Virtual Welcome Packet

  • Express Check-In Packet (WILL BE SENT OUT LATE SUMMER 2015): The Express Check-In Packet will allow you to print and complete several forms necessary for checking-in to the residence halls. Please bring these completed forms with you at your check in time. Doing so will expedite your check-in. We also ask that you complete the Emergency Information form that is linked to the Express Check-In Packet.
  • Early Arrival: Click here to complete the early arrival request process.  Everyone who wishes to arrive earlier than August 29th for any reason must complete the early arrival request.  The deadline for submitting an early arrival request will be August 17th.  Early arrival requests will be processed weekly beginning in the second week of July.  You will receive an email notification of the decision made regarding their request, but you may make necessary travel plans based on the dates you provide through the online form.  If you do not receive an email confirming your request within 1 week of your submission (and after the second week of July), please contact the Patrick Roger-Gordon, Director of Housing, or by phone at 212.346.1295, M-F, 9 AM to 5 PM.
  • Fall New Student Brochure: This is the brochure sent to all new incoming students who have been guaranteed fall housing.
  • Check-in Unloading Sign: If you arrive by car, this sign can be posted on your dash to alert police that you are  unloading. We suggest that students print at home and bring pass with them. While our residence hall and security staff work to help you unload and be ready to move your car as quickly as possible, Pace University is not responsible for your car, your belongings, or any traffic or parking citations you may receive. We strongly advise that you always leave at least one person with your car, and that person be ready and able to move the car if directed to do so by NYPD.
  • Map of nearby parking garages: Pace University does not have parking for students or parents in its New York City Campus. There is very limited free parking in our part of the city. The parking garages noted on this map have hourly and daily rates.
  • List of items sudent may and may not bring
  • Your Campus Address for NYC
  • Shipping items to Campus: As our ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, we encourage students not to ship items ahead of their arrival, but rather to bring their items to campus when they arrive. Students who live at a distance that prevents them from being able to drive into the city may need to ship items to the university. Our recommendation to these students is to have anything that needs to be shipped arranged to arrive to Pace University after the official move in weekend, as access to mail storage may be restricted during the holiday weekend (during which move in takes place). These students are strongly advised to travel with everything they will need for the first few days of living in the residence halls, until they will have access to their mailed items.  Other options for shipping before official move in weekend are listed on our Your Campus Address for NYC page.
  • Bed Bath and Beyond: BB&B is an excellent place to find many of the “last minute” necessities you will need on arrival. BB&B often offers special discounts for our students; PACE COUPON HERE. The BB&B location nearest to Pace is in Tribeca, a 15 minute walk from One Pace Plaza! During move-in on Saturday and Sunday a FREE shuttle bus will be provided, look for the signs!
  • Residence Hall Linens: The Housing and Residential Life Office would like to introduce you to Residence Hall Linens– a convenient source for ordering all of your campus living needs. We has partnered with Residence Hall Linens for several years to provide Pace University students and families with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have everything you need for life in our residence halls. The Residence Hall Linens program has it all, from sheets and comforters to matching towels and storage items. Proceeds from this program are used for programming in the residence halls. There’s free shipping on all Value Pak orders, and there are more than 40 color combinations available. Plus, linens are delivered to your home during the summer so you don’t have to venture out to the retail stores. Order now for the best selection – popular colors can sell out quickly!
  • Collegiate Storage and Rental: Students wishing to rent a microwave/refrigerator combination for the academic year (Maria’s Tower residents only) can utilize this service to do so. We recommend discussing this with your roommate first, as only one unit is permitted per residence hall room. Students who do not rent from Cecil may bring a small refrigerator, but are not permitted to bring a microwave.
  • Friends and Family Newsletter: Beginning in August of each year (running through May), the Office of Housing and Residential Life on the NYC campus offers a monthly email news letter for parents, family and friends of Pace students living on campus. To subscribe, please visit to subscribe, and we will keep you posted on everything that is happening in the residence halls!
