Residential Life

Commuter Students

Students enrolled in the High School Academy Career Edge program and the Summer College program are not obligated 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 NY with family members and choose to stay in a hotel with them. No matter what the circumstance, 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.

Kimmel Center
Residential and commuter students learn about NYU facilities during a tour of the campus.

Students who are not living in the dorms can still opt to participate in the meal plan, but are not obligated to do so. They can also use all of the NYU facilities including the library and the Writing Center to name a few.
