Returning to I-House next year?

All Resident Members in good standing, with all outstanding balances paid, are invited to apply to renew their membership for all or part of the following academic year.

All eligibility requirements for admission must be met and qualifying documents must be provided to be considered for readmission. Readmission is not automatic or guaranteed, even in cases where eligibility is established, and is contingent upon approval by the Admissions Committee.

Readmission applicants receive priority for admission until July 1. After July 1, readmission applicants are given equal consideration with new applicants. All Resident Members who may need to stay at I-House, even if plans are not 100% finalized, are encouraged to apply early as there is time to finalize plans before making a commitment.


Full-time graduate students 

Full-time interns and trainees* (for one academic year only)

Visiting Scholars
21 years of age and older

To Apply

Step 1: Log on to the I-House Portal
Step 2: Click ‘Apply for Housing’ from the menu bar and select ‘Academic Year’
Step 3: Review the information and edit/complete all necessary fields
Step 4: Choose to either keep your current room or select a different room (beginning March 15)
Step 5: Submit the application


I want to leave at the end of the Academic Year and come back before the end of the Summer term to stay for the Academic Year. How do I inform you of that?

January 23, 2023

When completing the readmission application please indicate your return date, despite it being before the beginning of the Academic Year term. We will then set that date as your return date.

I do not know if I will be in the New York for the upcoming Academic Year, but if I am I definitely want to stay at I-House. What should I do?

January 23, 2023

You should submit a readmission application for the academic year before the March 15 deadline. By submitting the application we will hold a room for you and you have until mid-July to complete your application and August 1 to fully commit.

I missed the readmission deadline. What happens now?

January 23, 2023

You can still apply for readmission but your room may no longer be available and, depending on when you do apply, availability of rooms may be limited.

If my plans change and I need to cancel my readmission application, when I do I have to tell the Admissions Office to avoid a penalty?

January 23, 2023

After your readmission application is approved you will be asked to pay a $600 room reservation payment which will be refundable until August 1. If you cancel before August 1 you will receive a refund of the room reservation payment. If you cancel after August 1 you will forfeit the full $600 room reservation payment.
