Recent Updates: The New School has plans to re-open its New York City campus for in-person teaching and learning in fall 2021. Please check the Parsons Paris website for information about our Paris campus. Learn more.

  • If this is your first time living in a residence hall, welcome! You will find this page especially helpful as you plan to move in. It includes information about dining on campus, what to bring (and not to bring), transportation in and around the city, parking maps, and more.

    Dining on Campus

    All first-year undergraduate students living in on-campus housing will have a mandatory dining plan for both semesters of their first year (two semesters). These students will be automatically enrolled in the One plan but may opt for the Two or Three plans if they prefer.

    Continuing students who live on campus will also be automatically enrolled in the One plan but may elect to participate in any of the four dining plans or opt out of the dining plan program entirely.

    The deadline for making changes to your dining plan selection for fall 2021 is September 13, 2021. Visit the Meal Plan page to learn more about each plan and how to change your selection.

    Before Moving In

    If you will be living in university housing, you must show proof of immunity against meningitis ACWY before you will be permitted to move into the residence hall. Students living in university housing are not eligible to decline the meningitis ACWY vaccination unless they have a valid medical or religious exemption on file. To learn more about these requirements, including where to submit your records, please visit the Immunizations page.

    Immunization records or exemption approvals must be submitted to Student Health Services by July 15, 2021. Failure to do so may result in losing your housing assignment. 

    Moving In

    The dates and procedures for check-in and check-out are important. For the 2021-2022 academic year, students will select an appointment time to move in. General move-in dates for each semester are available on our important dates timeline.

  • Moving Out

    Whether you are leaving in the middle of a semester or at the conclusion of your housing agreement, you should plan to properly check out of your residence hall. Detailed information will be sent to all students about the move-out process close to the end of their contract agreement. Please contact your residence hall director for check-out information.
