    New York City Application Deadlines

    December 1, 2018 - Priority application deadline for New York City housing for spring 2019 new admits only.

    May 8, 2019 - Priority application deadline for all fall 2019 admitted first-time students and new transfer students who submit an application by this date are guaranteed housing for fall.

    Note: The housing application is not first come, first served. As part of your application, you are asked for your preferred building and room type; however, assignments are made on the basis of other factors, including academic program and personal profile questions.

    Preparing to Apply

    Before you apply for student housing, you must

    • Be accepted as a full-time student by one of the colleges of The New School
    • Receive your New School ID number (N plus eight digits)
    • Pay your tuition deposit (where applicable)
    • Receive instructions for logging on to my.newschool.edu

    Note: The 2019-2020 academic year housing application will be available March 25, 2019.

    How to Apply

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

    1. Log on to my.newschool.edu.
    2. Select the Services tab and find the housing application link (this link may take up to a week after your tuition deposit is paid to appear).
    3. Fill out the online application.
    4. Electronically sign the 2019-2020 Housing License Agreement.
    5. Pay the nonrefundable housing deposit of $1,000 (which is part of the application submission). We do not accept housing deposits transferred from Parsons Paris or other universities.
    6. Wait for your 2019-2020 room and roommate assignment information. It will be sent to your New School email address in July (January for new spring applicants).

    Your housing application is not complete until you have made your $1,000 housing deposit. Please remember that this is a full-academic-year contractual obligation unless you are graduating or going on a study abroad for spring 2020.

    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. To request special housing accommodations, fill out the accommodation request form.

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

    Meal Plans

    All first-time freshmen living in student housing will have a mandatory dining plan for both semesters of their first year (two semesters). Learn more on the Meal Plans page.
