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

Map of nearby 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 EZ College Storage, (914) 861-5377, a company with which Pace has worked with for several years.

Bedding, Sheets and Linen

Pace University residence hall mattresses are slightly longer (78”) than standard, so they usually fit both extra-long twin and regular twin sheets, although extra-long linens tend to fit better.

You are welcome to bring your own bedding and linen, but the Residence Hall Association (RHA, a resident student leadership organization) has partnered with Dormify, the one-stop shop for college, to help you easily find everything you'll need for your room. From bedding + dorm bundles to storage essentials + trending décor, Dormify has curated all of the items you'll need to make your transition to college easy. Start shopping and get ready for move-in day.

MicroFridge Rental

Students may not bring in personal refrigerators (whether owned or rented). Pace University provides a refrigerator unit in each residence hall room or suite. In most cases (with the exception of the townhouses on the Pleasantville campus, and the suites in 15 Beekman) the unit provided is a Microwave/Refrigerator combination. In the 15 Beekman suites, a large refrigerator and separate microwave is provided per suite. In the townhouses, a large refrigerator is provided per suite, and students may bring ONE microwave per house or suite.
