Prior to move-in, directions for completing this online form will be sent to all students who are guaranteed fall housing. The Housing Agreement is the formal agreement the student must sign to adhere to all the financial and behavioral responsibilities associated with being a resident student. Students may not move in to housing if they have not yet completed the Housing Agreement. Students under the age of 18 must also have a parent of guardian available at the time of check in to sign the form on their behalf.
Prior to move-in, directions for completing this online form will be sent to all students who are assigned to housing. The Pre-Arrival Form will allow students to complete and submit several online forms necessary for checking-in to the residence halls. Students may not move in to housing if they have not yet completed the Pre-Arrival Form .
The Westchester campus located at 861 Bedford Rd., Pleasantville, New York. In most cases, students will enter through Gate 3, but please be sure to check your email for specific move-in instructions for the term when you are planning to move in.
Our NYC residence halls are located in a number of places in Lower Manhattan. You can find directions to our NYC residence halls here.
Quarantining and Pre-Arrival Testing
Prior to move in, all students assigned to housing will be notified of any updated quarantine and testing requirements that may need to be imposed in order to be compliant with NY State government and Department of Health requirements. Requirements are subject to change over time. We encourage everyone to frequently check the NY State travel advisory website to help identify what quarantine and testing may apply to them.
NYC Parking Garages
While there is ample parking on the Pleasantville campus for the move in process, Pace University does not have parking for students or parents at 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.

Mandatory Floor and Security Meetings
In order to build community with your fellow floor mates, and to ensure that you receive critical information related to health and safety in the residence halls, mandatory meetings may be heldd during the first weeks of the semester (if so, times will be communicated by your RA). These meetings may be held in-person or via Zoom conference call. We ask that students remain flexible in their first weeks of the term in order to attend these meetings as scheduled by their building staff.

Shipping Items to Campus
As our ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, we ask that students unable to drive their belongings into the city, ship items to the university after they move-in. Access to mail storage may be limited during weekends. If you require delivery of large items prior to your move or storage at any point throughout the year, you may want to consider one of the following services that Pace students often use: Stashable, (877) 825-8661, or Collegiate Storage and Rental, (800) 883-8281.
Bedding, Sheets and Linen
Pace University residence mattresses are slightly longer (78”) than standard, so they usually fit both extra-long twin and regular twin sheets. You are welcome to bring your own bedding and linen, but the Residence Hall Association (RHA, a resident student leadership organization) would like to introduce you to Residence Hall Linens–a convenient source for ordering all of your campus living needs. RHA has partnered with Residence Hall Linens for several years to provide Pace University resident 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 by the RHA to support programming and activities 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. Please note that, if you choose to have your linens delivered directly to the university, we cannot guarantee their availability on move in day. Students and families ordering their linens in advance are strongly encouraged to have their linens delivered at home prior to departing for college.
If you would like to rent a MicroFridge, you may do so as follows:
- Pleasantville resident students, please contact Refrigerator Leasing Company
- New York City residents student please contact Door-to-Dorm from Collegiate Storage and Rental. Please note: in NYC, only students assigned to Maria's Tower may rent or bring in refrigerator (or microfridge) for their room.
