(12 credits is the minimum requirement for full-time status at the Beren Campus.) By completing the housing application, the student is agreeing to follow all the rules and regulations, as stated on this website.
Submitting an application does not automatically guarantee a room assignment. The Office of University Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to grant housing privileges. Please note that every effect will be made to grant each student's building and/or housing request, however no request can be guaranteed.
* New students must submit their Intent to Enroll form (link) to the Office of Admissions before they are able to access the housing application. *

She will then be directed to another page where she again types the user ID and in the next box, type the email address she used when applying to Yeshiva University. By doing so, she will receive an automated email directing her how to set up a pin number.) Then click on "Undergraduate Housing Application".
There is a $250 housing deposit that is required to process the application. The non-refundable and non-transferable fee can be paid online with a credit card (Visa or MasterCard). In addition, the Office of Student Accounts on the Beren Campus will be available Monday-Thursday (215 Lex., 14th floor, 917-326-4940) from 9am-5pm, during regularly scheduled class days. Students should check in advance that there is no Financial Hold on their account, so that the deposit can be processed in a timely manner. (link to Student Accounts contact us page)
Each student should check that her class standing, as it appears on the application, is accurate. If there is an issue, please see the Office of the Registrar (link to registrarâ€™s contact us page) to update credit information.
Three emergency contacts are required for the application. Their home, day and cell phone numbers must be submitted. It is recommended that these individuals are people the student would feel comfortable contacting in case of an emergency. It is strongly recommended that all of the emergency contacts be relatives over the age of 18 years old, and that at least one contact live in the New York area.
If there is a request for a special accommodation due to a medical condition, disability or other circumstances, please provide a detailed description in the comment section of the medical page. Additionally, it is imperative to make an appointment with a University Housing and Residence Life Administrator before finalizing the application. Documentation is required before special accommodation requests can be considered. Proper documentation must be provided for current students by the April 12, 2011 deadline and for new students by the June 13, 2011 deadline. If documentation has already been provided, please indicate on the medical page to which office it has been submitted (ie. Student Health Center, Office of Disabilities Services) and authorize the release of this information.
In the comments section of this application, a student should include a brief description of her living style and what environment would create a productive college experience for her.
Current students do not need to upload a picture of themselves, their student ID picture will automatically be uploaded. New students do need to upload their pictures. On the picture section of the Housing application, she should click on BROWSE to select a picture from her computer. Then click on LOAD to upload the picture. Pictures must be no larger than two MegaBytes (2MB = 2048 KiloBytes = 2097152 Bytes). The picture can either be a JPEG (files ending with .jpg) or BMP (default WINDOWS format).
A student's current housing assignment does not guarantee that she will have the same or similar placement next year. Please note that every effort will be made to grant each student's building/housing request, however this cannot be guaranteed.
There will be an Open House, where current students can view various room options around campus. This will occur shortly after the Housing Application opens in the early spring.
Students who will be Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors for the upcoming semester, are required to submit a Brookdale option consisting of a full room. Any student who will be a senior for the upcoming semester is not required to submit a Brookdale option.
Each current student is required to request a full room when submitting each housing option.
Current students do not have a pot luck option. They are responsible to submit viable roommates for each housing option
Each student is assigned a Housing ID number, in addition to her Banner ID number. This number is the first four letters of your last name, the first four letters of your first legal name, followed by your birthday (MMDDYY) and it must be typed as lowercase letters. Example: Caroline (aka. Chana) Klein's birthday is August 7, 1990 so her Housing ID number is kleicaro080790. If either name is only three letters, just input the complete name. When requesting a roommate, input her Housing ID number rather than her name. Therefore, it is important to share this number only with the students who will be requested as roommates. This process ensures that the roommate requests are mutual.
If a current student is requesting to live with someone who has already been admitted to Yeshiva University, find out her Housing ID number and proceed with the application process as if she were already living in Brookdale. If the incoming student does not fit into this category, the application will not recognize her Housing ID. The current student should then add the requested new student's name to the Roommate Comment page. The current student will need to contact a Housing Administrator to continue with the application. In order for this request to be processed, the new student will need to submit her housing application by the June deadline.
The information that is input is automatically saved and students have the ability to return to the application at a later time. Once she has paid and reviewed all of her information, she should click the "Finalize" button, and the application will be finalized. If there is a need to change/update any information once the application has been submitted, please contact the Office of University Housing and Residence Life.
All applications received by the deadline will be considered on the same basis, this is NOT a "first come, first serve" system. Please remember that not submitting a housing application on time places the people requesting you at risk of not receiving their request as well. If the Office of University Housing and Residence Life does not receive the completed application for current students by the Tuesday, April 12, 2011 deadline, and for new students by the June 13, 2011 deadline, it will be assumed that you are not requesting University Housing for the 2011-2012 academic year.
This is a highly competitive process. There are many factors that are considered in coordinating housing placements, including but not limited to one's class standing. Each student is strongly encouraged to submit her housing application in by the deadline.
Each student will receive an email confirmation upon the receipt of her completed Housing Application. By the first week in August, she will receive an email stating her building assignment for the 2011-2012 academic year. When students arrive on campus for check in, she will receive her exact room and roommate assignment.
