January Term housing is offered in January and is available for matriculated students enrolled for classes at New York University (New York) over the January Term session.  The application deadline is Thursday, December 16, 2021.

NYU offers matriculated NYU students registered for January Term classes in New York the opportunity to live on-campus in University residence halls. Due to space limitations, we are only able to offer housing to matriculated NYU students. We are unable to accommodate visiting students from other institutions. 

Please note, all January Term residents are expected to be in full compliance with the University's Covid-19 vaccination policy


Accommodations are single or shared bedrooms (with current NYU students), in multi-bedroom traditional or apartment-style suites with bathrooms. Please note that there are a very limited number of single rooms in apartment style halls.  All bedrooms are furnished with a bed, desk, and dresser for each resident. Linens and bedding are not provided.

How to Apply

You may remain in your current residence hall assignment during January Term at no additional charge, and do not need to complete an application.

All other NYU students enrolled for January Term classes:

The application for January Term 2022 is now available and can be accessed through the Housing Forms card on NYU Global Home. The deadline to apply is December 1, 2021. 

Please note that residents who only have a Fall 2021 NYU Housing license in NYC may be required to relocate from their Fall 2021 housing assignment to another room for January Term.  In most cases, we are able to keep January Term residents in their Fall 2021 room.

NYU students who apply for January Term and remain through the Spring 2022 Term will be assigned to the same room for both terms, and will not have to relocate at the end of January Term.

Non-residential matriculated students are eligible to apply to live on-campus for January Term.
