The “Switch Request” process affords a current NYU School of Law student with a 2017-18 academic year housing assignment the opportunity to request a reassignment (switch) into another specific space/apartment type for Spring 2018. The form is located on our Housing Website: http://www.law.nyu.edu/housing/housingapplicationsandforms


The Switch Request Form will be accepted starting 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 27 – 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29. After these dates, request for reassignment will no longer be considered.


The forms must be submitted to THE OFFICE OF RESIDENTIAL LIFE located on the first floor of 240 Mercer Street during business hours. The forms will be time stamped and the offering of spaces will be based on when the form is submitted. Switch Request results will be emailed to residents by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 1, 2017.


A student placing his/her name, information, and signature on the Switch Request Form must make note of and agrees to the following:

  • Reassignments are granted on a space available basis. Priority for switches is determined by the date/time when the form is submitted.
  • Every student who places her/himself on this Switch List does so with the knowledge that if a reassignment is issued, it is done so:

    a) automatically
    b) on the basis of the preferences s/he indicated on this application
    c) regardless of location (unless very specific location information is provided)
    d) with the understanding that a reassignment is binding and irrevocable
    with the understanding that all switches must take place at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 13, 2018 and completed by 2:00 p.m. on the same date for those students with an approved switch
