We have just learned that renovations of the Belgravia apartment complex that was due to house study away students this fall are behind schedule and will not be ready for the beginning of the semester.
However, we are pleased to inform you that we were able to secure space for students at the Grand Pujian Residence (http://www.mosaic-collection.com/grand-pujian-residence/) for the entire fall semester. The Grand Pujian, which is also home to some NYU Shanghai faculty, is a full-service apartment building, located one subway station away or a 15-20 minute walk from the NYU Shanghai campus. We will be providing shuttle service between the apartment and campus Monday-Friday and Safe Ride in the evening.
Each apartment is equipped with WiFi through which you can connect to the NYU Shanghai VPN to access the full array of internet services, and has a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, TV, and DVD player. The building also has a fitness center, and bedding and cleaning services twice a week. The first floor welcome center provides 24/7 concierge service, coffee, and snacks. An international grocery store “Lotus” is about a 5 minute walk away.
The shift in sites does require us to make two significant changes – students will now be living in converted double rooms, within three-bedroom, two-bathroom, serviced apartments (1350 square feet). This change also enables us to reduce the semester housing cost from $5,980 to $3,950. If you have already paid your fall semester bill, you will receive a credit to your account for the difference in accommodation costs.
To ensure that we match you with your requested room, please complete this google form where you can pull in your roommate and/or complete a full suite of 6 students. If you do not have a roommate preference, we will randomly assign you based on your lifestyle question submitted in the housing application.
We ask that you complete this form by Wednesday August 14th so we can make your housing assignments and send out your confirmation.
While we are sorry for the change, we are confident that you will be very happy in the Grand Pujian, and are very excited to see you soon.
