Housing for Medical & MD/PhD Students

The Real Estate and Housing division works with Admissions, Student Affairs, Student Council, and other School of Medicine offices to coordinate housing accommodations for students.

The Housing Services Office, located at One Park Avenue, 5th floor, is responsible for overseeing housing applications, assignments, transfers, housing licenses ("leases"), moving in or vacating, and mail distribution in on-campus buildings. If you have questions, please e-mail the Housing Office. Single new students are assured of receiving housing offers when first matriculating. Accommodations for student couples are limited.

Housing locations available to new medical and MDPhD students include Vilcek Hall (334 East 26th Street) and Greenberg Hall (545 First Avenue.) Buildings and apartments are subject to change.

Real Estate's Property Management staff oversees matters such as furniture, repairs and maintenance, keys, etc. Please report these to your building superintendent. If your building superintendent cannot assist, please email Edward Berman or Luis Rodriguez.

Neither smoking nor pets are permitted in student housing.

Housing charges for Medical Students will appear on students' Bursar billing statements, divided into “Fall” housing charges and “Spring” housing charges. MDPhD students pay their monthly housing charges via payroll deduction from their stipends. Housing billing is overseen by a Finance Operations staff.

Each spring there is a housing transfer opportunity (Housing Lottery). The Housing Lottery process allows eligible continuing students to apply to move to available vacancies, within designated procedures. Students living off-campus can also participate in the Lottery if they wish to move into School of Medicine housing. The Housing Lottery policies and procedures are updated each year and will be accessible via an online Portal. Students will be notified about the phases of the process via email.

Once in NYU Langone housing, a student's housing license is renewable as long as the student remains eligible. Non-graduating students have one annual option to terminate their housing licenses as of June 30, as long as the appropriate advance notice is provided. Graduating students vacate as of May 31 of their graduation year.

If you are a current MD or MDPhD NYU School of Medicine student not living in NYU Langone Medical Center housing, your first step in Housing Lottery participation is to register on our new StarRez portal.
