Real Estate and Housing, an administrative affiliate of NYU Long Island School of Medicine, shares the goal of providing safe and comfortable living environments for students, including those whose gender identities differ from the sexes assigned to them at birth.

Due to limitations in housing availability, there is no guarantee that housing preferences can be met, but we are committed to working with the associate dean of NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s Office of Students and Diversity and those who are seeking housing to make best efforts for accommodations.

Charges, Billing, and Payments

The NYU Bursar’s Office bills medical 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 bills from the Bursar’s Office For more information on charges and billing, contact NYU’s Bursar Office.

The primary resource for billing housing charges information is NYU Langone’s Real Estate Development and Facilities Finance Operations team at redf.finance@nyulangone.org.

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.
