Founders HallHow does housing work? : All Precollege students living on campus will be housed in Founders Hall.

What is Founders Hall?: NYU’s newest residence hall, Founders Hall is a co-ed, traditional style dorm. Combining the beautiful historical facade of Old St. Ann’s Church with brand new ecologically sustainable infrastructure,  Founders is a 26 floor building with a spacious outdoor courtyard; two TV lounges; one study lounge with computers; wifi access throughout the lobby and lounges; recycling/trash rooms on every floor; and a laundry room.  Each room has its own bathroom, and students are responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of their own space.

Who will I live with?: Precollege students will share a room with assigned roommates. Please note that we are unable to accommodate roommate requests.

Where is it located?: Founders Hall is conveniently located within minutes of both Union Square and Washington Square Park. Students will be just a short walk away from both NYU’s main campus as well as the vibrant Union Square Park (home of one of NYC’s best Greenmarkets and a major subway hub).

What will it be like?: It will be awesome! With a gorgeous new building, tons of new friends, and a great location between two great parks (Union Square & Washington Square), NYU housing ensures that NYC is your oyster while you’re here.

What if I still have questions?:  Further information about summer housing is available online.  Or, contact us.



How does NYU dining work?: Your NYUCard acts as your dining card. Students living on campus are automatically signed up for a 10-meal/week meal plan. Plans include a set number of meals and dining dollars per week. If you would like to increase your meal plan to one that provides more than 10 meals/week, you may do so by visiting the summer dining website. You may not, however, have a meal plan that is less than 10 meals/week. There is a lot of flexibility in dining; students may get meals to-go, enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet, get a Starbucks coffee on the run, or use dining dollars to buy food and snacks during off-hours.

Where will I eat?: Precollege students will have access to a variety of dining options, ranging from traditional cafeteria-style dining halls (like The Market Place at Kimmel and Weinstein Passport Dining)  to coffee shops and cafes (like Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts).

What will I eat?: NYU Dining Services offers a plethora of food choices, with many different styles of food available, including gluten-free, vegan, and Kosher options.

When will I eat?: Dining locations are open every day at various times. For information about specific location hours, check the hours of operation online.

Are meal plans available to commuter students? Yes, indeed!  As a commuter student, you can sign up for any of the available meal plans by contacting NYU Summer Housing. Information is online.

Can I change my meal plan?  Yes, you can.  Residential students are required to have at least 10 meals/week, but if you wish to upgrade your plan, you may do so by contacting NYU Summer Housing. Information is online.  Larger meal plans available to residential students are:

12 meals/week (with $30 Dining Dollars): $176.00/week
