Housing for MD & MD/PhD Students
MD and MD/PhD students are eligible to live in Greenberg Hall and Vilcek Hall. Buildings are subject to change. Single students are guaranteed housing when first matriculating. Housing for couples and families may be available. Learn more about the housing policy for couples and families.
Smoking and pets are not permitted in student housing. Apartments can be furnished upon request, subject to availability, at no additional charge, with the exception of studios in Vilcek Hall. Furniture request options are included in the housing licenses (“leases”).
Student Housing Lottery for Current MD and MD/PhD Students
Each spring, eligible MD and MD/PhD students can apply for housing transfers for the following year through a housing lottery. Students residing off campus may participate if they wish to request to move into campus housing. Note that lottery moves are scheduled to take place during June or July, including weekends and holidays. The move schedule is announced in mid-May.
The housing lottery policy and procedures are updated each year. Students are notified via email when the process starts, and detailed policies and instructions are provided.

Incoming MD and MD/PhD Students: Applying for Student Housing
Newly matriculated NYU School of Medicine students may apply for housing. Requests are reviewed according to the order in which the applications are received. Each student housing application requires a nonrefundable $100 application fee, which you can pay by credit card during the application process.
Housing registration and application instructions are provided through our housing portal. You will need your student “N Number,” which will be provided via the admissions process.
Registration: As a new student interested in student housing, your first step is to register in our data system. Please view the Registration video and then proceed to the portal to register. Please note that registration is not by itself a housing application.
After you complete the registration process, you will receive an email informing you that your registration is under review. Please allow time for review. After approval, you will receive an email providing you with login credentials so that you can return to the portal and complete a housing application.

Charges, Billing, and Payments
The NYU Bursar’s Office bills MD students for housing costs for the fall and spring terms. If a student vacates or changes housing during a billing period, that information will be submitted to the bursar for adjusted billing. Please note that Housing Services staff cannot view a student’s bursar’s bill. For more information on charges and billing, MD students should first contact NYU Bursar.
MD/PhD students are required to pay their monthly housing charges via payroll deduction from their stipend checks. Payment policies and instructions are provided when you receive your housing offer.
An additional resource for billing and payroll deduction information is NYU Langone’s Real Estate Development and Facilities finance operations team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Renewing Your License
The housing license is renewable as long as the student remains eligible. Students who are not graduating can, via the annual housing lottery, request to vacate their NYU Langone housing on June 30, after having given appropriate advance notice. Graduating students are required to vacate on May 31 of their graduation year.
Students may apply to sublet their housing spaces to an NYU affiliate who is eligible for an NYU or NYU Langone ID card (Housing Services does not provide ID cards). Sublets of 4 to 12 weeks per academic year are permitted for each student, with the permission of roommates, if applicable. Students can download the subletting policy and forms to begin the subletting process.
Guest passes allow limited access to the host’s NYU Langone residential building when a guest cannot at all times be accompanied by the host. Guest passes are not intended to provide access while the host is out of town. Guest passes do not provide guests with independent access to other medical center buildings or facilities, and guests are not provided with card swipe, lockout, mail, or key replacement services.
