Graduate Residences

The graduate residences at NYU Abu Dhabi are furnished apartments in buildings A3 and A4. These residences include studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments, which are fit to house a maximum of two or four residents respectively. The A3/A4 community is currently home to a mixed group of researchers, postdocs, and graduate students, and their families in some cases. 

Graduate students who share a two-bedroom apartment are assigned same-sex roommates, but each student has their own separate bedroom and bathroom, while sharing the unit’s kitchen and lounge space.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on campus, including in the A3/A4 residences, and this is strictly enforced. Pets are not allowed in A3/A4.

The Graduate and Postdoctoral Programs Office (GPPO) oversees A3/A4 student accommodation. Please contact with any questions.


Building Facilities

Each building has shared laundry facilities on the second level (washers and dryers may not be installed in the apartments). The second level of each building has lounge space and a multipurpose room for residents. The lounge is fully furnished including an oven, small stove, sink, microwave, television, games console, board games, coffee machine, foosball table, and wireless speaker.

Apartment Furnishings

Each apartment is fully, while simply, furnished to ease students’ transition to Abu Dhabi. Furnishings differ slightly based on apartment size but generally include bed(s), bedside tables, a desk, chairs or couches based on living room size and a kitchen table if space permits. Standard kitchen appliances include a two-burner stove, oven, microwave, fridge with freezer, and place settings for four. High-speed wireless internet, access to cable television, and utilities are also included.
