Housing & Dining



Students who opt to live on campus will stay at the Weinstein Residence Hall. Weinstein has a wide range of facilities. The 2nd Floor East Lounge has a big screen TV, a pool table, and it is our main space staff will hold events and activities outside of class. It is also often used as a study lounge. In the sub-cellar there are music practice rooms with pianos, a laundry room, and three classrooms, the largest of which is used as a study lounge when class is not going on.  The dining hall in the building will also be open during the program for both residential and commuter students to use.

The Weinstein Residence Hall is co-ed and each room has its own bathroom. As a part of the experience of college life, students will be responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of their own spaces.  Students will also need to bring their own linens–extra-long twin sheets, blankets, and towels.  Sets of linens are available for sale from the NYU Bookstore.

Residential Hall Staff
The residence hall is led by a team of professional administrators who oversee building operations, supervise the P.A.s, help plan and execute the events and activities offered during the summer, and serve as an important resource for students whenever they have a question or need.  The Residence Hall Director and Assistant Director oversee all operations and student life in the building, and the Resource Center Manager oversees the front desk and support services such as mail, move-in and move-out, and facilities needs.

In addition, each floor has its own Program Assistant (P.A.), a NYU college student who will be your main resource and guide during the program.  Your P.A. will host events in the hall and run the events and activities exploring the city, too!  Commuter students may not be living on campus but will still be an important part of the community!  Commuter students may also reach out to the P.A.s  should they have questions or needs.

P.A.s are on each floor, and all staff can be reached via the front desk of the residence hall.

All students living on campus must check-in to Weinstein Hall no later than 11:00 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 12:00 a.m. Friday-Saturday, students may leave the hall after 7:00 a.m. each day.  All students must be in their rooms and observe quiet hours by 1:00 a.m. nightly.  Students are required to submit their NYUCard to the residence hall front desk each night by curfew in order to be in compliance.

Overnight or Weekend Leave
Because we take student safety seriously and are very strict with curfew, it is important that we receive advance notice should a residential student plan to be away from campus on a particular night or during a weekend.  Parents are required to submit an Overnight Leave Form at least 48 hours in advance of a leave or by noon on Friday for a weekend leave.  Information about overnight leaves can be found in the NYU Summer High School Programs Handbook.

Living with someone else, getting to know your roommate, and learning how to respectfully share your space is one of the great benefits of choosing to live on campus.  Because of limited space in the residential hall and the goal of the residential experience to allow students to broaden their experiences and meet new people, students are not allowed roommate requests.


Students living on campus will be automatically enrolled in the 10-meal/week meal plan.  You may, if you wish, sign up for a larger meal plan.  Dining halls will be available to students seven days a week. Commuter students may also sign-up for a meal plan! Information about how to sign-up for or change a meal plan is available online.  Also don’t forget, your NYUCard will act as your dining card as well as your student ID.

The meal plans available are:
21 meals + $30 dining dollars = $269/week
17 meals + $30 dining dollars = $242/week
12 meals + $30 dining dollars = $187/week
10 meals and $30 Dining Dollars per week: $170/week (automatic for residential students)
8 meals and $30 Dining Dollars per week: $149/week (commuter students only)

Please note that residential students must have a minimum of 10 meals/week for their meal plan.  More information about summer dining is available online.

Move-In and Move-Out
Students living on campus may move in to the residence hall on Sunday beginning at 8:00 a.m.  We ask all students to move in no later than 2:00 p.m.  That will give you enough time to settle into your room before the start of the mandatory program orientation.  Students cannot move into the residence hall before Sunday.  If you arrive in New York City before that day, you should find your own accommodation in the city.

The last day of classes is Friday. Students must move out on Saturday by 12:00 p.m.  Students are not allowed to extend their stay.

Move-in and move-out dates for each session can be found on the Dates and Deadlines page.

Summer staff have created an online orientation to introduce students and families to this summer’s residential halls, staff, important policies, and student life.
