Students enrolled in the High School Academy Career Edge program are not required to live on the NYU campus. Sometimes these students are from the local area and choose to return home after class. In other instances, students in these programs stay with family members in the City or travel to NYC with family members and choose to stay in a hotel with them. No matter what the circumstances, if you are a commuter student, you will be able to take advantage of the same benefits and activities as those students who live in the dorms.
Maggie Siu traveled from Macau with family to attend Career Edge. Each day she commuted back and forth to the hotel where they were staying, while taking advantage of extracurricular evening activities that were offered.
Students who are not living in the dorms can still access the Dining Halls for meals, but are not obligated to do so. They can also use all of the NYU facilities available to HS Academy students, including the library!
