• Continuing Students

    Continuing students are those living in university housing this year and all currently enrolled students who plan to live in New School student housing in New York City next year (full year 2017–2018).

    How to Apply

    Once you have all the information described above, you can begin your application for student housing.

    1. Log on to my.newschool.edu.
    2. Select the Services tab and find the housing application link.
    3. Fill out the online application.
    4. Electronically sign the 2017–2018 Housing Contract.
    5. Pay the nonrefundable housing deposit of $350 (part of submitting the application).

    Your housing application is not complete until you have made your $350 housing deposit.

    Application Deadline

    You must apply by April 14, 2017, in order to participate in the annual housing selection process. Log on to my.newschool.edu and complete and submit the online application. Be prepared to pay the nonrefundable $350 housing deposit when you submit your application.

    You cannot apply after the deadline to participate in housing selection. After April 14, you can start the application; you will be added to our wait list. If housing becomes available, you will be contacted by the Housing and Residential Education office to complete your housing deposit. We recommend that you look for alternative solutions off campus, as we may not be able to provide housing to all students on the wait list.

    Remember that this is a full-academic-year contractual obligation unless you are graduating or participating in an approved study abroad program in spring 2018.

    If you have any questions or concerns, email universityhousing@newschool.edu.

    Housing Selection

    Types of Housing Selection

    General Housing Selection

    • Those interested in simply choosing a room for themselves.
    • Those interested in living with one or two friends should choose this option.
    • General Housing Selection will be held online the week of May 1.

    Group Selection

    • Groups of students interested in filling an entire suite (four or six people total).
    • If you want to live with friends of your gender or if you wish to live in a gender-neutral environment in your suite, and can fill a full suite, you can sign up for “Pre-Selected Groups.” This means you’ll be able to pick an entire suite at Kerrey Hall or 20th Street for selection, depending on space availability at your appointment time.
    • Designate a Group Leader
      You must designate a group leader to apply online first and create a group and group name when prompted to do so. The group leader must have the complete information (full names and ID numbers) of the other students in the group. Once the leader has applied, all other members of the group can also apply. Your group will be issued a special “Group Lottery number.” The Group Leader must be present on selection day (April 25) to choose your space. When picking a suite, you must fill all the available bed spaces within a suite to qualify. Each group member will still be issued an individual lottery number for general selection in the event that your group decides not to select a suite during the pre-selected group process. 

    Housing Lottery

    • Your lottery number will determine the order in which you can select a room at room selection. Students will be assigned a specific lottery number and time to show up for housing selection. 
    • The lottery numbers are generated in chunks, based on the number of semesters in each student has lived in housing. Those who have lived in housing longer will be assigned a lower number.
