I have no source of income due to the school closing and I am very concerned about how I will pay rent next month if this continues for longer. I receive no financial help from parent or relatives and pay for school/rent/everything myself so any amount helps! Thanks so much and stay safe!

I support my disabled parents and myself through my on campus jobs and get housing by being an RA. If NYU closes housing I will be homeless, and if I cannot get paid from my on campus jobs I will have no income. I am an international student with no funds for a flight home (have not been home since I got here) nor can I leave while my OPT is being processed, and I cannot work off campus without violating my visa. My On campus jobs are my only income.

I just got laid off from my internship which was my only source of income. I don’t have a job or resources to pay for rent and food. Anything at all helps. I’m embarrassed it came down to this but I appreciate it endlessly. NYU’s recent announcement has made my future plans even more difficult. Thank you for all of your help!!

My off-campus job announced it was closing for the next two weeks starting March 14th. They’ve offered us to use our sick time but I don’t accrue a lot because I only work on weekends because of school. My rent is $1200 a month and despite a lot of sacrifices I’m able to make about $1000 a month plus enough to cover utilities and food and my parents help with the rest. I just lost half of my months income and have no clear way as to how I’m going to pay rent in two weeks, especially if my job’s closure is extended.

I am facing a financial crisis due to campus closing. Because I live off campus and rely only on my work study money and financial aid money to pay my bills, the reduction of hours of pay due to the corona virus closure puts me short of paying all of my bills. I need additional help to pay my rent, phone, food expenses, and more. I am at risk of losing my health insurance and nervous about how I will be able to pay all of my bills in the coming months.

As an RA, free housing and meal plan helped me survive and stay at this institution. My home does not have a space for me to stay nor the funds to financially support me in terms of food and other necessities. I’m currently trying to find a job and an apartment to last till the end of the semester and it’s just heartbreaking as a Senior that this is all happening in such short notice. I am truly grateful to the support of the NYU community and hope everyone is healthy and safe at these most difficult of times. ❤️

I'm going to have to pay for a flight, pay for moving costs, move into an Airbnb at the risk of not compromising any of my relatives' health, forfeit the income of my internships that I have now even though I am the sole breadwinner of my family, spend additional time managing 18 credits for a full workload semester, manage siblings, and manage schoolwork. This has been extremely inconvenient for me and I understand the health and safety risks associated with the coronavirus and why this had to happen. However, I know that the economic consequences of the coronavirus will lead to an unstable home situation, forfeited income, food insecurity, and more for me. Please assist if possible. My venmo is @mlim0usines. I'm already stretched out thin by everything happening and any amount can honestly help.

My mom just got into a car accident and our car is totaled. Money is really tight right now and having to get stuff from NYU is definitely an unexpected heavy expense right now. Any little bit helps, especially since I am unable to focus on finding a job because of the hectic state of society right now.

I am a senior RA from a single-parent household in Texas attending NYU Tisch solely because of student loans, scholarships, the RA position, + work study -- and who knows how much longer we will be compensated for on-campus jobs. My mom and I were/are not financially prepared for me to be stripped of the security the RA position (housing + meals) provides, much less find an apartment in the city with only a literal handful of days' notice.
I believe in us. I am scared, but I believe in us.

Honestly. At this point I’ve had to become so comfortable revealing the deepest darkest parts of my life to people so I can get some help. If I move out, I will return home to a place where I won’t even have a bed, let alone my own or even a shared room. I literally cannot work from “home” or be productive in the toxicity of that environment, and I put quotes around “home” because I genuinely do not have one. I used to spend everyday in highschool at my school until the janitor closed it at 10pm, just so I could get my homework done using the schools WiFi and quiet/clean environment to work.
I have also lost my job because of this. I was a cater waitress at Cipriani’s and haven’t had work in more than a month, since the first case surfaced in NYC with the man who worked across the street from Grand Central, which is on the same block as my job.
I genuinely feel like I have no option anymore besides having to tell my very deep, sob story that I haven’t even gotten the slightest bit through in this comment. If you can help me please anything is greatly, greatly appreciated. Hopefully I will be allowed to stay on campus because I cannot afford rent but any funds you send me will be used for groceries, necessities like pads and toothpaste, and helping me maintain my day to day health routine, which includes caring for a lymphatic disease I suffer from which impacts circulation in my legs and feet. Thank you taking your time to read this. Please if you’d like to reach out to me personally, @Meicha Hall on Facebook please do

I have lost both my part time jobs, lost my housing at Lafayette. This is my senior year (first gen) and my family lives in Texas. I come from a low income single parent household. Im on pell grant. My mom’s husband is very sick and because I am in NYC I can’t come home due to his underlying sicknesses. Staying at home in Texas is not an option for me. A) it’s expensive to fly out and B) I can’t risk someone’s else’s life.
I’m suffering from massive anxiety and stress. Dorming was already a tough decision because of its expense but now losing it is even worse.
I don't have a home to stay off-campus. In the past year, I stayed on campus but now they kicked everyone out. I am still looking for either an exemption to stay on campus or asking for a favor to accommodate me, otherwise, I am literally homeless. They now even took away dining options and I will have to save money for food. Going to school has never been such torment. I am trying my best to get an alternative to my lost part-time job, but the chance looks rather low.

I have maintained two internships (working total 40+ hours/week) in addition to working round the clock as a Resident Assistant at Coral and maintaining a full academic schedule. Without housing in NYC, I have lost all income from those three jobs as I am financially independent and reliant on those funds to put me through school and pay for necessities. Being forced to move out of Coral has driven me to return home where my father was laid off from one of his two jobs and I have now put my immunocompromised mother (she has heart failure) at risk of catching any illness I may have. This is an unbelievably unfair and selfish stance for the university to take, clearly not worried about the repercussions these actions may have on some portion of the student body.

My mother is facing losing her job and she is the only family I have, if she cannot provide for me during this I will have no source of income. I was working an on-campus job and going to transition right into Summer housing and then Fall housing. I have no home outside of housing and the University’s decision to force everyone out will immensely affect me and my mother financially. I have already had to ask NYU for extra aid this year. I do not know how I will be able to cover all the unforeseen costs that have risen from this decision.

Now due to Covid-19 I lost one of them and I can barely afford rent with what I earn as a graduate assistant. I can no longer go back to Egypt because I don’t have enough money for a ticket and due to the fact that Egypt has closed its airports. I really don’t know how to proceed at this moment.
