Fall Move-In Day: Sunday, August 25th, 2019
Move-In Day is one of the most highly anticipated days of the university experience. After spending an entire summer preparing for your journey to NYU Shanghai, you will finally arrive to pick up your room key, and open the door to your new home away from home.
All NYU Shanghai first-year students live with someone of a different nationality, participating in an exchange of knowledge, culture, and ideas. To help you navigate this busy time, we will provide you with a packing list of suggested items to bring, and give you more details about your housing assignment.
Students who plan to arrive in Shanghai prior to Move-In Day, please note that you will need to find your own accommodations, as the residence halls will not be ready to receive you until Move-In Day.
Our staff and Orientation Ambassadors will be on site to welcome you from 9 AM to 9 PM on Move-In Day. When you arrive at the residence hall, please come to the 1st Floor Resource Center in Building #2 where you can pick up your room key and welcome package. If you arrive after 9 PM, you can still pick up your room key and welcome package at Public Safety, which is located in the lobby of Building #2
NYU Shanghai Airport Pickup Service
Airport pickup shuttle service from Pudong International Airport (PVG) will be arranged on Move-In day (August 25th, 2019) to bring you to the Residence Halls. Shuttle arrangements will be announced in one of the Summer Newsletters. Students will be given priority seating on shuttle buses, so seating for family members will not be guaranteed.
