Entry visas require that students be covered by health insurance that originates in the United Arab Emirates. Consequently, health insurance is a mandatory fee for any student who holds an NYUAD-sponsored UAE visa.


In accordance with the Federal Decree Law No (8) of 2017, a Value Added Tax will be applied to Estimated Health Insurance at the rate of 5%. Students who receive partial financial aid during the fall and spring semesters will be responsible for VAT charges during any given semester, including J-Term and summer.


The Estimated Campus Housing rate reflects the cost of a private bedroom within a shared 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom suite. A private studio or 1-bedroom unit, if required and available, would incur extra charges.
