• Current Students

    If you are enrolled in a New School degree program in the current spring semester, you can remain in university student housing for the summer months whether or not you plan to take summer courses or an internship. For currently enrolled New School students, summer 2019 housing begins on Sunday, May 19, and ends on Saturday, August 10. We only have 12-week contracts available. Students will be able to stay in their spring assignment until their summer assignment is ready.

    The application for summer 2019 will be available in mid-March. Please email summerhousing@newschool.edu if you have specific questions or concerns.

    *If you are living in student housing for the spring 2019 term, you must be prepared to move into your summer assignment anytime from May 17 to May 21. The Residence Hall Director or Area Coordinator will notify you of your move-in date. Please do not make plans to leave the city until you have moved into your new space.

    Assignment Information

    All summer students will be housed at 20th Street or Kerrey Hall. The space you occupied during the 2018–2019 academic year may not be available for the summer and cannot be guaranteed if requested. We will make every effort to move you to your fall 2019 assignment, if available. We encourage students who wish to live in the same assignment for summer 2019 and fall 2019 to select a room on the 15th floor of Kerrey Hall during Housing Selection, if possible. Current New School students will be assigned the 15th floor of Kerrey Hall in summer 2019.


    Spring 2019 residents who receive summer 2019 housing should be prepared to move into their summer assignments between May 17 and May 21. You will be notified directly by the Residential Education staff by May 12, 2019, of your assigned move-in date. Failure to move by the assigned date may result in the loss of summer housing.

    You are required to be on campus between May 17 and May 21 to move into the room assigned to you for the summer when notified.

    New School summer students who are not living in student housing in the spring semester may check in to their assigned residence hall on Sunday, May 19, 2019, between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m.

    There are no refunds for late arrivals.


    Summer students must check out of their summer residence on Saturday, August 10, 2019, by 12:00 noon unless they are approved for interim housing.

    In order to be considered officially checked out, residents of student housing must have removed all personal possessions; removed any garbage and debris; returned the room, suite, and mailbox keys (where applicable); and completed the check-out paperwork. If any of the steps are not completed, residents may incur additional fees, charged directly to their student accounts.

    There are no refunds for early departures.

    Fall Interim Housing

    Summer residents of student housing who have a fall 2019 room assignment can remain in their summer residence after the end of summer session until the fall semester move-in period. Applications will be sent to eligible students in June. A fee will be charged directly to the student accounts of those who apply for interim housing.

    Students in interim housing who are assigned to rooms other than those they occupied during the academic year room are required to move within 24 hours of notice that their fall room assignment is ready. Residential Education staff will give notice between August 2 and August 30, 2019.

    Students in interim housing awaiting their academic-year room assignment are required to remain in residence until they have moved into the rooms assigned for the fall. Please plan accordingly. If you leave your interim room unattended, you will be responsible for any costs related to the removal and storage of your possessions.

    Students who subsequently cancel their fall 2019 housing will no longer be eligible for interim housing. Any student who cancels his or her fall 2019 housing during the interim housing period will be asked to leave within 24 hours after the Office of Student Housing receives the cancellation and will be charged a per diem rate of $50 a day for every day in residence after August 10, 2019.

    Stay Extensions

    Students whose summer classes end after August 10, 2019, and who do not plan to remain for the entire interim housing period can submit a written request for an extension of their summer housing contract to Housing and Residential Education. The request must be received no later than July 15, 2019. If an extension is approved, a per diem rate ($50 a day) will be charged directly to the student's fall 2019 account. The university reserves the right to change a resident's room for an extended period of residency. Approval for extensions of summer housing for students who do not have a room assignment for fall 2019 is not guaranteed.

    Cancellation Policy

    All cancellations of summer housing contracts must be made in writing to summerhousing@newschool.edu. The refund schedule is as follows:

    • Cancellation at least four weeks before the check-in date: 100 percent refund
    • Cancellation three to four weeks before check-in: 50 percent refund
    • Cancellation two weeks or less before check-in: no refund

    The $250 housing application fee is nonrefundable.

    Residents of summer housing who decide to vacate before the expiration of their contract must also cancel their contract in writing. There are no refunds for early departures. The residence hall must be vacated no later than 72 hours from the date of notification of approval of the cancellation request. Failure to vacate in a timely manner will result in additional penalties.
