When do I arrive? Where do I go?

Sunday, July 3
NYU Precollege officially kicks off on Sunday, July 3 with move-in and orientation.

  • Move-in: Residential students should plan to move into Founders Hall between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.   If you need to arrive in New York before Sunday, you will need to arrange for your own accommodations; students will NOT be able to move into the residence hall prior to July 3.
  • Mandatory Orientation: All Precollege students, residential and commuter, must attend the mandatory orientation from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 3.  We will cover important information ranging from academic expectations, safety in the City, program policies, campus resources, and much more.  This orientation is for students. A separate parent orientation will be offered at the same time.


When do I have to leave?

Friday, August 12

  • Last Day of Class: Friday, August 12 is the last day of class, although most students will be done with classes that Wednesday or Thursday, depending on their class schedules.
  • Move-out: All students living on campus must check out of Founders Hall no later than 7:00 p.m. on Friday, August 12.  Most students will not have class that day.  If you need to remain in New York after August 12, you must arrange for your own accommodation; students will not be able to extend their stays in Founders Hall.

Did I apply for housing…and can I still apply?

As a reminder, if you are interested in living on campus, you would have indicated as much in your application for admission, and additional communication was emailed to you. If you did not answer “yes” to on-campus housing in your application, but would now like to be considered, write to university.programs@nyu.edu to let us know.  More information about Housing is available in the Housing page above.

This is a lot of information to digest, so as always, feel free to contact us with any questions!
