*Actual room and board charges depend on several factors, including whether a student lives on or off campus. There is a range of housing and
meal plans available on campus at NYU. The standard figure for financial aid purposes represents room and board for an on-campus student living in a double occupancy room and selecting a typical 225 meal per semester "flex" dining plan. NYU housing provides local telephone service, wi-fi internet access, and cable television to the residence hall room at no additional charge. The on-campus standard rate is also used to represent the room and board costs for an off-campus student since costs on average are similar to on-campus options. Individual costs for off-campus living vary as the New York City area has many different housing options and associated costs, depending upon location, number of roommates, amenities, etc. Also, note that University meal plans are available for students who live off-campus.
