All NYU Shanghai students live with someone of a different nationality, creating an unprecedented exchange of knowledge, culture, and ideas. You won’t be able to move into your residence hall until the official Move-In Day. If you arrive prior to this date, you’ll need to arrange for local accommodations by yourself.
Move-In Day is one of the most highly anticipated moments in the entire college experience. After preparing for your journey to NYU Shanghai, you finally arrive on campus, pick up your room key, and open the door to your new home. To help you go through this busy period of time, a suggested packing list and further housing assignment details will be provided.
When you arrive at the residence hall, please come to see us at the Resource Center in building #2. Our staff and Orientation Ambassadors will welcome you at the table from 9 AM to 9 PM on the Move-in Day. This is where you can pick up your room key and welcome package. If you arrive after 9 PM, you can get your room key and welcome package at Public Safety Office also located in building #2.
