In its treatment of our students, NYU acts more like a collection agency than a university

By Alex Zimmerman

A New York University student who grabbed headlines when she accused the school of pulling a bait-and-switch with its sticker price has been forced to move into university housing under threat of expulsion. Nia Mirza, who, after being told by university officials that she could live with relatives near NYU’s Washington D.C. campus to help offset the cost of her tuition, says she must now move into campus housing if she wishes to continue her education there.

NYU’s Student Labor Action Movement is arguing that the university’s backtracking on the housing exemption that was granted earlier this year is in retaliation for Mirza’s outspoken comments about the school’s high tuition costs.
