Applicants currently living in a Law School residence should indicate here if they would like to remain in their current apartment or if they would like to move into their Fall 2017 assignment, as determined in this year's housing lottery and room draw; and if their Fall 2017 assigned apartment is not available, if they would like to move into their Fall assigned building or if they would like to remain in their current apartment for the summer. Indicate "I would like to select a new summer assignment" if you do not currently live in School of Law Housing or if you do currently live in School of Law housing but do not wish to remain in your current apartment or move into your Fall 2017 assignment for the summer.

Those applicants not currently living in an NYU School of Law residence and those currently living in an NYU School of Law residence that do not want to stay in their current apartment or move into their Fall 2017 assignment should list in order of preference all choices of building, apartment type, and occupancy which you will accept. We have only a limited number of studio and one-bedroom apartments. Preferences will be considered based on availability. It is to your advantage to apply as soon as possible. If your preferences are not available, and you do not indicate that you will accept an alternate assignment, you will be placed on the waitlist.

Reasonable Accommodations

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, New York University will provide reasonable accommodations for a student eligible to reside in School of Law housing who has a qualifying physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities and has a record of such an impairment or is regarded as having such an impairment.  In order to be considered for a special housing accommodation you must complete the Special Housing Accommodation Request Form provided at the Moses Center and return it to the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities, 719 Broadway, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10003, ATTN: Special Housing Accommodations. You can also call 212-998-4980(/voice/TTY).  Information provided to the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities is kept confidential and only will be shared within the University as is necessary to evaluate the request.


Summer 2017 License Agreement

All applicants must agree to comply with the License Agreement.



Should you decide to cancel your summer housing assignment, you must do so online by April 15, 2017 to be without penalty. Unless your request to cancel or change your dates of stay is received and approved by April 15, 2017, or by the date indicated in your initial assignment letter, the license binds you to all terms for the full license period.  Cancellation receipts will be issued; it is important that you keep this receipt as proof of your cancellation for future reference.


Fees and Payments

NYU School of Law students not currently in NYU School of Law housing must submit a $1000 deposit with your application. This deposit should be submitted to the Office of Residential Life, Mercer Residence, in the form of a check made payable to New York University.

Payment for all summer housing charges must be made in full by Thursday, May 12, 2017.  Those summer residents who fail to make payment by May 12, 2017 will be unable to participate in  the course selection lottery and will be charged a $100 late payment fee.  Residents who face financial hardship should contact the Office of Student Financial Services to arrange a housing payment plan.  Residents with an approved housing payment plan will not be assessed the $100 late payment fee.

Unless your account is paid in full by May 12 you will not be permitted to participate in several important student processes. Specifically, if you have an arrears balance from a prior semester, you will not be permitted to register for courses in the Course Registration Lottery. If you have paid your balance for the prior semester but will not make the summer housing payment by the Bursar's deadline of May 12, your Course Registration Lottery requests will not be processed (even if you entered your requests on Albert).

Students who are financially obligated to the University for tuition, housing, library or other services will have a "HOLD" placed on their account until all arrears have been paid. This means the following:

1) Course Lottery and Drop/Add Registrations will not be processed
2) state bar examination will not be certified;
3) official transcript will not be printed; and
4) a diploma will not be issued.
