Ok, this is not just my opinion but rather the unanimous consensus of all NYU housing students: we hate it. Why? 1) more expensive than if you wanted to find your own apartment 2) they make you move out during finals. What the f#####k? of course you can prolong your stay for 250 dollars/week 3) I was lucky but a lot of students were put together with weirdoes from the arts programs or philosophy, etc 4) a billion more complications that I am too hurt to even talk about. Please listen to me: even if you've made a payment, it's not worth going for it. Please!
