• 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 2019–2020). 

    A certain number of beds will be set aside for continuing students. They will have the opportunity to select their own rooms if they apply by the priority date. Any applications that are submitted after the priority date may be entered into the lottery in August, after new students are assigned.

    Please check back on our website in December for updates to Housing Selection. 

    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 2019–2020 Housing License Agreement.
    5. Pay the nonrefundable housing deposit of $350 (which is part of the application submission). We do not accept housing deposits transferred from Parsons Paris or other universities.

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

    Application Deadline

    You must apply by April 15, 2019, 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 15, you can start the application, but 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 if selected during the lottery in August. 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 2020.

    If you have any questions or concerns, email universityhousing@newschool.edu or call 212.229.5459.

    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 at a date in April to be announced. Please check back for updates

    Group Selection

    • Groups of students interested in filling an entire suite (four to 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 23) 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.

    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 need and prevailing standards for reasonable accommodations into consideration. You can request a special housing accommodation here.
