May 15, 2013, will be responsible for the full license period.
