Throughout the past few weeks you have received information and access to the Study Away Confirmation Portal. This is a final reminder that your housing application, required forms, and housing reservation payment) are due November 18. Please ensure to meet this deadline so local staff can begin making assignments and preparing for your arrival. You will receive your housing name and address about 1-2 weeks ahead of arrival.
As discussed in the orientation, when filling out the housing application, please remember to have an open mind and flexible outlook. Given the number of students attending, we want to honor requests where possible, but know that this is a bit dependent on your peers’ requests as well as availability. Particularly since there are very limited single rooms, it is likely that demand will far exceed the supply. Please feel free to be in touch with me if you have particular concerns – NYU Berlin staff and I want to assist as best as possible.
Lastly, please note that the portal also has a section for you to input your travel details. These are due by December 1 (only the housing portion closes November 18 – you can log back in to submit travel details if you don’t have them yet). This is critical so site staff are aware of when you intend to arrive and can keep an eye on any delays that may occur. The earlier you can submit these the better so staff can get a sense of common arrival times.
