Residence halls on the Pleasantville campus

Important Housing Dates, Policies and Forms

Housing Dates

  • Guaranteed Housing Deadline

    May 1 is the deadline for both returning students and new students to deposit for housing in order to be guaranteed housing for the fall.

    Summer Communications

    Throughout the summer we will send information to new students about once each month. We will generally contact returning students only once during the course of the summer. Please watch for these communications, and be sure to follow any directions provided, as each step will be necessary for moving in to the residence halls.

    Move in appointment selection

    Starting in early August, students who are assigned to a room in on campus housing, and who have completed both the Housing Agreement and the Pre-Arrival form, and who meet the Vaccination Compliance requirements, will be able to begin selecting move in appointments.

    Move In

    Student Move-In (students must pre-register for a move in time; refer to email communications sent by the Housing Office in early August)

    All students must select a move-in appointment before they may move in. Please note that the targeted move-in dates for new students are September 2 and 3 for NYC, and September 3 for Pleasantville.

    A small number of move-in appointments will be available as early as August 31 (this is the absolute earliest that students may move in for the fall), but we ask that students do not select these earlier dates unless they have a dire need to arrive early. Move-in appointments will continue to be available through the start of classes for students who wish to move in later. Athletes who will be arriving early for team training should make plans in accordance with the directions they receive from their coach.

Residence Hall Insurance

While all cases of property loss and theft are dealt with in conjunction with our Office of Safety and Security, the University is not responsible for, and will not cover the replacement cost for items that are lost, damaged or stolen. A homeowner’s insurance policy, if available, may provide some coverage for a student’s personal property while away at university. Stand-alone renter’s or “dorm” insurance may provide more comprehensive coverage. This article by Consumer Reports provides an informative discussion regarding the various insurance options. There are many companies offering this type of insurance. While Pace does not endorse or recommend any particular insurer’s policy, Consumer Reports identifies “Two companies in this field and A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau are Arthur J. Gallagher and National Student Services.” We strongly encourage all residents to get an insurance policy that will cover the property they keep in their residence hall room.
