If you are coming to New York from another location, you may already be starting to think about housing for when you get here. Keep in mind that if you are currently an out-of-state student who will be trying to establish NY State residency (for in-state tuition purposes) you will need to do so by August 27th of 2015 in order to be eligible for in-state tuition in Fall of 2016. This applies to US citizens and US permanent residents only.
