Fall Move-In Day: Tuesday, September 8, 2020
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.
Due to the postponement of the 2020 gaokao (Chinese University Entrance Exam), all universities in China are not allowed to start the fall semester earlier than mid-September. NYU Shanghai will start the fall semester on Monday, September 14. Students will move into their residence hall on Tuesday, September 8, and begin orientation before class starts. In the event that students will need to complete the 14-day quarantine, they will arrive in China on August 26, 2020, and go directly to the residence hall after the completion of the quarantine on Tuesday September 8.
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
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.
