Fall Move-In Day: Sunday, August 22, 2021
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.
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 in one of the summer newsletters, and give you more details about your housing assignment.
NYU Shanghai will start the fall semester on Monday, August 30. Students will move into their residence hall on Sunday, August 22, and join a week-long orientation before class starts. For International students, please start preparing for your Visa, and get vaccination as early as possible, and be prepared to arrive at lease 2-3 weeks earlier than the move-in date to complete a 14-day government managed quarantine.
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
We are still working on the airport pickup arrangement, and will announce the schedule in one of the summer newsletters once we finalize the plan.
Shanghai Airports and Railway Stations
Traveling from the Airport
*Note: If you arrive from abroad (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), you will be assigned a quarantine hotel based on the availability at the Pudong International Airport directly after you complete the covid-19 test at the airport.
The cost of the fare to campus usually costs around 120 to 150 RMB (19-24 USD), depending on traffic at your time of arrival. More advice about using taxis can be found in the NYU Shanghai Online Pre-Arrival Orientation, which will be emailed to you during the summer.
