  • Applications must be entered/submitted by the individual who is applying to live in NYU Law housing. 
  • The SLNY program runs from May 26 to August 3. Priority will be given to those who apply for the maximum stay of 10 weeks. The minimum length of stay is 4 weeks. Shorter stays (4 weeks minimum) will be considered based on availability of space.
  • Housing Assignments are made based on the date the application is received and length of stay requested. Submitting an application does not guarantee placement. For those applying for the full 10 weeks, assignments will be emailed in mid-March. For those applying for less than 10 weeks, assignments will be emailed by mid-April. 
  • Individuals applying for studio occupancy units will be assigned by the completed date of the application. Applications for family units, due to the fact that the demand for these types of apartments exceed the supply, will be assigned by the completed date of the application and duration of stay.

The plan should provide outpatient benefits in the New York City area (including coverage for office visits, outpatient mental health benefits and laboratory and radiology procedures). Coverage limited to emergency care does not meet this requirement. The maximum benefit payable under the insurance plan should be at least USD $250,000.00 per condition. Applicants must confirm that they have health insurance that includes the above recommendations, or other financial resources to cover their health needs while in NYU summer residential housing.
