Before you arrive on campus, please make sure you have:
- Made your financial arrangements with the Office of Student Accounts (212.960.5269)
- Filed your completed medical forms: authorization, medical history, and MMR immunization
You will be given your room assignment when you arrive on campus.
University Housing is open throughout the academic year, including intersession between the fall and spring semesters. The exception is Passover vacation, at which time all housing facilities are closed.
Moving mid-year: Students must inform the housing office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2014, if they intend to withdraw from housing for the spring semester. Failure to do so will result in your getting billed for the spring semester. Please note, students remaining in housing for the spring semester begin being charged for the spring semester on the first day of winter break. Students should discuss any financial implications of moving out of housing with the Office of Student Accounts prior to finalizing any decisions.
If you leave behind large quantities of refuse after the official closing of University Housing, Facilities Services will remove them and charge a $100 handling fee.
When you leave for vacation periods during the year, please remember to:
- Close all the windows
- Remove all valuables from your room
- Turn out the lights
- Lock your door
- When feasible, unplug appliances (before unplugging refrigerators, it is recommended to empty its contents and leave the door open)
In order to provide a safe and secure environment, the University maintains careful control of room keys.
The University developed the following protocols with input from members of the Security staff, Office of Student Affairs, student councils, the Student Life Committee and, in part, with information gathered from other universities.
- You will be issued one key for your room.
- For safety's sake, please do not leave your room unlocked for any length of time, particularly when you go to the bathroom, or shower. Take your key with you!
- If you forget to bring your key back with you after a holiday or weekend, go to the Department of Safety and Security to obtain a new key.
- If you discover that your key is missing, you must notify Security immediately. In case of loss by a theft that is clearly without fault on the part of the keyholder, Campus Security and Facilities Services, together with the Director of University Housing and Residence Life, will review the particulars and decide if the replacement charges may be waived.
- If your room assignment during the semester is changed, you are responsible for returning the original key that was issued to you. Failure to do so may result in fees or cancellation of the move.
- Keys are and remain the property of Yeshiva University. They must be returned to the Department of Safety and Security (501 West 185th Street, basement entrance) when you complete the academic year or in the event of your earlier withdrawal from the University or University Housing. If you fail to do so, you will be charged $35 fee.
