Residential Life and Housing

In Spring 2023, on-campus students will be moved to Yaohua Residence Hall (NO.533, Jiming Road).

Living in our residence halls and participating in residence-based activities with classmates from around the world is central to the NYU Shanghai experience.

At NYU Shanghai, living in university-sponsored housing is mandatory for all freshman, sophomores, and Study Away Students. NYU Shanghai juniors and seniors may live off-campus in accordance with the Off-Campus Housing Policy, which may be found in the NYU Shanghai Community Standards Guide

About the Halls

About th Halls

NYU Shanghai's two residence halls at Green Center Towers and Pusan offer single, double, or triple rooms. 18 to 20 students reside on each floor, which is overseen by one upper-class resident assistant (RA), who also serves as a peer mentor. The rooms contain basic amenities, including beds, desks, chairs, and closets. Each floor has communal bathrooms and sinks. Students also have access to shared kitchens, washers and dryers.

The Residential Life Team

The Residential Life Team

Along with the RA, the Office of Student Life's Residential Life team serves as an additional resource and support system to students as they navigate the university environment. The Residential Life team is responsible for maintaining an environment that supports every student’s academic goals and personal interests.

The Residential Life team also strives to create a community that enables students to live independently and transition smoothly into a new environment away from home. The team has designed residential programming to promote learning outside the classroom, cultural appreciation, and a sense of community among students. The team is also responsible for upholding a high standard of conduct and safety in the residence halls.
