  • Continuing students are those who are currently enrolled and seeking to live in New School student housing in New York City for the spring 2022 semester. The Housing Application will be available on the housing portal for continuing students who wish to live in the residence halls for the upcoming semester on October 18, 2021. 

    Students applying for the spring 2022 semester are not eligible to apply for an academic year (nine-month) contract or a full calendar year (12-month) contract. Students interested in summer housing are eligible to apply when that process opens during the spring semester. 

    Special Housing Accommodations

    In accordance with applicable federal, state, and city disability laws, The New School's Student Disability Services office will review your request for special housing accommodations.

    Housing accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, taking the student's documented disability-related needs and prevailing standards for reasonable accommodations into consideration. Fill out the request form to request a special housing accommodation.

    While applications will still be accepted after November 19, students will be placed in spaces based on what is available. If we reach a point where all spaces are filled, we will open up the Housing waitlist for students to sign up. If you are placed on the waitlist, please be sure to look for alternative housing off campus, as we may not be able to provide housing to all students on the waitlist.
